Lazlo's Corner

Thank you everyone for your well wishes as celebrates its 18th anniversary!

18 years seems like a long time, but it feels like it went by so quickly.

There is so much we have been able to do in that time to try to help the local music scene, as well as some good causes (see below about our New Year's Eve benefit broadcast), but we want to hear from you.

What can do (or do better) to continue to support local music over the next 18 years?

Please let me know your thoughts.
