We begin Side A with a well done demo from Pete Jensen, this month's interview subject. We fill up the rest of Side A with a strong selection of promos from around the globe. There's some Christmas flavor sprinkled on both sides, so be sure to file any ideas you get for next Christmas. Cut 9 from Greg Williams/WMC is a compilation promo of a series of events that took place over the Christmas holidays. The morning show got the snowball rolling with a Tickle Me Elmo doll. It's a great example of the power of radio. Cut 10 is the audio for this month's Producer's VU column. The sweeper is one intense piece of production from Hal Knapp at Z100 in New York. Read then listen, or listen then read!

Side B opens with an impressive piece of work from Mike McCann at Airlift Productions in New Orleans. It's titled "Is Anyone Home at the Gettysburg Address" and features a wonderful read from Mike's 10-year old daughter, Katy. The rest of the side is filled a host of creative ads. Cut 2 is a great alternative to the usual loud "Superbowl Party" spots. Cut 3 is a spot for bubble gum; more excellent production targeted to kids from Kidstar. Cut 9 comes from some young producers at a campus station in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Cut 13 challenged the creative team at WMYI as they had to come up with a spot that advertises real gambling with video poker machines, but they could not mention that it was gambling.
