First of all we want to say great job for every R.A.P. mag that comes our way.
The articles you guys churn out are really very educational and encouraging, especially for guys like us stuck out here this side of the planet. It's worth the wait every month.
We at YESFM Sri Lanka have two very young producers who hound me for the magazine - not even their paychecks! Total fascination on Production 212 by Dave Foxx, the interviews, the columns, and the samples you include from just about every great radio station on the CD sample.

...and thanks for the great job you guys do each month - I can't tell you how much I've learned in just the 2 issues I got from you!

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate R.A.P. magazine and all the people you feature. I have to pace myself reading it or I'll be done too soon and will be chomping at the bit for next months. Great job talking to all the right people!
Your interviews, in the April '03 issue, featuring Nick Michaels, was extremely enlightening! My production staff loves your mag and we look forward to the "right on the mark" articles you supply. Tthanks for the info and the chance to be featured in your CD!

R.A.P. Mag is one of, if not the best radio magazine available on the planet. We use it as a tremendous resource at our college too. As I told students last week, it's hard to imagine there are actually managers who won't spring the small subscription fee to make this available to production or programming staff. It will pay for itself in 1 week!

So I'm chatin' with my PD the other day and I said, "I wish they made a magazine for production people." He tosses me the Jan. '03 R.A.P. Mag and says, "Here ya go!" I had know idea.. Read it cover to cover.. It's "Kick Ass!" I'm your biggest fan now. Keep up the good work.

Looks like things are still rocking and rolling at R.A.P. Magazine. In our increasingly isolated world, it's nice to know there are others out there fighting the same battles.

I am obliged to the publishers of this periodical and to those of you who read it. I have learned much from this magazine, and I have made many friends around the world because of my association with it.

...just wanted to say your article on copyrights was very informative! In fact I went over it in detail at my Production Staff Meeting and Sales Meeting. Good stuff. And as usual, the feature article on Joel Moss was a big hit with my, want to be great, air staff.

Your mag still speaks the language of the wireless prod room better than anything under the sun.
Todd Manley, Production Director/Asst. Program Director
First, let me say that I am a new subscriber to your magazine. I can describe it in one word: THA BOMB! (Well, that's two words so shoot me). Anyway, that means I like it a lot.

I'm just dropping a line to express my thanks to R.A.P. Mag for the fantastic interviews, inspirations and ideas. I started reading your magazine a few years ago after I was hired for my first full time production position in dinky little market 218 in Winchester VA. I've been hooked ever since, and thanks in large part to your magazine I developed my own skills and style and have moved into the big leagues in Washington D.C. I just renewed my subscription out here and I can't wait to dive back in! Thanks guys!!
John Mangino, Imaging Guy
Thanks for the great articles and thanks for the ongoing info! It is invaluable to both me and my staff.
Dennis Coleman, Production Director
Thanks for such a valuable magazine—far more constructive for what I do on a daily basis than trades such as R&R and FMQB.

I am a subscriber to your fine production magazine and study it and The Cassette faithfully, for idea starters and production tips. Keep up the good work. You rock!

We enjoy the tapes and the publication and always get some good info/ideas/motivation out of both of them.

With all the resources available for production types now, R.A.P. remains in my opinion the single most valuable resource. Thanks!

Really enjoy the magazine. I especially love the Radio Hed stuff. He talked to our ad-club last year and his little tips are amazingly helpful!

Thanks for all the awesome articles and Cassettes with great production. They have pumped us up to the max to produce excellent spots, promos, etc. for the Christian community without forgetting about our message.

Thank you for a great publication! The articles, interviews, and tips are great. I especially love new product reviews. Without a doubt, Radio And Production has been one of the best investments I've made in a long time.

I love this magazine!!! It's nice to hear other production folks and their woes. I realize that I am not alone, in my situation, nor unique in my opinions of how things should be.

Radio And Production magazine is read cover to cover monthly, and The Cassette is both refreshing and inspiring.

Your magazine and monthly cassette are valuable tools of the trade in my studio. I look forward to each new edition, and am never disappointed. Thank you all for providing a resource that connects production people all around the globe.

You guys do great work. I don't believe there is an industry publication that serves its audience better than Radio And Production!

I very much enjoy the magazine. It seems to come at just the right time every month when you need the "prod boost."

Thank you for your outstanding work with R.A.P. Magazine. After almost ten years of reading R.A.P., I still find it to be very interesting and helpful...keep up the good work for years to come!

Thank you all for providing us lonely producers of the Western world with not only a very interesting and valuable publication, but also, and perhaps even more importantly, a reference point with which we may gauge the quality of our radio stations, our working conditions, and ultimately, our performance. Oh yeah, and The Cassette is pretty cool, too!
