This Month On The Cassette: Welcome to the July '99 RAP Cassette! We get things going with a top-notch voice/production demo from this month's interview subject, Tom Richards/WBEB-FM. A great selection of creative commercial work fills out the rest of Side A. Cut 9 from Andrew Murdoch/SILK FM is good inspiration for anyone who gets limited copy facts to work with. Andrew only had enough copy for a tag, but a couple of announcers and some effects created a spot that was very successful for the client. Side B delivers some excellent promo and sweeper work, including a few more promos taking advantage of the Star Wars hype. We wrap up the side with three hot sweeper montages.
