Canadian Music Festival Preparations Put On Hold After Birds’ Nest Is Found

A 10-day music festival in Canada was suspended after a birds’ nest with four eggs was discovered where the main stage is to be erected, The Globe and Mail reported. A security guard is keeping watch over a nest. Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario, belongs to a pair of killdeer, a protected species. The show will go on once Environment Canada decides whether to accept a proposal to move the nest. The festival which will includes performances by the Dave Matthews Band and Foo Fighters among several  other  acts, (national, and local talent) says CTV News

Another option is to incubate the eggs according to CTV News. In the 19th century for example, when egg collections were a popular (and legal) hobby, bird nests were sometimes collected, and some of these were later bequeathed to the Canadian Museum of Nature. Over the years, the museum put together a representative collection of nests for reference. This material also helps document the diversity of nesting habits among different species. In the meantime, a security guard has been assigned to protect the nest and the eggs. The security guard says this is quit a big conundrum for the Bluesfest organizers as far as dollars are concerned but hay, I’m getting paid regardless.

The Next “LA Invasion” is Poised To Make A Return Any Moment Now!

Back in the early 1980’s, the radio stations across the United States, slow but surely, were being taken over by a bunch of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal bands from Southern California(primarily L.A & Hollywood). Bands like Motley Crue, Ratt, Dokken, W.A.S.P., and Armored Saint, just to name a few. This was what would be called the “LA Invasion”.

Between each bands own unique sounds, and their own unique look(image); along with this new channel on cable tv, MTV(Music Television); it was a match made in heaven for fans that wanted something new and exciting. And what a concept it was, having some form of “vision” to go along with all this great music coming out of SoCal.

Throughout most of that decade, a great amount of the bands good looks, swagger, high rotation on the radio, videos, etc.; the LA Invasion last most of the 80’s. More bands came out, but seemed to be watered down versions of the bands that started the movement.

But, just like all things come to an end; they also go in cycles and get rehashed.

For the past 10 years now, I have been around the music scene in SoCal. Whether it be a booker/promoter, internet DJ, or hosting a webshow covering the scene; there’s currently more talented bands and musicians here now, than there has ever been before. And it is just awesome what’s going on out here lately……it’s the beginning of the next LA Invasion!

With bands like Stonebreed, Motor Gun Hotel, Brain Dead, Void Vator, C4OC, Big Rig Dollhouse, Revmatix, Ninth Circle, Valor & Vengeance,  just to name a few; the Invasion is posed to erupt and take over the world once again. That is my prediction.

It’s been no big secret that LA/Hollywood has been a magnet for bands, musicians, and all types of talented people since entertainment started. And still is til this very day. Talented people individuals are still moving out here, and there’s been a ton spawn of these creative people that are even more talented than their parents!

I’m very privileged to be hearing and seeing a lot of this take place, and even more fortunate to be playing a lot of these unsigned bands that are just chomping at the bit to Rock and seduce your Metal loving ears.

My name is Mike Cummings, and I’m a Booker/Promoter with The House of Metal, a DJ on www.c4ocradio.com. and co-created “Bang Your Head with Mike & Ed!” I am on live every Tuesday night on www.c4ocradio.com’s show “House of Metal Radio Show”. The show airs between 8pm – 10pm(PST) . I play THEE very best Hard Rock and Heavy Metal coming out of Southern California. It’s my mission to usher in the next LA Invasion. Be prepared. It’s coming!



The Fyre Festival gets docuseries on what went wrong airing on Hulu

By: Ron DCMDJ Johnson


Greetings people of Earth!


Hulu has picked up a docuseries

about the Fyre Festival


Have you ever planned a huge event in the middle of nowhere and made tons of promises only to deliver on none of it? That’s what happens in this yet untitled series set to air in 2019 that will cover all of the events leading up to and surrounding the event.



The event was to take place on a private Bahama island and give you a one of a kind luxury experience that would include Ja Rule  as a developer with a  25-year-old entrepreneur Billy McFarland conducting this event. Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid were listed to be promote the event. Just days before the event it became apparent that it had been sorely misrepresented and very unlikely that any of it was going to happen at all. Keep an eye out for this intriguing docuseries when it hits Hulu next year. Especially if you are an up and coming or established promoter you might learn or cringe from watching what happens when a show goes wrong on a grand scale. McFarland is facing wire fraud charges for the selling of tickets online and not delivering. I’ve seen this before and I hope not to see it again. Both fans and artist lose when this happens.


**BREAKING NEWS UPDATE** Billy McFarland, founder of the Fyre Festival, has plead guilty to two counts of wire fraud which may get him 20 years each count.


Please share and leave your comments. The listeners, viewers and readers of this page make it happen.


Thanks to all of the people of Earth!




C4OC Band Review, Live is Loud!

We are lucky enough that we live in an area that has so many great live venues. Most of them are so reasonably priced  that you can pretty much go see a band every weekend at any number of venues. One of my favorite bands to go see live is c4OC. People might think I’m a little bit biased on this issue since my husband and my father-in-law are both in this band and, of course, a  wonderful bass player that adds  the Doom we needed. But that’s also why I’m the perfect person to review them,   I know them so well, that I hear every mistake. I have to say they do not make many and when they do they roll with it so well one would never know. The reason they’re a great band live it’s not just the musical Talent. They visually put on a good show as well, and are engaging with the audience. For me c4OC  is one of the best bands to see live in the Orange County area.  Have you seen them yet?  I highly suggest  that you keep an eye on both the c4ocradio.com site ,as well as the band site, for any upcoming shows they may have. Big Momma will be there!!!




C4 OC Radio Featured Artist: STONEBREED

By: Ron DCMDJ Johnson

Greetings people of Earth!


               As you know we here at C4 OC radio get thousands of bands material sent to us and we try to play as many as we can. Even fewer get to be a featured artist. This is the first in a series of bands that will be a featured artist. Which band is next will be determined by listener comments, the top ten list and of course my own personal preference. I picked STONEBREED because they stood out for me and no other reason. I play three songs from their new album Heart of Stone. Please enjoy this video and like, comment, share and subscribe to the Youtube channel.


             Next time I may listen to you so post your comments and let me know who you think should be featured. All bands must be original music. If you have music that you would like to have played on c4ocradio.com send your music in mp3 format to c4ocradio@gmail.com


With the support of our listeners, all things are possible.

Thank you!
