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.

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 519. Erk is midway through his stay in Singapore & is enjoying exploring the city. A good way of exploring a city initially is on foot & Erk has certainly been doing a lot of walking. There's certainly more to see & do than Erk initially thought!

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 518. Erk is starting to get into some sort of routine. Get up, go for a walk around, have some lunch, walk around some more, maybe catch a couple of trains.

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 able to imagine, I was in podcasting & music heaven. However, I was (obviously) unable to cover the entire event because there's only so much one person (me!) can do.

  On this week's episode, there are interviews conducted over 2 days of various artists. Over 2 days, there were over 250 interviews conducted by various media & new media outlets. A very big thank you to Stephen, Andrew & Sarah from SGC Media for arranging these interviews & my media accreditation. Big thank you also to my media/band liaison people Laura & Maddi for making sure that the bands & I were...

Erk Pod 517 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 51 (Singapore)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 517. Erk has just arrived in Singapore. Out of all the places that Erk has gone on this trip, Singapore is the place that Erk has least looked forward to. For one reason, it is a step closer to the end of the trip. Second, Singapore has been a country & a city that Erk has had no special reason to visit or no overwhelming desire to visit before now. Thirdly, Erk has to fly via Singapore to/from Japan rather than direct because his airline of choice does not fly there (Australia - Japan) directly. Regardless, Erk has selected to spend a week in Singapore so let's see what happens!

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.

  Song list:

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 Pod 516 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 50 (Farewell Japan)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 516. With everything on Erk's short list of must-do things in Japan ticked & some snow adventures for good measure, Erk is preparing to leave Japan. Rest assured, Erk will be back again in the future after a couple of short visits. Next time, the visit will be longer. One thing that Erk has noticed is that he takes a couple of days to get used to Japan & by the time he starts to feel comfortable, it is time to go. Next time will be longer, promise.   Erk's next stop is Singapore - it is also Asian but very different to Japan (or so Erk hears!).

Erk Pod 515 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 50 (Railway Museum)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 515. Erk is visiting The Railway Museum on the outskirts of Tokyo. There is something for all ages ranging from train simulators, train displays, , model trains, tours & a lot more. If you love trains & go to Japan, you must visit the museum. If you want to feel what it is like to be a train driver like Erk, try out the simulators (there is a charge for the steam train simulator but the subway & Shinkansen simulators are free). It is also a good place to buy train related merchandise.   Can't speak Japanese? No need to worry - you can get by without it. If you want to go more indepth, there are English guides & maps available. 

Erk Pod 514 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 50 (Nippori)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 514. It is Erk's final day in Japan and he is trying to fit as much into the day as he can. The initial plan was to check out of the hotel, go to the Railway Museum, back to the hotel & pick up the bags & then go to the airport. Instead of that, Erk changed his mind (not for the first time) but it worked out a lot better.   Check out of the hotel, catch a couple of trains to Nippori. At Nippori station, there are luggage lockers for Erk to put his bags. From there, he can go to the Railway Museum, return to Nippori, collect his bags & then get the express train to the airport. Good plan, Erk! 

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.

by Erk

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.

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 478. On this episode, Erk continues his musical journey around Australia courtesy of AirPlay Direct.

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 512. After a short time in Aomori, it is time for Erk to return to Tokyo. It is warmer back at Shin-Aomori station as Erk does a bit of train spotting & warms up after the freezing snowy conditions, conditions he was not dressed for. Most of the return trip was in darkness which did not prevent the train from running at high speed. Erk also took the chance to have a bit of a snooze.

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 511. Erk has arrived in Shin-Aomori north of Tokyo. Erk knew he was north of Tokyo but did not know until he asked the local tourist bureau that he in fact 713 rail kilometres north of Tokyo. Unlike the milder weather in Tokyo where snow is no longer falling, it is snowing hard in Shin-Aomori & nearby Aomori which is the downtown area served by the Shinkansens. One thing that Erk soon noticed way north of Tokyo was that English has basically disappeared. Erk explores the small local train system and the downtown area.

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 510. Erk has made it to the main Tokyo Shinkansen platforms and has purchased a ticket to Shin-Aomori. He decided which train to ride based on some articles on the interweb which showed that this line is the fastest Shinkansen line in Japan. Erk is mainly going for the train ride rather than the destination.

Erk Pod 509 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 48 (Tokyo)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 509. Erk's original plan for today was to go to The Railway Museum but it was KLOSED. Lucky for Erk, he did his research first & did not go to the museum to find that out. Instead, Erk decides to go ride on a morning peak hour train on the Yamanote line to the main Tokyo station. It is a really interesting experience, especially for someone who does not normally commute to train in the morning peak hour back home.

Erk FM: Australia 476 – Western Australian Sampler

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 476. Erk continues his musical trip around Australia courtesy of AirPlay Direct, this time visiting Perth & Western Australia. Many local bands have issues traveling outside of Western Australia due to distance while many bands do not visit Western Australia for the same reason. It is so far between the west coast and the east coast of Australia that it is quicker and easier to fly to New Zealand from the east coast of Australia rather than fly to Western Australia. It has been said that Western Australia feels like another country due to the distances involved.

In fact, Tokyo is recovering after the highest amount of snow in Tokyo for around 40 years a few days prior to Erk's arrival. Much like in 2011, Erk is amazed by what is going on around him although he is a little more prepared this time.
