metal scene tagged posts
Well i started my own! And it was not easy. I had the idea about 2 years ago. See i have been in the local music business for 25 yrs. in the Orange and L.A. County scene, I have grown to know a quite a few great musicians and even more great people that come and support the scene. I remember i was sitting at the House of metal located at 604 e. Dyer rd. in Santa Ana ca. it was a tribute night, Tons of killer tribute bands. Perfect strangers Tribute to Deep Purple was playing “child in time”. I had thought to myself “wouldn’t it be cool to have a playlist with all these talented artists!” Then I thought about all the great original bands and artists, and how awesome it would be if people could and would have another place to listen to unheard music. So the next question was, how do i acquire all this music? Going on every Band camp, Reverbnation, and/or CD Baby site and troll for bands! Hmm seems like a tedious journey. There must be an easier way. At the end of the night i was saying my good byes to Mike and Ed, the promoters for the House of metal show that night, I mention to they my thoughts to them. Mike says “You will need a lot of music”. And stays “ONLY THE BEST BANDS!!” So i says to them do you want to start a radio site where all the people could listen 24/7, anytime they wanted? We are in!!! Hell yeah!! And with a little knowledge and a lot of YouTube i got it all together for and hear i am…
But you had believe me, you hill have you share of ups and downs but if you can make your way through that, You will have a platform that you can promote you local music or National act and make your own playlist to broadcast to the world.
I have loved The Doctors of the Earth CD, Respect the Laws, since I first heard it. I honestly can’t remember when it was but it was one of the jewels amongst the stacks of Cds that the promoters for The House of Metal and C4ocradio.net DJs, Mike and Ed brought over. Right off the bat i was blown away by Track 1, the hard hitting, haunting, Mama Hey; my personal favorite and now officially my theme song. I was recently blessed to not only meet these talented,wonderful guys ( when interviewed at the C4oc Radio Compound)… but I also scored a signed copy of the CD!! Powerful vocals, shredding guitar and an absolutely thumping rhythm section, they kick ass ! That is why they get my first spot on “Who’s Playing in your Car?” Check them out and once again, hear for yourselves… I have never been disappointed , I bet you won’t be either!!!
