We begin Side A with a demo from this month’s interviewee, Randy Horvath of Vanilla Gorilla Productions! We fill out the rest of the side with another great collection of creative promo and sweeper work. We have award winners on this month’s Cassette. Cut 7 from CHUM-FM won both the Gold and Grand Award for Best Station Promo/Large Markets in the ’95 New York Festival awards competition, and this was 4-track production!

Side B opens with this month’s Producer’s VU audio. We veer away from the normal commercial exhibit on this side and offer several feature length productions up front. Cut 2 is a well done tribute to Princess Diana from Scott Mackay, the Imaging Producer for WXCD in Chicago. Cut 3 comes from Don Elliot/KFI, Los Angeles with this note: ‘Bad Attitude’ instrumental by Gary Kleinman features 13 different V/O talents in LA--people with ‘bad attitudes’--Bruce Vidal as Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Martin as Darth Vader, Don Elliot as Clint Eastwood, and more! (All done to click-track, one at a time...Robert W. Morgan, disclaimer.) Smokers should get a kick out of cut 4, a bit for the Martin-Malloy morning show from Fox FM in Melbourne, Australia. And we can’t let you go without a few commercials. Greg Williams gets the family involved on Cut 5. The ’60s come alive on Cut 6. Every club owner should allow creative freedom like you’ll hear on cut 7. And Cut 8 is another award winner. Taco Tico took 1st Place/:30 Commercial/Medium Market Radio in the 1997 Kansas Association of Broadcasters awards competition. Nice work everyone!
