Erk FM 26 – Feedback & Rewind






Photo – Erk hanging out in SLO’s Bubblegum Alley with the 2 best feedback givers on Erk FM, Shawno & Jen.



This episode will cover feedback received during Erk’s American trip, some music with a special theme and a couple of Erk’s favourites. Let’s see if you can guess what the theme of the opening 6 tracks are!


Also, this week sees the launch of Channel Erk’s new music podcast – Judy’s Blast FM! My mum Judy not only co-hosts talk based show “Blast From The Past” with me but now she is picking the music and presenting her own show as she discovers modern music! As always, Erk FM is released on Fridays (Australian time), Blast From The Past on Saturdays and now Judy’s Blast FM on Sundays!   Music courtesy of Ariel Pubicity & the Podsafe Music Network.

    Was the theme for this episode “Christmas In July,” Erk?

    And I’ve got a voice comment for you in response to your questions about covers. Well, I hope to have one. The Voice Memo app on my iPhone has been made of serious FAIL lately.

    The problem with playing covers on podcasts is that the copyright still lies with the original artists. Technically there are NO covers that are ‘podsafe’. Having said that you will regularly find cover versions on places like PMN and Ariel.

    My rule of thumb is if the covering artist has released their cover on an album they will have bought publishing rights from the original artist. If they have just recorded their own version of a song and put it online, it’s likely they have not bought the rights. I have no problems with playing a cover if the covering artist has bought the rights.

    I’ve no idea what the theme was for this episode.
    I do know I’m skipping over the Christmas song.

    Hey, I actually made it into this feedback episode! Thanks for the Inside My Head shout-out. In answer to your comment, I am still considering if I have the time to do both a talk podcast and a music podcast. Not sure that I do. Now that I’m teaching there is less I can say about what I do at work all day, which wasn’t the case when I was working at The Evil Bookstore. So, maybe Inside My Head will become a music podcast instead? Maybe I will switch off and do one week music or one week talk? I dunno. Still trying to figure that out.

    What did I learn today from Erk Pod FM? Umm… that I should consider doing a music show. ;)

    As far as cover songs…. I dunno. I have played some cover songs on Inside My Head, but I never know for sure if that is the right thing to do or not. Sometimes I don’t even know it’s a cover song when I play it, and I find out later. It’s confusing!

    I love the “Do Si Do” song!!!
