The 26th RAP Awards - Finalists

Drum roll, please! Ladies and gents, here are your finalists of the 26th Radio And Production Awards! R.A.P. Gold Members will be receiving ballots and casting the votes for their favorites in each category, and the winners will be announced in next month’s issue of Radio And Production. Congrats to all who got to the finals! Lots of familiar names and a few newcomers as well. As always, the competition in each category was tight with several entries missing by the slimmest margins. That’s why we invite you to stay tuned for the Best of the Rest presentations on the May and June Soundstages!

Note: The numbers next to each Finalist only reflect the cut number on the Soundstage player and do not indicate any ranking in votes received. The name on each entry is the name of the person submitting the entry, unless that person was not a participant in creating the entry, in which case, the name listed is the name of the producer.
