We're been banging on about this for a while now but for those who have been stuck at home stuck in the endless cycle of an Anime binge watch, we can now tell you that Asian Pop Radio is returning to the Royal Exhibition Building this weekend as official radio partner to the Animaga Expo 2018.
Our first partnership was in 2017 and it was a huge success for both the organisers of the event and our Asian Pop Radio team. This time round we will take control of the second stage and our emcee's will be hosting all weekend long.
