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...

Erk FM: Australia 482 – Remembering Bigsound

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 482. This encore episode sees the beginning of a range of content from the Bigsound 2013 conference/showcase in Brisbane a year ago. Bringing together a range of musicians & music industry people from Australia and beyond), it was an exciting conference for Erk FM. It was a great way to meet people that I have only spoken to online and/or heard online via this podcast. There were days of conference sessions that I did not attend as well as 2 nights of live music across 12 venues in Fortitude Valley.

  As you might be...

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. One thing that Erk & Judy had never been afraid of while podcasting was having unusual themes.

Erk FM: Australia 480 – Blasting Back

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia 480. On this episode, Erk decides to go for a blast from the past - namely via his mum. Erk's mum Judy used to podcast with him on a talk show called Blast From The Past. She later decided to do a music show, Judy's Blast FM. So Erk decides to replay an episode of Judy's Blast FM featuring a series of artists primarily from Sydney.

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.

Erk FM Metal Monday 152 – Whiplash Revisited (Melbourne)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Metal Monday episode 152. On last week's episode, Erk re-presented the opening night of the 2012 Whiplash Tour in Sydney. Between that episode (originally recorded as Erk FM: Metal Monday episode 58) and Melbourne, the final stop of the tour, a lot happened. There was a lot of awesome music and friendship but also some behind the scenes action which saw a change of promoter mid-tour. The Melbourne show was very emotional for the bands who had done a major part of the tour. This episode was originally recorded as Erk FM: Metal Monday episode...
