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.
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:
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. One thing that Erk & Judy had never been afraid of while podcasting was having unusual themes.
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.
Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 477. On this episode, Erk takes some suggestions from music supplier Jamendo. There's a good mix of music on this episode for you to enjoy from around the world including from America, France, Germany & Russia.
Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 475. On this episode, Erk's original plan was to feature a variety of bands from a variety of genres courtesy of AirPlay Direct. This changed, however, after hearing the first couple of artists. There is also has an announcement for Erk to make.
Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 473. This week, one of Erk's favourite comedians died unexpectedly, Robin Williams. While there's nothing that he did that could be played on Erk FM, Erk thought that he would play some humourous songs instead.
Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 471. Erk is back after his computer fail last week. Erk decides that he needs to have a laugh and relax after the events of the last few weeks and ease back into things. Off to the Randomizer 5000 with music supplied by Jamendo.
Due to a suspected hard drive failure at Channel Erk HQ, there will be no episodes of Erk FM this week (July 28 – August 1).
