Erk FM: International 367 – Sending A Message To Studio B

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 367. Sometimes, Erk likes to dedicate songs or episodes to people. Sometimes he likes to use one keyboard & search his music partners & see what happens. This week’s keyword will become plainly obvious. There’s not a lot of talking but a lot of music this week!

Erk Pod 425 – New York Wanderer

Welcome to episode 425 of Erk Pod (despite what Erk might say in the episode audio). Continuing his epic trip across America, Erk is still wandering the snowy streets of New York City. There is so much to see & do in New York – if you get bored or have nothing to do there, Erk thinks that is your fault rather than the city of New York’s. The snow is starting to melt & it is easier to walk around the city. In areas that haven’t been cleared, though, there is still a lot of snow to be seen. […]

Erk FM: Australia 366 – By Your Side At The Newsagency!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 366. Last weekend, Erk had the pleasure of being in a very tightly packed inner western Sydney venue The Newsagency for Alison Avron’s EP launch as discussed on Erk FM: Australia episode 362. It was a sold out event with both audience members & performers having a great time. The night was filled with zany lyrics, humour & lots of laughter. It was certainly the sort of night Erk needed!

 

 

The first artist on this episode is Imogen Bel, Originally from Newcastle, Imogen is now calling Sydney home. Her first Sydney gig was actually at The Newsagency.  Following Imogen on the episode is Helen Perris. Erk last saw Helen at the same venue when she was heavily pregnant but she’s back with baby in tow & working towards a new EP.  Finally, the episode will feature the lady of the episode, Alison Avron (of course!). Each lady brings something to the table but also harmonise together so well!

 

On the night, Imogen & Helen did backing vocals for Alison. There will be a couple of live tracks to end the episode.

  • 06:15 – Snow Covered Hill – Imogen Bel (direct)
  • 10:21 – Golden Age Of Cinema – Imogen Bel (direct)

Erk Pod 424 – A Sunday In New York

Welcome to episode 424 of Erk Pod (despite what Erk might say in the episode audio).

Erk To The Diary Room

Erk To The Diary Room 19 – Erk’s TV Watching Has Been Sky High!

Erk knows that it has been a while since an episode of Erk To The Diary Room! However, a big problem with hosting a TV & entertainment podcast is that you have to watch TV to do it. For some shows, this is easy. But if you like watching the sort of shows Erk likes to talk about, you just can’t want one episode & that’s it. While some of these shows are weekly, others are daily or at least several times a week.

 

Sneak peeks are annoying as are shows that promise so much every year but deliver nothing. Also, is social media helpful or not when it comes to watching TV?

Erk FM: Australia 364 – Simply Symphonic!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 364. On this episode, Erk gets a little symphonic! Based on listening to an artist on Erk FM: Metal Monday, Erk found that 2 Australian bands that he has played would sound very good together on an episode. Now based in the same city (Brisbane, aka Brisvegas), Alpine Fault & Awaken Solace have metal leanings but are very accessible for those who don’t like the growly growly metal.
