Welcome to the 54th Cassette! Side A opens with an impressive collection of work from Holly Buchanan and company, subject of this month's interview! We fill out the middle of side A with a handful of promos then close the side with four first rate sweeper montages.

Side B opens with the three Mercury Awards finalists Flip Michaels writes about in this month's Cheat Sheet. We get our first dose of a client capitalizing on the Jurassic Park craze from Scott Statham/WLAP (cut 4), and we get our first Jurassic Park flavored spoof (cut 14) from Rafe Sampson/WCFL. Side B wraps with a moving tribute to Conway Twitty from Al Mason/WLWI.
