media rotation policies and notifications

I'll start with the easy stuff.  My client wants a media rotation policy for week days (8 tapes), week ends (4 tapes), month end (11 tapes), and year end (5 tapes).  This I can setup without much problem.  The hard part is that he wants to receive an email every day by the system telling him which exact tape need to be put into the drive.  I've never seen anything that can do this, but hopefully someone can help me with this.  He insists that at "his old company" it worked like this.  Any input is appreciated.

Thanks!

You can set up alerts and notification for the completed jobs which contain information about alll the media used by that particluar job
alternatively you can set up a policy which can contain 2 templates
One that will run the job and the other to Export the tapes from the LIBRARY>
please refer to page 527 of the ADMIN GUIDE for more information on setting up Alerts and Notification
and 251 for Eporting media

Regarding exporting tapes from the library, this is just a single drive, and not a library unit.  So that does not apply.  I am aware of how to setup a notification about the tape used, but still can't find a way to have it ask for a specific tape.  I will also accept an knowledgeable answer that it cannot be done, as long as it is known without a doubt that this is not a feature of BE11d.
