It is May 1st, 2018 and I am proud to announce that The NEW Anime Blast Radio - The BLAST has gone live!
So what is new and different?
First, and most importantly, I am once again healthy and able to dedicate a substantial amount of time into making the station great again. It is my full time hobby beyond my need for playing computer games.
There will be more frequent new song additions. I will be actively getting those new releases in rotation as soon as I can buy them. I will also be adding missing older songs as I come across them and can get them. Eventually I will be adding a was for listeners to notify me of songs they want to hear on the station that they currently don't hear. I will do my best to procure them and add them. Some older songs may be more difficult as they may be out of print, but I will do my best.
The website has a complete makeover. It is now more responsive and works great on mobile devices. I am taking great effort to make sure the site looks and functions on mobile devices. And a new logo is coming.
Dedicated apps are gone. The previous apps I had made for the station are no longer available. I got frustrated with them (too many advertisements). The last thing I want to do is make a station full of advertisements. This includes the website. However, this station is not able to be in operation for free. So, I will be actively asking for donations. You will see information on the website concerning monthly expenses with a way for you to donate to help with those costs.
I have set up a new Facebook page and Twitter account (@blast_anime). Please follow and like Anime Blast Radio - The BLAST and spread to word of the station relaunch. This may be an English based station, but anime music is loved around the world.
I am planning to launch a live show. Yes, I will be going live once again a three year hiatus. I still suck at pronouncing the song names and some of the artists, but it makes it fun. Look for a live show within the next 60 days. Also, if anyone would like to be considered to have their own show on Anime Blast Radio - The BLAST, get in touch with me and we can discuss things.
Look over the new website. Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. Anime Blast Radio - The BLAST is back and better than ever!
