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.
