Erk FM: Australia 514 – Goodbye Erk FM: Australia!

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 514. This is the final episode of Erk FM: Australia and brings to a close 6 years of music podcasting across all genres. Erk FM started on the first Friday of 2009 with an episode a week to start with. Later, most weeks would see at least 2 episodes a week. Erk FM: International & Erk FM: Australia were created & started as separate shows in December 2011.

 

 

Erk would like to thank all of the musicians, music suppliers, promoters, venues and other music podcasters that he has worked with over the last 6 years. It has been a great ride but it is time to move on. On this extended episode, Erk will feature bands/artists he has seen & enjoyed live.

 

It should be noted that Erk FM: Metal Monday will continue weekly into 2015.

 

 

Thank you for listening.

There have been dedicated Australian & International episodes since December 2011. On this episode, Erk continues Norockvember with several of his favourite artists to see live. Unfortunately, Erk has not seen any of these artists for some time.

Erk FM: Australia 480 – Blasting Back

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia 480. On this episode, Erk decides to go for a blast from the past – namely via his mum. Erk’s mum Judy used to podcast with him on a talk show called Blast From The Past. She later decided to do a music show, Judy’s Blast FM. So Erk decides to replay an episode of Judy’s Blast FM featuring a series of artists primarily from Sydney.

Erk FM: Australia 368 – In Case Of Emergency, Fronz Arp!

Welcome to episode 368 of Erk FM: Australia. This week’s episode features an old friend of the podcast, Fronz Arp. Originally from Brisbane, he called Sydney home for a while before returning home. Now he is on a big adventure calling New York City home for the moment, having the time of his life (I hope!) performing, seeing other performers & meeting a lot of people. During the week, Fronz sent me a link to some new material which is the backbone of a free to download Fronz Arp sampler. FREE FRONZ!

 

If all of this Fronz isn’t enough, Erk plays some tracks from Fronz Arp Is A Crooked Little Orchestra.

Welcome to episode 66 of Erk FM: Metal Monday & episode 306 of Erk FM: Australia. The episode opens at The Valve Bar with interviews & live tracks from Domino & Evil Ugly. Domino are no strangers to Erk FM. They have just recorded their debut album Where The Desert Meets The Sea that will be officially launched in March 2013 at the same venue. It’s Evil Ugly’s first time on Erk FM – on the night of recording the first half of the episode, they were launching their new single Lovesick Laneway.

While there is crossover between Erk FM: Metal Monday & Erk FM: Australia (who doesn’t like female fronted hard rock?) for the first half of the episode, the second half of the episode goes in separate directions depending on which show you are listening to.

For the rest of this episode of Erk FM, Erk looks back at some of the many highlights of his musical year. […]
