2. MESSAGE FROM LAZLO
Ah, what a week. It was a week that saw Bruce Springsteen bring national attention to Asbury Park, and at the same time the Asbury Music Awards (which seem to be plagued with problems this year), that was supposed to happen today, get postponed until later this month (see our news page for more info). It was also a week where MTV2 spotlighted bands from the Garden State on a video special called, "It Came from Jersey".
But the big news as far as the NJ music scene is concerned is that blowupradio.com got a really nice mention in the Star Ledger. The article was about the (previously mentioned here) new royalty rate and how it is forcing many Internet stations off-line.
Here is what was written regarding blowupradio.com:
New Brunswick's Val Emmich is grateful to BlowUpRadio.com, a showcase for Jersey talent started by former WDHA-FM DJ Larry "Lazlo" Seltzer when he tired of playing "Freebird" on hit-driven radio.
"I just want to spread my music through any avenue and channel I can," said Emmich, 22.
I must admit, that I talked to the author for 20 minutes or so abou the state of Internet Radio and gave facts, figures and soundbite statements which I would have preferred been used in the article, but anything that drives traffic to blowupradio.com will hopefully help the local music scene by getting more people inspired to check out a local live show. For those interested, you can read the entire article here.
In other news, blowupradio.com is in the early stages of working on a new talk/music show. Also in the months to come is a show hosted by a well-known NJ local scene legend and the return of @ the Show and Artist Amp Live.
