For more than 25 years, Bob Irwin, the Dean of Sundazed Music, has befuddled, disoriented, and otherwise thrilled collectors and consumers alike by refusing to drive between the lines. Swerving wildly from garage to psych, from surf to soul, from biker to bossa, Bob’s steering with his elbows and hollerin’ like a banshee as he careens all over Route ‘60s, knocking over traffic cones.

The show is called Big Planet Noise! – and it’s hosted by Bob and Gina Frary Bacon, the gal with the great voice. It’s almost always all-vinyl, from Bob’s insane collection. The show became a must-listen in Nashville, a town unaccustomed to such carryings-on, and it’s now primed to become a part of your not-too-proud-to-be-surprised lives. Strap in and head to WFMU.org’s Rock ’n’ Soul Ichiban stream, every Monday from 8-10 pm EST!

Mondays 8 - 10pm (EDT) (Web-only) | On WFMU's Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban (Info)

Hey Andy!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:07pm bigplanetnoise:

One of the best labels from Western NY???
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:07pm Mailman Tom:

I saw Traffic perform at the Fillmore East back in April 1968!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:08pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Mailman Tom - that is VERY cool. Was that first or second album time?
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:09pm bigplanetnoise:

Here's that single version with the crazy Neil Young solo! So much wylder than the more common LP version!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:10pm Mailman Tom:

It was during their 2nd album time.

Hello all,. Great start Bob and Gina
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:11pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Rich - thanks!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:12pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Rich...and howdy!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:12pm bigplanetnoise:

So - check this Byrds track. This is the single version. It's the ONLY place where you hear the shakers. They're NOT on the mono LP!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:13pm bigplanetnoise:

Something I missed when I did all the reissues.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:15pm Andy R:

I can't remember when I last heard "My Girlfriend is a Witch," but man is it so great!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:16pm bigplanetnoise:

Michael Lloyd song, production and lead guitar...
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:16pm Mailman Tom:

Didn't October Country have a hit with a song titled, "October Country"?
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:18pm bigplanetnoise:

It was a single by them. I'm not sure about the hit-status though!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:18pm bigplanetnoise:

It was also recorded by Michael Lloyd with his band Smoke, on their amazing LP on Sidewalk.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Ron Asheton tone on that guitar.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:28pm Mailman Tom:

I think it bubbled under the Hot 100 for a week or two. It was played on NYC FM radio back in the day.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:30pm bigplanetnoise:

That's very cool. Now I want to do a bubbling-under show.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:30pm Andy R:

OK, clear something up for me if you can. I've always been curious. Did they just dub his version over The Count Five's backing track?
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:31pm bigplanetnoise:

I don't think so, at least not in its entirety. There are parts that absolutely sound that they appear in both versions, but there's more new than old overall.. There. I think I just cleared up absolutely nothing for you.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Like that LOUD organ part.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Love the vocal in this.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:34pm Andy R:

I think I like the mystery of that track's existence even more now.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:35pm bigplanetnoise:

You have the album? Mono is kind of tough.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:38pm Andy R:

I do. I have a stereo copy of it. I bought it years ago...I think at an antique mall in the area. I love "Gimmie Little Sign" and was so happy to find it, but was thrown for a loop when I saw "Psychotic reaction" on the track list. I didn't know they shared a label till I got a 45 of Count Five's version maybe two years later.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Fiercest version EVER.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:41pm Andy R:

That was a find at Lost and Found, they label 45s to note if they're from Nuggets. They've had a few of those roll through there lately.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:41pm bigplanetnoise:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/2/18 8:43pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

good Monday BPN Gina and folks
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:43pm Eargasm!:

Good evening! Great show! really dug hearing that Clouds track. Been a long time!
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:44pm Andy R:

Various titles from Nuggets 1--the box set version. I grabbed "Nobody But Me," and "Sit Down I Think I Love You" last time I was there. Sit Down is little rough, but Nobody sounds SO PERFECT! I also nabbed a "She's About A Mover" 45 there.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:45pm bigplanetnoise:

Lost & Found is such a cool store. Wild Honey is as well.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:46pm bigplanetnoise:

Howdy, Eargasm!!!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:47pm Gina Bacon:

Hey Glynis!! Happy Monday!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:47pm Gina Bacon:

Hey, Eargasm!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:47pm bigplanetnoise:

Hi GlynisGirlGroupGirlGroupGirlGroupGirl!
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:48pm Andy R:

I love them both. The Couple that runs Wild Honey are so sweet. I've found a few of my holy grail titles there. Last year on RSD I picked up some really clean Spanky and Our Gang LPs I was missing there.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:48pm Andy R:

Hey, Glynis!!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:49pm bigplanetnoise:

It ain't cheap, but every record is immaculate at WH.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:54pm Andy R:

Very true. Great spot to have in the area.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:54pm Andy R:

Paul Revere and The Raiders are SUCH an underrated group.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Not in MY house!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:56pm bigplanetnoise:

I LOVE this version SOOOO much! Al Kooper on fuzz guitar.
  Mon. 4/2/18 8:56pm Eargasm!:

one of my all time favorite shows of yours
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/2/18 8:56pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Paul Revere & The Raiders are my #1
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Thank you, Paul!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/2/18 8:57pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

I need this Tom Rush LP
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:57pm bigplanetnoise:

Didn't know it was your #1, GGGG!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 8:58pm bigplanetnoise:

I just recently found this beautiful mono copy right here in town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/2/18 8:59pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

I think finding the Raiders car model sealed it. I have no idea where the model is right now. In an unopened box for the last two years, obviously.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:00pm bigplanetnoise:

You need to display that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/2/18 9:01pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

It needs some repairs. Miss Kitty used to try and sit in it when she was a kitten. She knocked poor Paul right outta his seat!
  Mon. 4/2/18 9:02pm Andy R:

I need more of the albums in Mono, only one I have in Mono is "Spirit Of '67" but I have most of the catalog in Stereo.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:02pm bigplanetnoise:

Poor Paul!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:02pm bigplanetnoise:

Always worth searching for those monos, Andy!!!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:03pm Daffodil2:

Hi, Gina & Bob! I'm SO late to the show... late supper because we were still full from all that ham and soda bread!! :)

That's good, right?!?!?!?!!?
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:08pm Daffodil2:

Hey, Bob, did you ever meet Lawrence, of the Denims? He sounds very mysterious.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:09pm bigplanetnoise:

I did not. In fact, I don't know much about them. Are you Googling, Daffodil?!?!?!?
Avatar Mon. 4/2/18 9:10pm Daffodil2:

Of course! Just read about Billy Gibbons, too!

Yeah - me too, Andy. This was a top ten song in Albany NY, way back when.
  Mon. 4/2/18 9:25pm Andy R:

That Singles CD set of The Turtles pretty much stayed in my car all year last year.

Where's Snayle tonight? I have her request coming up next....
