Erk FM: Australia 350 – Digging Deep For Another Milestone

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 350. It is another milestone episode (to Erk at least!!!) but Erk thought he’d do something different. Instead of doing a best of (or as Shawno might say, Erk FM’s Greatest Hits), Erk thought that he would feature bands that he has never played before. Part of this was digging deep into the Insomnia Radio vault. Thank you to all the artists, PR companies, fellow podcasters & the listeners for all their support since this podcast started off in January 2009.

Erk FM: International 349 – 90 Minutes To The Bullet Train!

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 349. On this episode, the music is really really hard – not nearly has hard as it has been for Erk to try & make a booking for a jet plane early next year. If Erk’s plan works, you’ll be able to look forward to content from America, Japan & Singapore.

Erk Pod 409 – On The Buses: Washington DC

Welcome to episode 409 of Erk Pod (despite what Erk might say in the episode audio). Continuing his epic trip across America, Erk has arrived in Washington DC after catching the train from New Orleans. With only a limited time between trains in DC and with snow on the ground, Erk decides that the way he can best spend his time is to go on a double deck bus tour. This episode was recorded entirely on the bus. The bus was nice & warm & there was an anti-gun protest for added interest. […]

Erk Pod 408 – Cruising The Mississippi, Jazzily!

Welcome to episode 408 of Erk Pod (despite what Erk might say in the episode audio). Continuing his epic trip across America,  Erk decides to spend part of his last evening on the Creole Queen. Cruising on the Mississippi River, there’s food, jazz and sailing for a couple of hours. It was the perfect end to a jazzy time in New Orleans. Who (apart from Ian from Canadia?) says that Erk could only appreciate metal music?  […]

Erk FM: Australia 348 – Attacking The Charts Hard!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 348. Erk has been at one EP launch last weekend (Hard As Nails) & has another one this weekend (Vanity Riots). There is a lot of great music out there & in Sydney this Saturday night, there is great music that Erk has featured on Erk FM before in at least 5 different venues on the one night. Somehow Erk wishes he could be in several places at once! This week, Erk also found that a band he has featured before on Erk FM are starting to gig again with a new lineup.

 

In an unusual move for an Australian indie/unsigned band, Melbourne female fronted hard rock band Bellusira are making an attack on the Australian music charts by encouraging people to pre-order their debut album Connection via JB Hi-fi. Online pre-orders will be signed by the band. In-store pre-orders are also available.

Erk Pod 407 – Swamp People Of New Orleans

Welcome to episode 407 of Erk Pod (despite what Erk might say in the episode audio). Continuing his epic trip across America, Erk goes on a swamp tour near New Orleans. Because the weather was not warm enough, Erk only seen baby alligators on the swamp but that was cool in itself! A little later in summer & the large alligators could be seen on the same tour. Enjoy cruising the swamps with Erk! […]

Erk Pod 406 – Cruising The Dial In Louisiana!

Welcome to episode 406 of Erk Pod (despite what Erk might say during the episode). Erk has wheels! He hopped in a Chrysler & it’s as big as a whale & he is about to set sail!

Deciding to get out of New Orleans, Erk hires a car (achievement unlocked – a nice upgrade!) and points it north into a rural area of Louisiana to visit Ms Paramedic. On the way, he cruises the dial of American radio to sample what people who don’t listen to podcasts are listening to. If that’s not enough, there’s some road trip singing by Erk (sorry!)

The episode finishes with more audio from Erk’s New Orleans tour. […]
