The R.A.P. Soundstage - March 2015

Drum roll, please! Ladies and gents, here are your finalists of the 25th 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! As always, the competition in each category was tight, and there are many great pieces of work not listed here. 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.

Support the R.A.P. Soundstageby sending some audio you’ve recently produced at your studios. Please include your e-mail address for anyone interested in finding out details about the work. Promos, commercials, sweepers/IDs, bits, spoof spots, song parodies, and most any other good piece of production are welcome. If you send sweeper/ID montages, make them around sixty to ninety seconds long max. All other items should be sent on separate files. Please normalize your mp3 files and trim the silence from the front and back. Email to jv@rapmag.com, and thank you for supporting the R.A.P. Soundstage, formerly known as The R.A.P. CD and The R.A.P Cassette from way back in the day – none of which exist or have existed without you. :-)
