First up on the Soundstage is this month’s Editor’s Choice Award winner! Ryan Spooner at Tyler Hodkinson at Larche Communications in Owen Sound do a nice job on this spot for “All Drains Plus”. Cut 2 is the promo Dave Foxx talks about in his column. More creative commercial work is on tracks 3 – 8. Tracks 5 and 6 each contain a few spots from two campaigns. There are three 30s on track 5 and two 30s on track 6. We get a couple of promos on tracks 9 and 10, some hot summer splitters from Gary McClenaghan on track 11, a fun parody on track 12, and we wrap it up with something a little different. It's not always about the lasers and beat-matching. Sometimes a production pro has to 'rescue' (edit) audio to make it airable. When a guest canceled his appearance on the syndicated 'Mom Talk Radio Show' at the very last second, the host improvised a tease which, needless to say, had to be edited for airplay. For DC-based engineer Al Peterson, it was gold.
