This month's Cassette kicks off with a marvelous demo from interviewee, Steve Martin of BBC Radio Scotland. Be sure to read the interview! We get a nice selection of promos on the rest of Side A. Cut 7 from Todd Beezley/WKKD deserves some kind of award! Todd writes: Your most recent Cassette inspired me [June 95]. While the production quality and creativity of each individual spot were, as usual, outstanding, I noted with some dismay that we really have only a few timeworn tricks to work with in our collective promo bags. And, after a while, those techniques tend to run together in something of a b-b-b-blur. Hence, the "Anti-zap Promo," a call to a simpler kind of life when everyone worked with 2-track analog (we still do at WKKD). Great job, Todd! We wrap up the side with a tear-jerker for Mom's day from Ron Maxwell/WSOR.

Side B is chock full creative commercials sure to ignite a fire and inspire. Side B wraps with a tune Dennis Daniel felt compelled to produce. The "Talkin' Production Director Blues" wasn't produced for broadcast; it was produced just for you! It could well become the Production Director's Anthem!

ATTENTION! Andy Capp's ...And Make It Real Creative column this month talks about a spoof spot he did. He didn't send the spot in for The Cassette this month, but he promises to send it in for next month. He also came up with a great idea. Let's devote the August Cassette to nothing but spoof spots/promos, etc.! Send 'em in! Then get ready for one heck of a Cassette next month!
