The R.A.P. Soundstage - May 2017

The 27th RAP Awards: Best of the Rest – Part 2: Imaging & Commercials

We wrap up the 27th Radio And Production Awards this month with the Best of the Rest - Part 2, shining the light on the Best of the Rest from the Imaging and Commercial categories. Imaging is found on tracks 1-9. Large Market Commercials on tracks 10-17, Medium Market Commercials on tracks 18-23, and Small Market Commercials wrap it up on tracks 24-31.  Great work everyone, and we hope to see and hear your entries again next year, hopefully in the Finals!

Note: The numbers next to each track 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. Soundstage by 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, 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 have existed without you. ?
