Blast From The Past (talk/music: on hiatus)

Welcome to Blast From The Past. This podcast was created by Erk & his mum Judy in February 2009 after Judy caught the podcasting bug from Erk. The show started as a “back in my day” show where Erk & Judy would talk about the past & compare it to the current day. Over time, the format matured & it became more of a talk/variety program.

 

In November 2011, Judy lost the passion & for personal issues decided not to podcast any more. She may decide to come back in future but until then, the show is on an extended hiatus. Over time, this section of the website will be updated. There will be no iTunes link for the moment.
