Lazlo's Corner

In working on my project of converting my cassette collection to MP3, I have come across a lot of amazing demo tapes from the local music scene's past (you may have seen me tweet about some on @BlowUpRadio).

But it has made me realize that there are so many more demo tapes (and CDs) that have probably become lost to the ages because they pre-date youtube/Bandcamp/Itunes/Spotify/Soundcloud...well, you get the idea.

I really want to build a public archive of these recordings (and get more from others who have this stuff sitting in their attics, dens, etc.), but have not figured out a way to do it, especially since tracking down the royalty holders on these demos tapes would likely be a fully time job of its own.

If anyone has any good ideas for how to undertake this, send them along.

If I could get my internet station back I could do a retro show and play these tunes for you and let the royalty companies try to figure out how to get the royalties to the songwriters, but that looks like a long shot at this point.

In the meantime, I am forced to keep this music to myself, which goes against everything I've been doing with
