"here in there" for "here and there"

The example I stumbled upon: “At times, McIlrath seems to be channeling the thought-provoking lyricism of Greg Graffin (and even sounds like him here in there)”—from a CD review. Googling yielded around 300 unique hits, of which maybe half are this meaning, for instance:

Many years ago I fished for some species around the jetties and offshore using top-water poppers, but had only fished here in there for inshore species. ...

Im sure there will be upgrades here in there for code fixes…

There are a few kisses here in there, it is more action pack than anything else.

Iv lost weight here in there but now im at my highest in life!

I’m not calling at an eggcorn, because I can’t see a meaning connection. I reckon it’s just a mishearing.
