Subject: Who's Ready for Episode 121?
The latest Episode of ASO Radio was posted this year... on January 1, six months ago. While I realize that having Episodes appear twice per year on a biannual basis sounds like a neat idea, I think you guys want something more.

In that spirit, expect a new Episode of ASO Radio on Sunday, July 6. Originally I planned to have #121 appear on June 29, but due to a large number of due college assignments and exams I was unable to delivery new content this week.

We will have some changes in store for you listeners. For starters, the news and fan mail segments will be transposed, with the fan mail at the beginning of the show and the news in the middle to provide a break from the reviews. The fan mail and community stuff will be done at the start of the program to emphasize our stronger focus on building a more tight-knit community group around ASO Radio. With that in mind, please send in photographs of your impressive anime/manga collections and collectibles. We'll feature them on the show and in our Artist Alley if your pics are impressive enough to wow us.

We will also be running a summer-long contest. Everyone who writes a review of ASO Radio on iTunes will be automatically entered into our contest. One lucky random winner will be drawn from all eligible entries on September 7 and announced on the following Episode. The prize will be the winner's choice of anime or manga box set(s) with a retail value up to $50.00 USD. The period for entries will begin with Episode #121 and will end on August 31 @ midnight (24:00 hours UTC-600).

After we air Episode #121 we will begin a redesign of the ASO Radio Web site. While the current site is fine it is too difficult to quickly find what someone is seeking and there is too much blank ( " negative " ) space which is only taking up room.

Link1986, keeper of the MacRobo V, hopes to have a prototype video version of ASO Radio produced this summer. Right now details of this project are hush-hush, but if anything develops we'll be sure to let you know.

Please look forward to a great summer with ASO Radio!
