Lazlo's Corner

A few quick updates before I get back to preparation for our New Year's Eve Extravaganza.

1. Last week I mentioned that we closed our P.O. Box in Old Bridge. We now have our new P.O. Box opened. henceforth, please send all snail mail, CD's, etc., to:
P.O. Box 191
South Amboy, NJ 08879

2. You can now listen to 2 ways:

Directly thru Live365 (our direct broadcast host):
or thru TuneIn (a site that hosts numerous stations big & small):

3. Beginning this week I've removed the numbers from all our playlists, as a few people misinterpreted the numbers as being a ranking. They were actually just there to signify the order in which the songs were played on air. Sorry for any confusion that caused.

4. I put a poll question on our Twitter account (@BlowUpRadio) a few days ago asking if people were interested in a talk/performance show where several musicians can come by, talk about music, & whatever other topics come up (TV/film/books/news/etc), as well as play a few songs. Many people voted, and 96% want this to be a series. Presuming our New Year's Eve broadcast goes well, I will work on making this show a reality, as it seems like it could be a lot of fun (though it may take several months to actually come together).

5. In the next week or so I will be finalizing the January New Music Sampler. If you would like a song on this free downloadable compilation, contact me.
