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 (EST) (Web-only) | On WFMU's Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban (Info)

Me at work a few years ago: "Who IS this?!"

Co-worker: "Electric Prunes."

Me [indignant]: "No it's not."

Co-worker: "Yes it is" [Shows me the cover to Live '67 Stockholm CD]

Me: [Still in denial]: "No, this is someone COVERING the Prunes. This sounds amazing.

Me: "The sound is...I've never heard them like this before...I mean..."

I'm propped in front of the fireplace listening to the show! Re: Electric Prunes -- were some of the early tracks remixed at some point? I feel like i keep hearing tonal/instrument differences whenever i hear the tracks... or is it just the standard mono/stereo differences?
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 8:42pm Senor Headache:

They drum sound alone on that CD is bonkers for a mid-sixties radio show.

Hey Mike! Prob mono vs stereo. I don't think anyone's ever remixed the Prunes.

This set reminds me, I’ve got a Dave Clark Five live album I’ve yet to listen to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:18pm Uncle Michael:

Bob, I used the applause that was already overdubbed. I built an all-star cavalcade out of existing fake live releases.
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 9:18pm Dan McNabb:

great Hollies doc on Amazon Prime with cool live footage
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:18pm Gina Bacon:

Well, there you go! Now you know what you have to do!

Gina, that's my face...the rest is James Brown.

I was just spinning some Hollies 45s this afternoon - the Bob box. And as always I was amazed ...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim - which album is that???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:19pm Dominick:

Yes! This record. Marred only by the fake applause.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Dan! Tell me about the Hollies doc - what's it called???
  🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:19pm Eargasm!:

i wish graham Nash would put more energy into making a Hollies reunion happen than a CSN&Y
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:19pm Gina Bacon:

I figured, Uncle Michael. It's a great image, though!

Hi Dan!

On YouTube there's some live rehearsal footage of The Cowsills for Ed Sullivan which is a lot of fun
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:20pm bigplanetnoise:

Dom - absolutely. So unbelievably good. Have you seen the live clip on youtube of The Rain The Park & other Things?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:20pm Matt Clarke:

I think the issue of a Hollies reunion is Allan can't sing that much anymore
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:21pm bigplanetnoise:

Jay - yes!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:21pm Dominick:

Yes! they killed at that Sullivan rehearsal
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:21pm bigplanetnoise:

Is that true, Matt?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:21pm Gina Bacon:

I'm going to look for that, Jay!

It's really good - so is the clip of The Cowsills on Playboy After Dark

Every time Liz hears The Byrds she adopts a faux Southern accent, it’s her “Sally” character

Why is that, Alex??? Why not a Valley girl??

Haha...that is funny!

Michael Clarke sounds real good on the Swedish session
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 9:24pm Dan McNabb:

just snoozed on that swedish byrds lp on the bay. argh! gotta get it together and get a copy.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:24pm bigplanetnoise:

I played it right from the original reel from the radio station!
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 9:24pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Bob, she did it on our first date. Fair warning, it WILL come out when we’re in Nashville
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:24pm bigplanetnoise:

McGuinn had the master!
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:25pm David VanHooser:

That sounded too together to be the '67 Byrds.

Bob Mosley. Unstoppable.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:26pm bigplanetnoise:

David - very together. Playing softly - they were able to hear...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:26pm Gina Bacon:

I certainly hope so, Alex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:26pm Matt Clarke:

Also the late 67 Winterland concert with the trio line-up is pretty impressive

Hi David VanHooser!
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:27pm David VanHooser:

Will that ever be officially released?

I wish there were tapes floating around somewhere of their Village Gate residency

I actually like the tempo and feel of the Hey Joe performance there
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:29pm Tim from LH:

Bob, it’s American Tour DC5.

All this live stuff is boss!

Interesting that they'd call it live. when it's not.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:33pm Snayle:

and to think the BB's performed to thousands in Hawaii and more on tee vee on that episode of Full House.... :p
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:34pm Gina Bacon:

The DC Five, that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:36pm Matt Clarke:

Did the Byrds do a Beeb session on the YtY promo tour in 67?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:37pm bigplanetnoise:

Not that I've ever heard or known about.
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:37pm Jay S.:

I LOVE this
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 9:38pm Dan McNabb:

i guess the Byrds Ready Steady Go episode is gonzo?

Hopefully DC has it!

Awesome. Me too, Jay. So good.
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 9:39pm Dan McNabb:

or was that mimed?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Dan - I think most of the RSG tapes were lost or erased, right? I think Dave just got the remaining stash. Which was really not all that much...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:40pm Gina Bacon:

Sigh. Desert Island Album.
Avatar Mon. 1/21/19 9:41pm Dan McNabb:

yeah heard the Beeb reused tapes. We can thank Phil Collins for recording The Action stuff. Maybe there was a Byrds super fan that did the same
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:41pm Dominick:

My earliest Beach Boys show was Carnegie Hall right after Sunflower was released. Big band. Yes Gina, Smiley is one I'd take for sure
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:42pm bigplanetnoise:

I wish there was a Byrds super-fan that recorded the Opry performance. Back when I did the second boxset, I ran ads in the Nashville papers, just hoping someone taped it off the air. I mean, you KNOW someone did, right?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:43pm Gina Bacon:

Wow, that's amazing, Bob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:44pm Matt Clarke:

I am surprised they wouldn't have recorded it themselves for posterity! Considering it was such a big deal
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Ran the ad for months. Without one single response. Not one.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:45pm Snayle:

wow, not one? so sad...
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:45pm Eric:

Enjoying the show! Great thanks to Gayle for turning me on to it!
Extra thanks for playing my friends in The Magoos and The Prunes!
Terrific music tonight!!!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:45pm Gina Bacon:

I know a guy who bootlegged a lot of shows, but I don't think he was around then, or would have been too young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:46pm Dominick:

Well, Bob can tell stories about how well Columbia took care of their masters .

Hey Eric!!! Thanks for joining us! Glad you're enjoying it!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:46pm Matt Clarke:

It's cool at least those Italian '68 shows were recorded to hear that line-up
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:47pm Gina Bacon:

This song has a really nice vibe...pardon the pun.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:47pm bigplanetnoise:

Oh, Dom. The stories I have about when I first got there. Vic and I couldn't believe what we were seeing. This was is in '89.
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:47pm Tim from LH:

I got to see the Rascals live on the last night of their Broadway run a couple years ago. Maybe their last show ever with all 4 original members!

Welcome, Eric! Glad you're here!

Matt - have you ever heard them in decent fidelity? I haven't.

That's cool, Tim. Wish I saw it.
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:48pm Eric:

Btw, Peppy still has an electric suit!!!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:48pm Snayle:

Tim - we saw one of the early ones when The Young Rascals played our High School... Eric - were you there for that?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:48pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah Andy - SUCH a great album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/21/19 9:49pm Matt Clarke:

Never bpn. And whoever was recording them was standing too close to Doug Dillard, who on some of those song, I wish would have held back a bit!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:49pm bigplanetnoise:

Right. That's how I've heard it.
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:50pm Tim from LH:

Eric, my first concert was Peppy’s next band, Barnaby Bye around ‘73.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:51pm bigplanetnoise:

Eric - does he have THE electric suit?!?!?!?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:51pm Gina Bacon:

Oh wow!! The electric suit!!
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:54pm Eric:

I saw The Rascals in the early days, but not at the school. Also saw them a couple of times at their reunion shows a few years ago! What an amazing band!
Btw, I interviewed Felix on WPKN. And Peppy from The Magoos (four times, including live performances and some incredible stories). And James and Mark from The Prunes.
All wonderful people... and incredibly entertaining on radio!

Real fun show Bob y Gina! Bravo!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:58pm Uncle Michael:

Is this session before or after Ed left the Rising Sons?
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:58pm David VanHooser:

When I worked at Tower Books we reserved a copy of a songwriter magazine for Felix. I remarked that he shouldn't need one & he said "We all need all the help we can get".
  🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:58pm Eargasm!:

This was great as usual. The best thing about Mondays.

Uncle Mike - after. It's Kevin Kelley.
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:59pm Tim from LH:

Great show! Remember Bob, you promised/threatened us with an all ski/ snow show before the winters out!
  Mon. 1/21/19 9:59pm Eric:

Well, I think there were five electric suits for The Magoos. It's possible that Peppy's is the only remaining one. The lights don't work, but the suit's fine!
Peppy told me some very funny stories about the batteries giving them problems on the stage when the strobe lights came on.
Also a classic story about them running around in a field near a freeway with the suit lights on.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/21/19 9:59pm bigplanetnoise:

Thank you, thank you, everyone for being here with us!!!! Hope to see everyone again next Monday eve! Hope everyone has a fantastic and much WARMER week - love to all!!!
