Lazlo's Corner

You would think I'd be taking a break after the last month of benefit shows for the Spondylitis Association Of America, but my dedication to promoting good music (and worthy causes) can't be stopped.

I'm already hard at work on some new ideas.

The first I am considering is doing a semi-regular (monthly/bi-monthly) free downloadable New Music Sampler. Sort of an offshoot of our new music program.

Doing this will take a lot of work, but I'm willing to do it if people are going to download it (and if I can get permission from musicians to use their songs).

I put a poll up on Twitter (@blowupradio). Let me know your thoughts there or via e-mail.
