Welcome to the 109th edition of the Radio And Production Cassette! Side A kicks off with a potent sample of production from Stew Herrera/KLOS, Los Angeles, this month’s RAP Interview subject. Turn it up! The rest of Side A offers a selection of superb commercials sure to get those creative juices gushing. 

Side B opens with audio for this month’s Producer’s VU, an excellent piece of production from Brian Wilson done when he was at KODZ-FM in Dallas, Texas. Read the column then listen, or listen then read! The rest of Side B is devoted to promos and imaging montages. Cut 14, from Top Format Productions in The Netherlands, features a nice combination of a cappella jingles, synth effects, and voice-over for 3FM.
