Erk FM: International 469 – Brazilians Are Cool

by Shawn

Welcome to episode 469 of Erk FM: International. To celebrate the World Cup, music supplier Jamendo had a sample playlist. Presumably the tunes are from Brazil as that country hosted the World Cup. Erk has not been to Brazil or South America but occasionally likes playing music from the region.

Erk FM: Metal Monday 147 – Experimentally Mobile

by Shawn

Welcome to episode 147 of Erk FM: Metal Monday. Erk's in the mood for doing something different and experimenting in case he needs to do this show on the road. Featuring tracks he has on his phone, Erk takes a look back at some of the bands he has featured on previous episodes.

  Song list:

Erk Pod 499 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 41 (San Francisco)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 499. Erk expected to be in San Luis Obispo seeing his good friends Shawno & Jen by this point & be waking up in California. Well, Erk did wake up in California - but bunkered down at the San Francisco airport was not part of the plan.   The plan on the previous episode was to fly Walla Walla - Seattle - Salt Lake City - Phoenix - San Luis Obispo. But due to a faulty de-icing truck, this did not happen. Instead, there was a shuttle van ride over to the Tricity airport, a massive wait there, a flight to Seattle & another layover before a late night flight into San Francisco. Napping at the airport, Erk had to get another plane to San Luis Obispo. Not the plan Erk had in mind!   In case anyone is actually reading this, the next episode is Erk Pod episode 500 & it will be a lllllooooonnnngggg one!

Erk FM: Australia 468 – Experimenting Mobilely

by Shawn

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 468. On this episode, Erk decides to record the episode remotely only using his iPhone and an application called Boss Jock Studio as an experiment. As a result, the show will sound different than usual. All of the artists have appeared on Erk FM: Australia before, some more recently than others. Artists include Acid Nymph, Aimee Francis, Awaken Solace, Domino, Heaven The AxeRise Of Avernus and Vanity Riots. Erk also wanted to play Red Bee and Frankenbok but that plan did not work - Erk later figured out why. 

Erk Pod 498 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle (Day 40 – A Long Travel Day)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 498. Leaving one regional American city (Walla Walla, Washington) and heading to another (San Luis Obispo, California), Erk knew that he would not be getting a direct flight between the two cities even though they are on the same coast. During planning of the trip, Erk looked at flying via San Francisco (too expensive) or Los Angeles (did it last year) before settling on a plan. With cost, time & frequent flyer points/credits in his mind, Erk finally settled on a route that while long, satisfied him in terms of sights, cost & miles. Leaving Walla Walla, Erk would first fly to Seattle on Alaska Airlines. He would then fly Seattle - Salt Lake City - Phoenix on Acme then conclude on US Airways Phoenix - San Luis Obispo.   Nice plan, Erk. One faulty deicing truck changed all that.

Erk Pod 497 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle (A Weekend In Walla Walla)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 497. Erk spends the weekend in regional Walla Walla, Washington. So where exactly is Walla Walla & why is Erk there out of all of the places that he could have went to in America?   As Erk finds out, Walla Walla is about an hour's flying time in a turbo-prop driven plane. Depending on which direction you decide to go, you can comfortably drive to either Seattle, Portland, Spokane or Boise in a few hours. It is a very short drive from the Washington/Oregon state border.   Erk is in Walla Walla not for the location (although he comes to like it) but (once again) the company. Erk meets up with music podcasting colleague Justin Wayne from The Justin Wayne Show, makes a snow angel, throws snowballs & sees streets that Mr Plow hasn't visited for days.

Erk Pod 495 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 37 (Chicago – Minneapolis/St Paul)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 495. It is time for Erk to start the more regional part of his US trip. He is heading from Chicago to Walla Walla, Washington. When booking the trip, Erk knew that he would have to connect to a smaller plane in Seattle to get to Walla Walla but did not know that he would not be able to fly directly from Chicago to Seattle via Acme. Instead, he has to fly elsewhere from Chicago - to Minneapolis/St Paul. Erk is not impressed by this but he is well impressed with the airport during the brief connection. This episode covers the first half of Erk's long travel day enroute to Walla Walla. It was very cold on Erk's arrival!

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 494 recorded in very cold & snowy Chicago during what is day 36 of Erk's trip. As he says often during the snow covered parts of his trip, Erk doesn't have to do any of the boring, mundane, usual stuff to survive in the snow. He goes outside for a while, walks around, looks for falling ice (and falling ice signs) and when he gets too cold, he goes inside for a while.

Erk Pod 492 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 34 (Chicago)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 492. On this episode, Erk has arrived into Chicago. Not knowing if he would even end up in Chicago, he did not book any accommodation until after arrival. The first thing on the agenda was deciding if the hotel should be close to the airport at Midway (where Erk would be flying in & out of) or downtown. Downtown is where most of the action would be so the search started downtown for a suitable location.   Over the next few days, Erk would hear from the locals that this winter was the worst one that the city had suffered for a while & even on his arrival, Erk believed it. Several people questioned why Erk would even bother with a Chicago winter but it is part of the adventure!

Erk FM: International 463 – Oh Canadia

by Shawn

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 463 which is focused on 3 Canadian artists courtesy of AirPlay Direct. By the time you are hearing this episode, Erk should be back in Australia from his second overseas trip of the year which included a visit to the People's Republic of Canadia (hello, Shawno!). 

        Firstly is award-winning Americana (shouldn't that be Canadiana???) artist Matt Andersen. He is a multiple Maple Blues award winner amongst other awards inside & outside his homeland. He has just completed another North American tour.

    Song list:

  • I Lost My Way

She has previously been nominated for an Canadian Folk Music Award in 2010 as an emerging artist. Having left a heavy touring schedule in 2012,  Jadea had to slow down from life on the road. After doing so, she recorded many acoustic songs which set her on her way down another path,

  Song list:

  • Wild West Rain
  • Powell River
  • Lone Wolf
  • Mary Don't Go
  • You Had Me
  • Saintly Stare
  • Hour North

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 490. After sailing on 70000 Tons of Metal, Erk flies out of Miami and spends the weekend in Atlanta. Meeting up again with Captain Jeff from the Airline Pilot Guy podcast, together we got to explore the city - or at least the outside of some buildings. Coke Centre? KLOSED. CNN Tour? KLOSED. Aquarium? KLOSED. Thankfully there was a nice place to eat that was open as well as Atlanta's tallest building. Still, the company was awesome & Erk was able to give Jeff an impromptu train driving lesson. In addition, Erk was able to observe Jeff observing what it is like to see a plane land when normally he is on his side of the cockpit door.   Captain Jeff-less on Sunday, Erk explores Atlanta, tours the CNN Centre (highly recommended!) & even tries his hand at newsreading. He spends the evening at Hooters watching the NFL Superbowl. It was a short time but a good time in Atlanta.
