January 2016

Submissions for the Soundstage were pretty slim this past month, but we did receive enough gems to give you another good dose of creative inspiration. If you haven’t contributed in a while, help us keep it going with YOUR contribution for the February Soundstage. Deadline for February will be Friday, January 22nd.

Up first is this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner, an ace promo from Evan Surminski at Corus Radio Winnipeg for the Shadoe Davis show – cool concept, well-performed and produced! Track 2 is audio Dave Foxx references in his Production 212 column -- it’s the last promo he wrote, cut and produced for Z100 before his exit! Track 3 is the commercial Dennis Daniel talks about at the end of his Commercial Chronicles column this month. Track 4 is a spot Steve Wein produced back in 1973 and talks about in his Q It Up response on pages 6/7. Track 5 comes from Dave Stalker, a spot he had in the station archives that the client decided to start running again – a really good, creative spot that Dave notes was produced by an agency in Portland called Pink Martini and thought it was worth sharing, and it is. Track 6 from the young Tom Baker is a spot he entered in the NextRadio contest. It placed 1st and aired on 30+ stations nationwide! More commercials are on tracks 6-13. Track 9 features a British accent on the VO, but this spot isn’t from the UK -- interesting how a non-local accent can put a whole new flavor on the message. We get some excellent promo work on tracks 14-17, and we wrap it up with some imaging montages on tracks 18-20. The teasers on track 20 were interspersed in regular programming before a station launch.
