Congrats to RAP writer and member John Pellegrini/WKLQ-FM, Grand Rapids. He and co-worker Scott Sundberg recently won an ADDY for some commercials for Gordy's Markets -- the spots were on the May '93 RAP Cassette! Also, he's gettin' hitched on March 5 to Sarah Reyff! John writes: Although we're not registered with any broadcasting equipment supply companies, a digital workstation or a word processor would be a welcome wedding gift. I'll leave it to the kindness of individual RAP members to decide! HAH!
