Erk FM: International is a music podcast featuring various artists from countries apart from Erk’s own – Australia. Available every Wednesday from December 2011, it is a companion podcast to Erk FM: Australia released on Fridays. Both podcasts were formerly on Fridays from January 2009 until November 2011 as Erk FM. This approach allows Erk to focus on Australian music in dedicated episodes while also allowing more exposure for overseas artists.

 

In 2012 & beyond, Erk FM: International episodes are numbered with odd numbered episodes & Erk FM: Australia episodes are numbered with even numbered episodes.

Erk FM: International 483 – Sitting On The Couch

by Erk

Continuing back at looking back at music across Channel Erk, Erk features an alternative online music festival called Couch X Couchwest. 

    While CXCW requires video to be filmed from anywhere that isn't a stage, there are some tracks on this episode that have been recorded in a studio environment. Some of the songs on this episode, however, are played directly from the artist's CXCW video submission.   You can see many videos that have been created for CXCW plus a lot more about the World's Best Online Music Festival at the official CXCW website.   Thank you to the CXCW team for involving me in the festival this year & helping me to promote this show while I am promoting the festival.   This episode starts with a couple of new submissions by artists that have appeared on Erk FM before. Then various artists who won CXCW awards are featured.

  Song submissions:



CXCW Award Winners included the following artists. All songs were as submitted to CXCW. Congratulations to all of the bands who participated in CXCW! While some of the categories are light hearted, that is part of CXCW! Selected winners & honorable mentions as determined by the CXCW Staff were:


Erk FM: International 481 – Blasting Back To Elephants

by Erk

Welcome to episode 481 of Erk FM: International. Erk continues his look back at previous music on Channel Erk. Today, he selects episode 58 of Judy's Blast FM. On that week, Judy presents elephant songs - if you listened to Blast From The Past, you'll know how much Judy love elephants. Most music is supplied on this episode by the Podsafe Music Network.

Erk FM: International 479 – Blasting Back To September

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 479. Erk decides to have a look back at a September themed episode of Judy's Blast FM from September 2009. Judy (Erk's mum) used to podcast with Erk on a talk show called Blast From The Past before starting her own music show Judy's Blast FM. A theme of the show was her discovering (as Erk would say) that there is more to music than country and/or western.
