Side A begins with a series of superb commercials from this month’s interview subject, Eric Stephens/Red Monkey Ads & Ideas! You’ll hear the RAP award winning spot for Accessory Outfitters, the two Radio Mercury award winning spots for The Clutch Doctors, and several other gems from those Red Monkey guys. The rest of Side A is filled with more great commercial work from around the world.

Side B opens with the audio for this month’s Producer’s VU column, an entertaining and well-done jingle from Rob Walker/WALC, St. Louis. Read how he did it in this month’s column, then crank it up. The rest of Side B is packed with some great promos. Don’t let your GM hear cut 2. It proves that you don’t need all those libraries for promo music, zips, zaps, and whooshes. All sound effects and music came from the mouth of the station’s promotions guy. He’s no Bobby McFerrin, but it’s a great promo nonetheless.
