This material is confidential and be careful what you write here.

Nothing is ever confidential - you know that!

Be careful about writing anything negative about an auditionee - just technical details.

Realise that this book will be around the Radio Studio all the time, and other eyes could view it.

It is useful to have a scoring system out of ten. This is just a quick reference.
