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)

I had no idea that AIP had its own label
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/17/18 8:17pm Uncle Michael:

Ooh, I'll pick your brain later. I have most, if not all of that stuff...but decoding the provenance is a bitch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/17/18 8:17pm Uncle Michael:

how much Adolph Ceasar will we hear tonight?
  Mon. 12/17/18 8:17pm Andy R:

How rare is the AIP label to find? I've seen them show it in some of their '60s movies, but I've never seen anything in the wild.
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 8:17pm bigplanetnoise:

They did, Jay! So many incredible singles on AIP from the 60's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/17/18 8:19pm Uncle Michael:

Hey Gina...how you doin'?
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 8:19pm Gina Bacon:

I'm doing A-ok! How 'bout you?
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 8:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy - I think I've found most of mine by accident. Stumbled into a lot of the 45s over the years. Some were promo-only for radio or theaters. Lots of Kim Fowley involvement on some of the early sides - The Renegades, etc...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/17/18 8:20pm Uncle Michael:

not bad...just chillin' and the crib.

Of the ones you've played tonight, I've only seen two of them so far.

Uh-oh. Bob's posting a photo on the Big Planet Noise Facebook page that may or may not be embarrassing....

  Mon. 12/17/18 9:14pm Eargasm!:

you'd have loved some of the apartments there, Bob. So incredibly cliché to the period. All mirrors and leopard spots. Some folks even brought Africa right to the ghetto, hahah. The apartments would open up to literally the jungle. And behind it all would be the sounds of what youre playing, haha

  Mon. 12/17/18 9:36pm SeanD:

That drum sound is so natural & immediate... I can practically hear the baffles between the drummer and the amps... that was the year disco producers started overdubbing individual drum tracks for the super separated sound... soon after, natural drum sound was history!

I love that sound, SeanD. You can hear the hands hitting.

I almost scored a copy of Blacula during Record Store Day--but someone nabbed it before I could get over to it!
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:48pm bigplanetnoise:

Oh no! Yeah - they reissued it, right?
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:49pm bigplanetnoise:

This set is kinda like Blaxploitation's Greatest Hits!
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:52pm bigplanetnoise:

We're gonna attempt to go a little long tonight - IF we don't get cut off!
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:52pm Gina Bacon:

Yes! Too many songs to quit on time!
  Mon. 12/17/18 9:53pm Andy R:

No, this was an original RCA pressing! It was at Wild Honey.
  Mon. 12/17/18 9:53pm Andy R:

Love this tune!
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:54pm bigplanetnoise:

Oh! I saw that, Andy! I almost bought that a while ago. I didn't grab it though. It wasn't cheap. Did you see the tag?
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:54pm Gina Bacon:

I just love his voice.
  Mon. 12/17/18 9:55pm Jay S.:

Famously used in Jackie Brown

They sure did, Jay!

Incredible tune. We had to stop wrapping gifts to get up and dance for a sec
  Mon. 12/17/18 9:56pm Andy R:

No, but I'm not surprised. Their soundtrack section has amazing stuff, but it is high.
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Best compliment ever, DJ Pat!
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:56pm Gina Bacon:

Ha! That's great, Pat!
  Mon. 12/17/18 9:56pm Andy R:

I did nab a $45 LP of Universal Monster movie scores--which was too oddball and rare not to grab.

I may be up in your neck of the woods in the near future!
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 9:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy - $100.00

I did luck up and found an original Superfly LP in an antique mall around here two years back.

  Mon. 12/17/18 10:04pm Jan Zed:

Anyone aware of a direct connection between Laurie Johnson of (British tv show) Avengers fame and blaxploitation soundtracks?
Avatar Mon. 12/17/18 10:04pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks Snayle! We're still gonna go for it! It'll all be in the archive!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone for being here with us - we massively appreciate it! We’re back on CHRISTMAS EVE - with a unique, mostly-music show, very little chatter… It’s our 3rd annual “Christmas Not Christmas” show - I’ll be playing you things that make me FEEL all holiday-ish… up close and personal-like! Cool, weird stuff. I know it’s a big, big night, but I hope some of you can join us! Happy Holidays, everyone - love to all!!!
