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)

This is a very nice version of this song
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 4/7/19 11:19am Julie P.:

I like it better than the Chicago version for sure!

Yessss! It's really hard for Astrud to be anything but fantastic in my book!
  Sun. 4/7/19 11:19am gina b:

I second that.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 4/7/19 11:20am bigplanetnoise:

Julie - that's SO funny - I was JUST saying the same thing the other day, that I really love Chicago COVERS - would always rather hear them than Chicago themselves!!
  Sun. 4/7/19 11:21am gina b:

I’m appreciating them as a band as I get older, but still not sure....
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 4/7/19 11:21am Julie P.:

They were great in the time, but a lot of it has been SO overplayed. It's nice to hear different takes.
