I use the levels to set a basic mix, from there I go work.

I work in sports promos, so music really drives our spots. I like to have as much music as possible. I like to create a hole in the music to allow space for the voice. I will remove a portion of the music using the EQ, then will add a little to that same frequency of the voice. This allows me to really drive the tunes. Usually the EQ frequency is around 1.5 khz (give or take).

As other have said, there is no exact rule to follow. Get yourself some good mixing speaker (nice and flat), and get a crappy speaker (tv speaker will do fine) your mix through both....chances are that the crappy speaker will let you know if there is too much or not enough music.
