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.

  8:11pm Tim from LH:

The Gants are giving The Beatles a run for their money on this one!

Hey Richard! Kip!!!
  8:13pm ed nadorozny:

would have been nice if the gants did an lp of their own songs instead of doing lots of covers

Thanks BPN hey Gina!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@ed: The second Gants LP was a squandered opportunity. But Liberty Records A&R seemingly forced many of its artists to cover the hits of the day (cf. mid-Sixties Del Shannon) on their albums.
  8:16pm ed nadorozny:

my girlfriend was telling me a story of her brother and his friend
they were both punk rockers, and one time at the chucky cheese they ate some pizza that was on the table. i guess it was some dad's party and they got kicked out. ha ha ha they used to go to dightmans books to scare the religous people
Avatar 8:16pm coelacanth∅))):

i was hoping that harmonica solo would do the full "little child" solo
  8:18pm ed nadorozny:

went thrifting today. found a johnny guitar watson 45 on keen . its cool. i think its called denna or dianna . also some other ones that were not so cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gaylord Fields:

The Gants were so so so good at writing sideways Beatles songs, second only to Los Shakers in my estimation.
  8:19pm ed nadorozny:

yeah cant be los shakers
Avatar 8:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Deana Baby - I love that 45, ed!
  8:20pm ed nadorozny:

i wasclose
  8:21pm joedz:

great Knave track, remember that at one time this was considered to be an impossible 45 then some of them started showing up
  8:21pm ed nadorozny:

is that a b-side in inside outside or whatever its called
  8:21pm Eargasm!:

It seemed impossible for a while, joedz
  8:22pm Doug in Boston:

Drew Carey is following your lead -- he played the Seeds last Friday on his SiriusXM Freak-Out show.
  8:22pm ed nadorozny:

would be cool if someone did a hbr comp
  8:23pm Chuck:

Bob I expect that you know that Bob spelled backwards is still Bob!!!...(:
  8:23pm ed nadorozny:

the checkerlads had two more singles . another on gaitey records and one on rca international . one was called my time is coming
  8:25pm ed nadorozny:

the drummer from the checkerlads played with gene dlouhy and the swinging canadians . they had a couple of cool 45's on bangar and one on soma
Avatar 8:26pm Andy R:

Hey hey hey, everyone! Happy Monday, I was in a meeting that ran late, but I made it.
Avatar 8:26pm bigplanetnoise:

ed - thanks for the info! I knew about the Gaiety 45.
  8:26pm Eargasm!:

I love this single version of Astrologically Incompatible. It struck me as being the soundtrack to some James Bond film in an alternate universe when I first heard it, hahah
Avatar 8:27pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy!!! Glad you're here!!!
Avatar 8:27pm Gina Bacon:

  8:27pm ed nadorozny:

another strange one is the mark dennis IV who had an lp on coulee which is a trip. also had a 45 on bear records doing honeycomb. they do this cornball song called termites on the lp
Avatar 8:28pm bigplanetnoise:

Was there actual truth to all those weird stories and rumors about Bob Markley of the WCPAEB???
  8:28pm CC:

Gaylord...have you ever heard the rumor that John Lennon sat in with the Knickerbockers on the song Lies???

You had the Playboys, proper. That was an early Scott Walker band, recorded for the Rik label...

@Snayle: Cajun band the Mamou Playboys, for one. Los Lobos offshoot the Latin Playboys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Doug Schulkind:

There are about 117 cajun bands with Playboys in the name.
Avatar 9:00pm Gina Bacon:

  9:01pm Eargasm!:

The Birmingham Playboys who later emigrated to Romania and released that 10 inch EP

Speaking of movies, this weekend I chatted with Nicholas Hammond about his appearance in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood." He has many great stories from the production!

i always get a kick out of how they hate hippies on once upon a time... in hollywood yet they are listening to hippy songs on the radio. the guy that was the stunt man was modelled after a guy who was a real stunt man and also a professional wrestler
  9:03pm joedz:

Columbia if I remember correctly

  9:04pm eric:

It was such a nice surprise to hear Silver Apples after The Byrds!!
The drummer and co-founder of one of the first electronic rock bands, was Danny Taylor, a very close friend and collaborator.
He would have liked the idea of Silver Apples being played on WFMU!
There's a nice synchonicity on Silver Apples and WFMU.
Maybe I'll get to it later...

Uncle Mike - working on an entirely new platform this week. Struggling through it. And - well, I'll come close to that request for you.
  9:12pm eric:

Silver Apples was an electronic duo with Danny Taylor on drums and Simeon on a home made synth without a keyboard. A big influence on Kraftwerk, Can, The Cars, Blondie and many others.
On the back of their first album, there was a short sentence "Play twice before listening"
I asked Danny about that.
He said "Well, not everybody will be ready for this. So if you put it on at a low level and do some vacuuming for something or a while, it'll make more more sense later"

Good to hear that, Uncle Michael!

Unexpectedly worked to midnight and had forgot the true meaning of Monday until getting ready for bed at nearly 3AM. I took peek at the playlist and the comments. As they say back home, y'all had a ball. Just started listening from the archive during breakfast. Another fantastic show with fondly remembered classics and wild great tunes I don't remember having heard before. And GTD Doug is greatly exaggerating, there are fewer than 76 Cajun bands using Playboys in their name if you count only those that released 45s.
