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!

When I finally got to meet JB ... (he was on Epic and i did tour stuff back then) his Tour Mgr said go say hi - he's in the 'green room'.... I was so excited - and told him I had "Hi Ho..." on 45 - he said "I've spent my whole life trying to forget that song..." sigh. I was devastated. He walked away. I cried. But subsequent meet ups were fun and he's quite a hoot. The end.

Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 8:32pm bigplanetnoise:

I got my first copy of KRLA at a garage sale in the early 80's, for a dime. Unplayed. It was like someone drove the Brinks truck up to me!
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 8:32pm Ronnie Dark:

and Keith calls at any random time...my phone rang at 3:30 AM (EST) and it was Keith...he was calling to tell me he had just finished playing a show in LA. I stayed on the phone with him for two hours. Simply put: when Keith calls you answer lol

DJ Pat!!! Welcome!!

Mailman Tom - it wasn't Nick G.?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:32pm Mailman Tom:

At the end of the Electric Flag track, it sounds like a female voice.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Hmmmmm. I'll try to find out.
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:34pm Snayle:

MT - Sounded like Cass Elliot to me... but that's just my old ears tawkin....
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:36pm Mailman Tom:

Yes, Snayle, I think you are correct! Makes perfect sense, they both played Monterey Pop in 1967.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Why was this NOT released as a single?!?!?!?!
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:40pm Snayle:

Dunno... Methinks it was probably a little toooo for AM radio... and too funky for FM...but ...Any Rascals is some good Rascals ! !!!! ... (Big Planet is gettin horny ! )
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 9:41pm Ronnie Dark:

Good point on the Rascals Bob, Atlantic kind of dropped the ball on the band after "A Ray of Hope"
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:41pm Gina Bacon:

  Mon. 4/9/18 9:42pm Snayle:

Good Word Gina !!! Can we quote you ?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:42pm Gina Bacon:

That's Bob's word! I just borrowed it...but quote away! (:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:42pm DJ Pat K:

Loving this Cal Tjader, great track!
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:42pm David VanHooser:

Cal is cool! I have Soul Sauce & a bunch of his Fantasy recordings. Certainly the best Swedish-American Latin musician.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:43pm bigplanetnoise:

I'm so glad that you guys are cool with me sliding stuff like Cal into the playlist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:44pm Matt Clarke:

Wow this Bonzos track sounds like Entwistle is on bass
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:44pm bigplanetnoise:

It does!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:45pm Mailman Tom:

I added that Cal Tjader song to my favorites!
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:45pm Jay S.:

The Smoke is a great, great album
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:45pm bigplanetnoise:

It sure is, Jay.
  🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:46pm Eargasm!:

It really is a great album
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:46pm Matt Clarke:

Yeah I am surprised the Rascals hits dried up in 69. They were mining similar territory that other bands could only try to understand.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:46pm bigplanetnoise:

I had the masters at one time, with extra cuts, all set to issue. And Michael pulled it back at the last minute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:47pm Matt Clarke:

Oh yeah! Blaze! Love the bass playing on the album.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:48pm bigplanetnoise:

Is it Karl Green or John Paul Jones?
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:48pm Snayle:

Sad Face Bob... Gosh, those masters mustve been ahamayzing... wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:48pm Matt Clarke:

Pretty sure it is Karl. Doesn't have a JPJ style to me. Super McCartney sounding
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 9:49pm Ronnie Dark:

pretty sure it's Karl. The tone doesn't strike me as JPJ
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:49pm bigplanetnoise:

Epiphone bass!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:50pm Matt Clarke:

Speaking of great bass lines
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:50pm Snayle:

say... before ya go ...any Crazy Elephant tunes in the vault ? just a peanut of a thought...for down the road...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:51pm bigplanetnoise:

Sure - what would you like, Snayle?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:51pm Matt Clarke:

I think Arthur is the best they ever sounded as a band. What an album!
  🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:53pm Eargasm!:

Did the Left Banke release bad songs???
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:53pm bigplanetnoise:

They did not. Ever.
  Mon. 4/9/18 9:53pm Jay S.:

Goes to show how tough the competition was back than that this barely made a dent in the charts
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:54pm bigplanetnoise:

  Mon. 4/9/18 9:54pm Snayle:

Arthur ! Arthur ! Yes Matt !!! And Left Banke was one genius band... Underrated beyond compare. Yess ! Hmmm... Elephant - silly 'Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'... " or is that too silly... that gaw ffa faw just gets me laffin and tappin... ... otherwise your call.
  🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:54pm Eargasm!:

Or how poorly this was promoted
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Al Jardine's voice sounds like Marc Bolan on this track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:55pm Matt Clarke:

Wild moog sounds
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 9:56pm Ronnie Dark:

Syracuse, NY was such a heavy soul city that very few 60s rock acts (garage or otherwise) could get a solid foothold on the radio here. We did have a few exceptions: "Out of Our Tree" by The Wailers was a top 5 hit on WOLF in '66 (my Dad's band used to cover it). But for the most part if it wasn't top 10 nationally, Syracuse wouldn't play much in the way of rock.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/9/18 9:56pm bigplanetnoise:

So interesting. I love the 60's pockets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 9:57pm Matt Clarke:

Add a glammy guitar and it.could totally be a T Rex tune
