Erk FM: Metal Monday 83 – All American Metal Rocks!!

Welcome to episode 83 of Erk FM: Metal Monday. With the recent & upcoming focus on Australian metal, Erk thought that he would look for some American metal & hard rock after his recent trip. Finding the music on this episode was interesting – Erk was directed down several wormholes while chatting with friends on Facebook & ended up getting caught up with the adventures of Charlie The Unicorn on YouTube. Another interesting thing to note was the difference between the music on the same supplier with the genre of “Metal” & the genre of “Heavy Metal”.

Erk FM: Australia 340 – An Australian Dose Of Insomnia

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 340. On this episode, Erk wanders back through the Insomnia Radio archives to find Australian artists. Some of the artists are well known to Erk while others are new discoveries. The aim of Erk FM is to find new music and present it. An awesome aspect of podcasting is that it is usually non-competive and people are happy to share, Erk included.

Erk Pod 400 – Welcome To New Orleans!

Welcome to episode 400 of Erk Pod – despite what Erk might say during the episode! Erk is arriving into New Orleans from Los Angeles on the Amtrak long distance passenger train Sunset Limited. It was an epic journey across most of America into what is uncharted territory for Erk. During his 2009 trip, Erk planned to visit New Orleans but he found that time was against his original plan so he bypassed “The Big Easy.”

Erk had great first impressions on this Amtrak service due to the excellent on-board service provided by the on-train staff. After only 8 hours in New Orleans, they would head back to Californy (as Shawno would say!) the next morning.

This episode was not intended to be episode 400. Due to the amount of Audioboo recordings made at the start of the trip, episode 400 came along a lot earlier into the trip than expected. The spiritual episode 400 celebrating Erk Pod & the end of the trip with Shawno & Jen from No Market Radio will feature in the relevant part of the trip. […]

Erk Pod 399 – On The Train To Houston

Welcome to episode 399 of Erk Pod (regardless of what Erk might actually say during the episode). Carrying on with his first train trip across America, Erk heads east towards Houston enroute to New Orleans on Amtrak’s Sunset Limited. Erk wasn’t in Houston for very long so he might have to make a longer visit next time. […]

Erk FM: Metal Monday 82 – Rock Chick Central!

Welcome to episode 82 of Erk FM: Metal Monday. Inspired by a conversation with Ro (Dark Compass) and Kimmi (The Metal Deli) and also by a couple of gigs during the week, Erk decided to put together all the so-called rock chicks that he has seen over the last year or so onto the one episode. While it might be the case that these women are fronting rock bands, you don’t need to be fronting a rock or metal band to have the rock chick persona going on.

Erk FM: Australia 338 – Welcome Back To The SGC!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 338. Erk likes it when PR companies help to make creating a playlist really easily. On this episode, Erk features some artists who have been on Erk FM: Australia before with new music to promote. It is also good when the PR company lets Erk know about a band in his home city that he had no idea existed! Now that Erk knows they exist,  you will also know they exist because you are listening.

 

During the week, Erk received a couple of song requests & did not want to say no! He also snuck some metal onto the show but it is very relevant to the song prior!

Erk FM: International 337 – A Little Less Wisdom & A Bit More Catching Up!

Welcome to episode 337 of Erk FM: International. Erk’s been to the dentist (at 2.30, no less!) so we’ll see how well he can talk. The first 2 songs could be described as novelty signs, especially the second song Erk first heard on the Halfway Around The World podcast. The first 2 songs are really topical for a music podcaster. Most of the artists in the rest of the episode are returning artists to Erk FM who have supplied him music on more than one occasion.

Erk FM: Metal Monday 81 – It’s A Long Way To The Top!

Welcome to episode 81 of Erk FM: Metal Monday. Recently, Erk was pleased to be able to see Australian rock legend Dave Evans live as part of an AC/DC tribute show. Dave was the original vocalist of legendary Australian rock band AC/DC & has been rocking in various bands for over 40 years.

At the end of 2010, Erk was lucky enough to be able to interview Dave (originally recorded as Erk FM episode 127). After chatting via social media since the interview, Erk & Dave finally met after the show in April 2013. Not long after this Australian show, Dave headed overseas to Europe for another tour.

Erk presents highlights from the original interview as well as some songs from Dave’s album Sinner. Thank you to Dave for allowing me to play his music. As Erk has often said, Dave Evans doesn’t need Erk’s help to get his music out there but he allows Erk to do so anyway. […]

Starting in Los Angeles, he will take a train to New Orleans. After a week there, he heads to Miami via Washington DC. The first part of that trip is covered on this episode from Los Angeles to El Paso. Onboard the train, Erk has everything he needs within 3 carriages of his sleeping berth including a rather interesting sleeping car attendant called Henry Ford. […]
