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 445 – Still Recovering From A Unicorn Bite

by Shawn

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 445. Erk is still recovering from his unicorn bite so this is a replay of Erk FM: International episode 279. During the recording of episode 277, Erk was offered some new tracks of a band that he has played previously after being pinged on Twitter. This will lead to Erk giggling like a 13 year old boy (thank you, Randy!)  as well as more tracks from new (to Erk FM) music supplier Road King Entertainment. It's a real mixed bag on this episode with a bit of a southern Texas twang!
