Erk has not been to Brazil or South America but occasionally likes playing music from the region.

Erk Pod 499 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle Day 41 (San Francisco)

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 499. Erk expected to be in San Luis Obispo seeing his good friends Shawno & Jen by this point & be waking up in California. Well, Erk did wake up in California – but bunkered down at the San Francisco airport was not part of the plan.

 

The plan on the previous episode was to fly Walla Walla – Seattle – Salt Lake City – Phoenix – San Luis Obispo. But due to a faulty de-icing truck, this did not happen. Instead, there was a shuttle van ride over to the Tricity airport, a massive wait there, a flight to Seattle & another layover before a late night flight into San Francisco. Napping at the airport, Erk had to get another plane to San Luis Obispo. Not the plan Erk had in mind!

 

In case anyone is actually reading this, the next episode is Erk Pod episode 500 & it will be a lllllooooonnnngggg one! […]

Erk FM: Australia 468 – Experimenting Mobilely

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 468. On this episode, Erk decides to record the episode remotely only using his iPhone and an application called Boss Jock Studio as an experiment. As a result, the show will sound different than usual. All of the artists have appeared on Erk FM: Australia before, some more recently than others. Artists include Acid Nymph, Aimee Francis, Awaken Solace, Domino, Heaven The AxeRise Of Avernus and Vanity Riots. Erk also wanted to play Red Bee and Frankenbok but that plan did not work – Erk later figured out why.  […]

Erk Pod 498 – Erk’s Pacamerican Circle (Day 40 – A Long Travel Day)

Welcome to Erk Pod episode 498. Leaving one regional American city (Walla Walla, Washington) and heading to another (San Luis Obispo, California), Erk knew that he would not be getting a direct flight between the two cities even though they are on the same coast. During planning of the trip, Erk looked at flying via San Francisco (too expensive) or Los Angeles (did it last year) before settling on a plan. With cost, time & frequent flyer points/credits in his mind, Erk finally settled on a route that while long, satisfied him in terms of sights, cost & miles. Leaving Walla Walla, Erk would first fly to Seattle on Alaska Airlines. He would then fly Seattle – Salt Lake City – Phoenix on Acme then conclude on US Airways Phoenix – San Luis Obispo.

 

Nice plan, Erk. One faulty deicing truck changed all that. […]
