Lazlo's Corner

I know I've said this before, but it always bears repeating (and you'll understand why later in the column). has never been intended to be just my opinion and taste in music. The plan has always been for this site to be not just for the local music community, but also including input from the community. There are times where this has come to pass, and wonderful people have written reviews and done shows on, and I would love to see that happen once again.

So yesterday I tweeted this:

I still want @BlowUpRadio to be more of a NJ Music community based website, but to do so I need your help. Anyone want to write, DJ, etc?

And was happy when three different people expressed an interest.

One of them, Dennis King (aka Son Of Dov), has already started his new recommendations column, "Outliers & Cold Fires", on

Hopefully the other two people will begin doing stuff on the site shortly.

But four people (including myself), is but a small community.

I know this site can be so much better with a bigger community supporting good music in their own way!

I would love to have you be a part of this community, doing recommendations/reviews, programming your own show, or doing something else to support the music scene that maybe I haven't thought of yet.

If you are interested, please contact me.

If we build a bigger community the whole scene wins!
