We kick off Side A with a kickin' demo from Nick Sommers of TourDesign. The front part of the demo features concert spots, and the back part of the demo features some of Nick's sweeper/ID work. Our interview last month with John Dodge (PD at Classical WCRB Boston) encouraged Tom Richards to send in some creative work he has done for classical KRTS/KRGK in Houston on cut 2. But the creativity doesn't stop there. The rest of Side A is filled with some great promos and wraps up with a couple of sweeper montages.

Side B opens with a spot from Craig Rogers that needs a bit of a set-up. Craig writes: Our traffic reporter, Captain Jack, has a sponsorship for two of his reports in the 4 p.m. hour. This spot is for one of those sponsorships, so it will always run at 4:22 or 4:54, immediately following the report. So, we had the afternoon drive host open the spot with a fake time check, then segued to the scanning radio dial -- sucks the listener right in. The rest of Side B is filled with more creative commercials from subscribers everywhere! Kudos to all Cassette entries this month!
