Unbelievable! The blog turns one today and I feel realy pumped about this fact. It started as a vision (“maybe it’ll become a real blog for imaging and production”) with this article and is today one of the most read, maybe the most read radio imaging blog in the world. More than 80 000 people have read the articles on this blog in one single year. Today we have more than 3000 people a week sharing ideas, reading the articles, watching the tutorials, checking the screen caps and listening to the stunning audio of the greatest production guys in the world. Thank you for making this blog  the hot spot for radio imaging. Thanks for all the inspiration and efforts.

AND there is tons of great content to come in the near future…. A massive Imaging contest with a jury of hand picked programing legends and radio pros, great interviews, new demos, tutorials and a fantastic X-mas present. For today I want to honor the guys who wrote the most successful posts ever (on this blog) and show the posts to you once again + revitalize our survey, making the blog even more specific and better for you by asking about your preferences considering our posts.

More then 25 years in the Imaging business, multi award wininnng and inspring to an entire generation in Canada and beyond. Not many could tell that about their radio career, John could, but never would, so I do! I met John as the Head of Imaging for Astral Media, while discussing Benztown for some of their stations. Canada has always been great to us as a company and John’s Toronto station was our first international Benztown CHR client ever. After digging into Johns career, I got more and more impressed and wanted to have him badly for an intreview on the blog.  John has wisdom to share for younger imaging guys and producers and is absolutly one of the guys to listen to, if you want to make it in the Imaging world. Thanks for sharing, John and never stop creating magic. Check out the inspiring interview, John’s screencaps + explanations to each of them and the great audio pieces, he sent through. (more…)
