Erk Pod 198 – Chrissy Unplugged

[Download episode – 70 minutes]

 

Welcome to episode 198 of Erk Pod. This interview was recorded in a Starbucks in New York City with singer/songwriter Chrissy Coughlin  (@chrissymusic on Twitter). And yes, it is episode 198 despite what Erk says (twice!) in the episode. Erk got distracted again…..

 

In this wide ranging interview, Erk & Chrissy chat about starting off in music, learning to play the guitar as an adult, moving around & settling down, song writing, album making and a lot lot more. During the interview, you will also hear 3 of Chrissy’s songs as well (Wait For You, Big Log & Do It Out Of Love).

 

 

This interview was the result of Erk playing Chrissy’s music on Erk’s music podcast Erk FM. And yet somehow despite it being a music interview, Shawno from Hyper Nonsense still gets a mention!

Welcome to Erk FM!

 

Welcome to Erk’s latest podcast – ERK FM! It reminds me of my time in Community (think public, Americans) Radio where I had some music and I played it for the enjoyment of others. I didn’t have a lot of music of my own at the time in the early 1990’s when I was on the radio. I had some cassettes and LP’s of my own, used some of my co-host’s CD’s (I didn’t have CD’s then) or whatever was lying around the station. Now in 2008/2009, I have access to a lot of music but due to my employment outside the industry, I can’t commit to radio. But thanks to podcasting, I can commit to that and entertain you when I’m not working!

 

Erk FM is a selection of podsafe music presented as a weekly audio podcast for your enjoyment. To begin with, all music will either be from Erk FM’s prefered sources of podsafe music – Podsafe Music Network or Ariel Publicity. I also listen to many podcasts and I might hear a song on another podcast that I like so I’ll play those songs as well.

 

Erk FM will be produced weekly to arrive on your computer, iPod or other MP3 player at the end of your work week (Fridays in Australia). Each episode will feature a list of songs and artists with links to the artist’s website as well as to the source of the music. You will also be able to play each episode from the website.

 

So what sort of music will you hear on Erk FM? I enjoy a wide range of music so you will hear a wide range of music here on Erk FM. I might even discover some music that I didn’t know was out there that I like as well! 

 

Erk FM will complement but not replace either or my current podcasts Erk Pod or Echo Romeo Kilo One One. This show is dedicated to music and will hopefully include interviews with artists over time. From time to time, music may be also played on Erk Pod.

 

If you are in a band or have an agency and would like me to play your music, send me an email to erkpod@gmail.com and you’ll be able to hear it on a future episode!

 

Visit the Erk FM website and look out for episode 1 coming down the pipe into your ears on Friday 16 January! The episode has been produced and it will feature some familiar sounding tunes!

Erk Pod Round Table 12 – show notes


ROUND TABLE 12 WITH HOSTS ERK & DRUE WITH A CAST OF VARIOUS PANELISTS
SATURDAY 20 DECEMBER 2008, 12pm Sydney time

On Erk Pod Round Table 12, we celebrate a year’s worth of Round Tables, 12 months of Drue being the co-host of Erk Pod, Xmas, New Year and who knows what else! This is the biggest (and funniest!) Round Table ever!

 

In the Erk Pod studio were:

Joining in via Skype at various stages were:

 

All music on this Round Table is courtesy of Ariel Publicity and comes from the following track list:
NOTE: We had some major recording FAIL so the audio was supplied (thankfully!) by Richard at his end via Skype. During music, we mute the studio mics and Skype so conversations normally do not come onto the recording. However, the audio you will hear was recorded by Richard so you will hear conversations between people on Skype that people in the studio would not be able to hear. Drue was on Skype for the latter half of the Round Table and he tells Erk that the conversations were very interesting. So I’m going to leave them in. I will be putting the songs played on each episode at the end of each episode un-interupted so you can hear and enjoy the song properly.
Once again, a massive thanks to Richard for saving our bacon with the audio! If it wasn’t for Richard, there basically would be no audio from the Round Table!
