Side A begins with work from this month's interviewee, M.J. Kelli of Pirate Radio. Immediately following (cuts 2 & 3) are two promos that received awards at this year's International Radio Festival in New York. The first one, from Peter Drew of WTIC-AM, won a gold medal. The second one, from Jim Cutler of Jim Cutler Creative Audio, picked up a bronze medal. On side B, we devote cuts 1 through 8 to some very creative club spots.
Side A: PROMOS
Cut 1 - Montage of work from M.J. Kelli/Pirate Radio, Los Angeles. M.J. sends this note with his tape: All cuts were fully produced at Pirate Radio from dry voice overs by: Mitch Craig, Mark Driscoll, Scott Shannon, Vic Caroli, and M.J. Kelli. Production packages used: Chainsaw One by Techsonics and Techsonics 2, with a few odd natural SFX from Hollywood Edge, Sound Ideas, Star Trek, and Mr. Tone Generator. If anyone wants to know how a certain effect was done or just wanna BS, my direct line at Pirate is 213-856-4685. Any questions about Chainsaw or Techsonics can be answered by me or Steve Peppos at Techsonics headquarters in Virginia -- 804-547-4000.
Cut 2 - "The Great Connecticut Duck Race" from Peter Drew/WTIC-AM, Hartford, CT. NOTE: This is one of six promos for the "Duck Race" Peter sent us several months ago. We are not sure this is THE promo that won the gold medal mentioned above, and we were unable to contact Peter in time to determine which of the six was the winning promo. So, we took a guess. If it turns out this was not the promo, we'll include the correct one on next month's Cassette after we've talked with Peter.
