We begin side A with work from Craig Jackman, Production Director at CHEZ-FM in Ottawa and subject of this month's interview. Cuts 2 and 3 creatively jump on some recent news headlines. Cut 7 is the parody from Jon Rose/WBYR-FM that goes along with the story on page 16, "I'd Rather Hear A Dog Puke!" Cuts 8 and 9 are the audio portion of this month's new Promo Page from Larry Williams/KYKY-FM. We wrap up side A with some sweepers from Fox FM in Victoria, Australia. The sweepers provide a nice segue to...
...Side B, which opens with the "A-Team" demo we mentioned in the "Mix" section. We were initially going to edit the five minute demo and give you a smaller sample of the A-Team's work. However, the demo is so good, we decided to give you the whole thing! Not only are the Australian voices top of the line, but the production done on the demo is incredible! Cut 2 is the audio portion of this month's Test Drive on 27th Dimension's MIDI Files. The entire cut is about a minute and a half long and consists of seven segments. The first is about ten to fifteen seconds of the original, unaltered version of "Isle of Dreams." The following six segments are six variations of that same MIDI file, changing tempos, instruments, etc.. Cut 3 is a fun spot from Gary Van Allan which features his son, Ryan. We get more "kids on spots" on cut 4! We wrap up side B with a couple of creative spots for pet stores.
