A State of Trance
A State of Trance (ASOT in short) is one of the most popular radio shows in the world and has won several awards such as the Award for Best Radio Show during the annual Miami Winter Music Conference in both 2005 & 2006. Mixed and produced by the #1 DJ in the world - Armin van Buuren - it gained a good reputation especially in the Trance Community and is now - without any doubt - the most influential and best known Trance Radio Show in the world. More than 240 episodes of the weekly 'A State of Trance' have been broadcasted up to now. "Live" shows as well as guest mixes are quite rare, it is in fact a one-man-show by Armin van Buuren, recorded and mixed in his very own studio.
A State of Trance started in May 2001 on ID&T radio in The Netherlands, but became a truly world-wide show in March 2005 when it started to be broadcasted by radio stations across the whole world (India, Jordan, Australia, USA, Netherlands...). At the moment of this TMB entry the show is broadcasted by more than 20 FM radio stations worldwide. However, most recognized by fans of the show is the internet broadcast by Digitally Imported as this allows the fan community to be part of the worldwide ASOT experience without physical boarders between all the countries. "A State of Trance" is broadcasted by many radio stations on Thursday evenings, for example (7pm - 9pm UTC) on Digitally Imported.
