The core of Big Planet Noise was formed when Bob Irwin was just 5 years old. The day he picked up his first 45, the whole thing set to spinning – and records and music have been pretty much all he’s thought about ever since. Avocation eventually became vocation, leading to Sundazed Music and Modern Harmonic, all drawing inspiration from Bob’s legendary collection. But, what good is having so many records if no-one else can hear them with you?

Big Planet Noise is Bob’s way of inviting everyone over to hang out in the music room while he and co-host Gina Bacon flip through the stacks and play great records. And – the BPN chat room is where the action is… they yak about what’s on the turntable, tell stories, backstories, and share what was had for dinner, friends ’n family style. Gina keeps the celestial orbit steady-as-it-goes; making sure the stylus stays in the groove, the stacks don’t teeter and the drinks don’t spill all over the console. NB: Gina can also be heard on Saturday afternoons as the host of Someday Matinee (also on WFMU's Give The Drummer Radio stream), a show filled with live musical performances and artist interviews, direct from Music City.

There’s a reason it’s called Big Planet Noise… the show covers a lot of musical ground; familiar, forgotten, unheralded, unheard… The sonic menu is ever-changing; you’ll hear oddball teens, psychedelic wizards, mod lads, sitar savants, space-cadets, groovy soundtracks, and maybe even some bossa nova, when it feels right.

  8:18pm Eargasm!:

It was, Gina! Couldn't beat it! Sounding great as always tonight!
Avatar 8:18pm Dominick:

That rising pitch sound at the end of the intro of the Missing Links song. The oscillators rise in pitch as power dies.
Avatar 8:19pm Julie P.:

The keyboard player in my high school band had a Farfisa and a Leslie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gina Bacon:

Oh, wow. I'll have to go back and listen.
Avatar 8:19pm bigplanetnoise:

No kidding!!!! I had NO idea!!! Thank you for THAT tidbit!!!
Avatar 8:19pm AlexClarkCaprio:

One of the many songs I first heard here
Avatar 8:20pm bigplanetnoise:

We need yo hear the recordings of that band, Julie!!!! What were you called?!?!?
Avatar 8:20pm bigplanetnoise:

Which one, Alex???
Avatar 8:20pm Snayle:

You make the week right Bob! I got the BPN headset on As Mum watches Antique Roadshow, a '64 Gibson ES 335 just valued at 12-12,500k.

Friday On My Mind
Avatar 8:21pm Julie P.:

"This Strange Tomorrow" (taken from a sci-fi novel), and fortunately I don't think there are any recordings extant. Whew!
Avatar 8:21pm Julie P.:

Loved watching the horn in the Leslie spin when he was really crankin'.
Avatar 8:25pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - THAT's a GREAT name!!!
Avatar 8:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks, Snayle - a show ain't a show unless you're here! ❤️

Friday on my mind fk yeah so good
Avatar 8:27pm Julie P.:

We didn't have any original material - we only did covers - but we had a great time: "Pinball Wizard", "White Rabbit", "House of the Rising Sun" to mention the ones I can remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gina Bacon:

Hi KathrynD!
Avatar 8:27pm Mailman Tom:

The last time I saw a Leslie spin was at a '68 Sly and the Family Stone concert in Central Park NYC.
Avatar 8:27pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey KathrynD!!! Glad you're here with us!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gina Bacon:

Avatar 8:28pm bigplanetnoise:

I SO wish you had recordings, Julie!
Avatar 8:28pm bigplanetnoise:

Mailman - that is SO cool that you were at that show.. Damn....
Avatar 8:29pm Julie P.:

Yay, Hollies! Hey Bob, is that an alternate mix on "Hold Me Tight"? I don't remember it ending like that.
Avatar 8:29pm Julie P.:

Cool, Mailman!
Avatar 8:30pm bigplanetnoise:

Right off the orig UK LP, Julie Maybe they shortened it for the U.S. release??
  8:30pm Alan M:

Hey Bob & Gina! Another great show! Back to the Rascals .... You Better Run is such a great tune! I also think the 1966 "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore" is an amazing song and pretty unique for 1966.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Gina Bacon:

Hi Alan!
Avatar 8:31pm Julie P.:

Alan M., I heartily concur on the Rascals!
Avatar 8:31pm bigplanetnoise:

Alan! Thanks for joining us!!! Yeah - that song came out of nowhere! I love Lori Burton's (the songwriter) version of it, too!!! And there were a zillion covers, too!
Avatar 8:33pm bigplanetnoise:

We've been playing a fair amount of Rascals lately... some of the hits, but lots of LP cuts as well.. They were GODS in upstate NY when I was a kid. Every local band covered nearly everything on every album.
  8:34pm Tim from LH:

So great to hear early Beatles, Hollies, Stones and now The Pretty Things, thanks Bob!
Avatar 8:35pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks, Tim! I'm so glad you're digging it! Sometimes it goes pretty obscure, but it's always good to bring out the big boys, too!!!
Avatar 8:36pm Julie P.:

Oh, but the obscure is part of the charm, Bob!
Avatar 8:37pm bigplanetnoise:

Oh, I agree with that, Julie!
Avatar 8:37pm bigplanetnoise:

Always try for a nice blend of familiar and forgotten.....
Avatar 8:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Mindbenders every week! No???
  8:39pm Alan M:

Bob, you are so right. My very first band played a bunch of Rascals tunes and the crowds really loved anything by the Rascals back then. We never got any bottles thrown at us when we stayed on the Rascals course.
Avatar 8:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Alan - hahahaha!!!! I want to know when they thew the bottles!!!
Avatar 8:40pm Julie P.:

I don't remember us covering any Rascals songs, but they definitely got a lot of turntable time.
Avatar 8:41pm Julie P.:

AHHHHHH! "Cool Jerk"!
  8:41pm Mary:

Hi Everybody!!!
  8:41pm Jay S.:

Have not heard this version before

Hi Mary!
Avatar 8:42pm bigplanetnoise:

Jay - it's really cool, no?!?!?!?
  8:42pm Eargasm!:

I love this version of Cool Jerk! How did this band not get huge on either side of the Atlantic?
  8:42pm Eargasm!:

Hello, Mary!
  8:42pm Jay S.:

Oh yeah! Knew it would be!
Avatar 8:44pm bigplanetnoise:

I'll tell ya..... when it comes to the Ybirds, great is great is great is great.. Dayum.... So good, always.
  8:44pm Tim from LH:

Who’s on the studio version? Clapton or Beck?
Avatar 8:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Is there a single Yardbirds song that ANYONE is sick of??? Not for me!!!
Avatar 8:45pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim - Beck all the way!!!!!
  8:45pm Tim from LH:

Not me!
Avatar 8:46pm Mailman Tom:

I saw the Young Rascals play at Shea Stadium in 1970. It was their final show until they reunited a few years ago and toured as the Rascals (not so young anymore!)
Avatar 8:46pm vanhooserd:

The first two LPs I bought were Rubber Soul & Having A Rave Up. Along with the KIcks 45. At K-Mart, I think.
Avatar 8:46pm bigplanetnoise:

Who was left in the band, Mailman??? Felix and ???? Was it "Carry Me Back" time???

Avatar 9:15pm Mailman Tom:

When Canned Heat played the Fillmore East, they were introduced by a light show that projected a Sterno can opening, letting out a big blast of heat!
  9:17pm Jan Zed:

Enjoying the picks!!
  9:19pm nostrangerer:

Canned Heat's first few albums covered amazing range of blues material and then the boogie thing began to dominate a bit much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Gina Bacon:

Howdy, and thanks, Jan!
Avatar 9:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Mailman - that's amazing - and brilliant!!!!
Avatar 9:20pm bigplanetnoise:

Hi nostrangerer!
Avatar 9:20pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey nostrangerer!!! Yeah - the non-stop boogie stuff was a little too much...

I'll tell ya..... I LOVED this single when it first came out. I could not play it ENOUGH!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Gina Bacon:

Such a nice groove....
Avatar 9:25pm Ronnie Dark:

Comeback hit for them. A group worth rediscovering for sure

Mine too, Jan!!!
Avatar 9:27pm Julie P.:

Those harmonies - swoon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Jan every week!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar 9:28pm Ronnie Dark:

I haven't heard it to compare, but I was told the stereo mix of the We Five track has an out of tune guitar part...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Um, woops! BEV every week!! lol!
Avatar 9:29pm bigplanetnoise:

GGGG!!! Hahahaha! Got it!!!
Avatar 9:29pm bigplanetnoise:

Ronnie - there's no money to be made by listening to stereo versions of mono hits!!! Hahahaha!
Avatar 9:30pm Ronnie Dark:

haha indeed! Some of the stereo mixes back then are just plain...weird
Avatar 9:30pm bigplanetnoise:

GGGG - did she (Bev) ever do anything else????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Uncle Michael:

Hi gang.
Avatar 9:31pm Julie P.:

Mah boyz! We the People!
Avatar 9:31pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey! Uncle Mike!!! Welcome!!!
Avatar 9:31pm Julie P.:

Bob, weren't some of those stereo mixes just reprocessed mono?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gina Bacon:

Hey Uncle Michael!!
Avatar 9:31pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - your homeboys!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you!
  9:32pm Snayle:

Yay Clear Light returns! Yay!!!
Avatar 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - yes. We NEVER play them here!!!!!!
Avatar 9:33pm Ronnie Dark:

You just made my night! Monkees!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm nostrangerer:

Great selections today, I started listening during the Dylan tune. Looking at the earlier playlist and I can see I want start again from the beginning!
Avatar 9:33pm Julie P.:

Thanks for the Monkees track, Bob! One of my faves! And good to know about the mono/stereo!
Avatar 9:34pm Andy R:

Nez doing his thang here, one of my favorite Monkees tunes.
Avatar 9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

F%$king Nesmith. Goosebumps always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Uncle Michael:

Hi, Gina.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, nostrangerer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Uncle Michael:

Papa Nez every week?
Avatar 9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Thank you, nostrangerer!!! Hope you join us often!!! Love having you here!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Gina Bacon:

I ❤️ Monkees!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Gina Bacon:

Glad you said it, Uncle Michael!
Avatar 9:35pm bigplanetnoise:

I'm ALL for Nez every week!!!!!!
Avatar 9:35pm Ronnie Dark:

More Nez affiliation!
  9:35pm Jay S.:

Nez into the Penny Arkade, nice
Avatar 9:36pm Mailman Tom:

Clear Light was one of the first Rock bands to have two drummers, if I'm not mistaken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Beverly retired after the We Five to raise her family but has been singing again for the last 5 years or so.
Avatar 9:37pm bigplanetnoise:

And Dallas Taylor was one of 'em, right Mailman???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Uncle Michael:

Clear Light should have been so huge that the Doors would have gotten lost in the shuffle instead of them.
Avatar 9:38pm Julie P.:

Yes, please - Nez every week! Some of his solo stuff too!
Avatar 9:38pm Ronnie Dark:

Cliff DeYoung too! Clear Light. Try finding THAT album in MONO. Took me forever to score a clean copy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm nostrangerer:

Wow, was in a garage band in the 70s that covered "she does everything ..." and this is the first time for me to hear that version...
  9:39pm Eargasm!:

Took me a long time as well. It's tough in mono
Avatar 9:39pm AlexClarkCaprio:

I have the Clear Light in mono on my Itunes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Uncle Michael:

I missed the food talk!
Avatar 9:40pm bigplanetnoise:

nostrangerer - that's amazing!!!
Avatar 9:40pm Mailman Tom:

Yes, and Dallas left us too early in 2015 at age 66.
Avatar 9:40pm bigplanetnoise:

Mono Clear Light is tough! Glad we all have one!!!!
Avatar 9:40pm Ronnie Dark:

For some reason Eargasm! there are several hard MONO lps to score in great shape: Love "Forever Changes", Buckinghams "Portraits" and Notorious Byrd Bros to name a few
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Geeze now I'm hungry!!!
Avatar 9:41pm bigplanetnoise:

Uncle Mike - your posts always make me super-hungry. Stop that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Uncle Michael:

No can do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Gina Bacon:

Me too. It's a good kind of torture.
Avatar 9:42pm bigplanetnoise:

Ronnie - I don't know that I've ever seen a mono "Portraits"....
Avatar 9:43pm bigplanetnoise:

Can I just say that I LOVE the fact that this was issued as an A-side on a 45?!?!?!?!?!!?!????
  9:43pm Eargasm!:

Yeah, seems they were right at the cusp of when stereo became the format of choice. John Wesley Harding in mono isn't falling out of trees either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar 9:44pm Ronnie Dark:

It's out there Bob. Dedicated mix too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Gina Bacon:

Yeah, that's pretty wild.
Avatar 9:44pm Ronnie Dark:

It's dirtier sounding. Doesn't translate as well as the stereo version
  9:44pm Eargasm!:

What was their A&R guy thinking hahaah
Avatar 9:45pm bigplanetnoise:

I've had the master, Ronnie. Just never found the LP! A commercial copy of mono "Bookends" continues to elude me as well.
Avatar 9:45pm Ronnie Dark:

They were smoking the bananas..TOGETHER!
Avatar 9:46pm Ronnie Dark:

I found "Bookends" at a flea market but it was only in G condition :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Gina Bacon:

Sing it, Cher!
Avatar 9:46pm AlexClarkCaprio:

We're the mono elite
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Just got back seeing the Aretha doc. Been dying to see it since I heard decades ago that Sydney Pollack filmed it. It (she) is monumental.

Greetings, Planeteers!
Avatar 9:46pm bigplanetnoise:

Cher does Ray Davies.... so good.
Avatar 9:47pm bigplanetnoise:

Ahhhh - good to know, Doug! Gotta see it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Gina Bacon:

I'm hearing great things, Doug. I hope to catch it while it's in town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Gina Bacon:

Avatar 9:48pm bigplanetnoise:

Longest, most killer intro ever!!!!
Avatar 9:49pm AlexClarkCaprio:

This USA sounds mono
Avatar 9:49pm bigplanetnoise:

It certainly is, Alex.
Avatar 9:49pm Mailman Tom:

I would've liked to have seen the United States of America release a 2nd album
Avatar 9:50pm bigplanetnoise:

Oh man - Mailman - if there was EVER a band that shoulda done a 2nd, it was USA. You could only imagine.
Avatar 9:51pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Bob, looks like I'm getting my record player / speakers the first weekend in May, this will be one of the first things I play - got a clear mono USA aching to be played
Avatar 9:51pm bigplanetnoise:

Alex - mono was promo only, and a dedicated mix.
Avatar 9:51pm Ronnie Dark:

This album is great!
Avatar 9:51pm AlexClarkCaprio:

The band Broadcast came pretty close to being a modern USA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Uncle Michael:

Hey, Doug.
Avatar 9:53pm bigplanetnoise:

Doug / Michael / Gina.... what a triumvirate!!! Kudos!!!
Avatar 9:53pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Broadcast "Pendulum"
Avatar 9:54pm Andy R:

I don't think I've ever heard of this group!
Avatar 9:55pm Julie P.:

How can it be almost 10PM already? We really need that third hour, Bob!
Avatar 9:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Which? Neighb'rhood Childr'n?!?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Doug Schulkind:

Salutations, Uncle.
Avatar 9:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Soon, Julie! I need to stop this 80-90/wk work thing first!!
Avatar 9:56pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Funny, I listened to all 3 WCPAEB Reprise LPs today
Avatar 9:56pm Julie P.:

Tell them you've got more important things to do, Bob! Who do I have to write? ;)
  9:57pm Jay S.:

Yep, the Childr'n.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Gina Bacon:

Try writing to the boss, Julie...some guy named Bob.
Avatar 9:58pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy - you need to hear that whole album!
Avatar 9:59pm Julie P.:

I'll work cheap! Gina - hahaha!
Avatar 9:59pm Andy R:

I really loved that tune, I'll have to get my hands on the albums!
