Hey! Looking for a reason to celebrate? Join us as we celebrate Radio And Production's Fifth Anniversary! We'd like to take this space to extend our most sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to RAP's first five years. Of course, none of it would have been possible without the people who make up the RAP membership. Nor could RAP have lasted five years without the many advertisers who saw the wisdom in targeting their message directly at radio's production personnel. A special thanks also to the sixty or so individuals who let us spotlight them with the RAP Interview, and a hearty show of gratitude to the countless people who have contributed articles, tips, comments, and the general information that has made Radio And Production everything that it is. Thank you! We look forward to another five years of service to you!
