Lazlo's Corner

"Say so long to the worst year of our lives... say hello to the best year of our lives" - from Joshua Van Ness's "Happy New Year" (stream it here:

2023! Let's do this!

The last few years have been a rollercoaster of ups & downs for me (and pretty much everyone I'm sure), but I have high hopes for 2023... that's my story and I'm sticking to it... for at least a few days... ah the heck with it... 2023 will probably be a rollercoaster too, hopefully more ups than downs.

The one true constant is will be here and so will tons of amazing music, and I have all of you to thank for that.

THANK YOU to the artists for making the incredible music that makes doing this station both possible and a joy!

THANK YOU to the listeners for enjoying this little station built around what I think is Good Music!


And a reminder, is preparing for its second annual benefit webathon for National Foundation For Transplants (the NFT that has value):

The NFT saves lives by removing financial barriers that delay or prevent organ transplantation. One of the many people they have helped is Catherine Wacha (who is working with me to put this benefit together), who received a kidney transplant, that was necessary due to having Lupus.

The webathon will take place on March 4th & 5th, 2023

Like our other webathons, the plan is to do a compilation of previously unreleased original songs, and a webathon where musicians perform live (due to the ongoing pandemic performances will be done remotely via Skype or pre-recorded)

There are 2 ways for musicians to be involved:

1. I am looking for previously unreleased original songs (which can include acoustic or live versions of previously released songs, remixes, etc.) for this year's compilation. I ask that all songs be original (no covers) and that they remain exclusive to the compilation until June 1st, 2023 (3 months from the webathon). The songs will be due by February 17th, but if you have something ready, please feel free to send it now. Otherwise, if you think you can have something for the compilation, please let me know.

2. Looking for musicians to perform a 30 minute live set, via Skype (as with all our broadcasts, the video is for us to see each other, only the audio will be broadcast on air), for our webathon. We will definitely be broadcasting on March 4th, if enough people are interested we will do March 4th & March 5th. If you prefer, you can pre-record a set, but please make this an exclusive set (i.e. not a set livestreamed already)

From Catherine Wacha:
"The benefit we did in 2022 was a huge success and the folks at National Foundation for Transplants were incredibly grateful for not only the money we raised but the awareness we all brought to the organization. It is an honor to be able to help them out again."

If you are interested in being part of the webathon or have any questions, please let me know.
