This month, as we did last year, we feature the winners and runners-up of the 2nd Annual Firsty Award competition. All of side A consists of the majority of the spots and promos, and the last four cuts are on the front of side B.
Immediately following the Firsty spots and promos on side B is a montage of work from this month's interviewee, Mitch Craig. The montage consists of sweepers/ID's, promos, and excerpts from some of the presentations Mitch produced for his production libraries. So listen, not only for Mitch's voice and production work on sweepers and promos, but for samples from his libraries and how Mitch presents his libraries on his demos. Mitch tells us that some of the promos were produced by M.J. Kelli at Pirate Radio and Dave Fox of Z100.
Following Mitch on side B, we have another freebie parody from the team of Laszlo & Gary. Gary Kleinman reports great response to "Ooooh! Don't Touch That!" from across the country, and offers the cut to RAP subscribers for use on your airwaves. For more info on Laszlo & Gary or for a better copy of the song, call (818) 888-0652.
Finally, David Roberts of WVOR-FM in Rochester pulls out something from the archives that we thought was good for a chuckle.
