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.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Uncle Michael:

That' so cool. What was the context?
Avatar 8:35pm bigplanetnoise:

Zan - all the 60's mags tagged it as "rock-folk" early on. I want to get us back to it!

Great band, Tim!

Phil-period GR or Grill period? I can't pick.

OK, Gina. I love the pretty stuff like this. But - next set, start to hand me the oddballs....
  9:09pm Eargasm!:

I haven't played the Joyful album as much as their others.
Avatar 9:09pm Dominick:

This LP was one of my faves back in '69. Gotta find me a copy.
Avatar 9:09pm Gina Bacon:

Ok, good, Bob.
Avatar 9:09pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - Joyful is def my fave.
Avatar 9:10pm Gina Bacon:

Ready to get weird!
  9:10pm Eargasm!:

Time to dust it off for a spin!
Avatar 9:10pm Gina Bacon:

But...this sure is pretty.
Avatar 9:11pm bigplanetnoise:

Dom - I'll keep an eye out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm WR:

Ok, that was not the plan. BPN show starts and work calls with customer emergency. Wasn't too bad just took an hour but I had to turn down the MUSIC to the point I could barely hear it while on the phone with the customer. Weirdly the one song that I could clearly hear was On The Road Again, but that is probably because it is fully imprinted in my DNA and need only a hint to start hearing it. And I have no idea of what everyone is having for dinner. Lots of comments to catch up on.
Avatar 9:13pm Gina Bacon:

Welcome back, WR!
Avatar 9:13pm Julie P.:

Actually, WR, we haven't talked about food yet!
  9:13pm Eargasm!:

Such a fantastic single by George.
Avatar 9:14pm bigplanetnoise:

ooooh - sorry, WR. But we definitely need to kick the food-yap into high gear.... Anyone????
Avatar 9:14pm coelacanth∅:

Yay! George!
Avatar 9:14pm Gina Bacon:

I love this song so much.
Avatar 9:14pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - agree 10000%!
Avatar 9:14pm Andy R:

I had some great carnitas tacos tonight.
Avatar 9:15pm Gina Bacon:

Sounds great, Andy.
Avatar 9:15pm Julie P.:

I got nuthin' tonight - did a microwave dish so I wouldn't have to cook.
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

OK, Andy. Good start. Carnitas and Monkee-speak. Good one.
  9:15pm CC:

Elmore James got nothing on this baby!!!
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - I'm with you. No time for chow yet....
  9:17pm Eargasm!:

Not here either. We ate out all weekend and stayed in tonight to chow. Simple hamburgers.
  9:19pm CC:

chili dogs with wolf brand chili and Mexican grated cheese always works!!!
Avatar 9:19pm bigplanetnoise:

CC and Andy - thanks. Now I'm starving.
Avatar 9:19pm coelacanth∅:

chapter 3 might be my favorite Manfred Mann album
Avatar 9:20pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - it's just so great. I kinda regard it as a different band of course, but really great for sure.
Avatar 9:21pm coelacanth∅:

yeah very different
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

Oh Captain, my captain.
Avatar 9:22pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah yeah, Uncle Mike. Every week, please.
Avatar 9:22pm Dominick:

Oh yeah!
Avatar 9:22pm Gina Bacon:

Yes! Every week.
Avatar 9:24pm Andy R:

My Favorite Zappa tune, right here.
Avatar 9:24pm Snayle:

Avatar 9:25pm bigplanetnoise:

This is the MONO version, just out on Black Friday on a 10" picture disc!!!!
Avatar 9:26pm Snayle:

OOOH ! Nice ! What's on the pic ?
Avatar 9:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Frank's mug, in Hot Rats pink!!!
  9:27pm Tim from LH:

One type of record I don’t have in my collection, a picture disc.
  9:27pm Eargasm!:

Hahaha! I think this was the first Zappa Record I ever owned. Either this or Absolutely Free.
Avatar 9:28pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim - gotta tell ya. It might be my only pic disc!!!
Avatar 9:29pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - my first was Ruben & the Jets. It was so confusing to a ten year old. But - now I want to hear it. I just may play something from it tonight.
  9:29pm Eargasm!:

Maybe thee most underappreciated Bosstown Sound album. Such a great record.
Avatar 9:30pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah - it's so good!
  9:30pm Eargasm!:

That record confused me too. But I grew to love it!
Avatar 9:31pm coelacanth∅:

absolutely freeeeeee was the only Zappa album i knew for many years (older brother had it) and several songs on that might qualify as my favorite Zappa tune...
but then, the second disc of uncle meat could be it
Avatar 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - it's nearly impossible to pick. My fave seems to be whatever I'm playing at that time. Right up to like Grand Wazoo, or so. Or Waka Jawaka, even.
Avatar 9:32pm coelacanth∅:

(cd reissue that is..."uncle meat film excerpt part 1")
Avatar 9:33pm Snayle:

Freak Out was my intro to FZ - I bought it with my own $, and we played it during art classes - very inspiring. :)
Avatar 9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Snayle - the coolest.
Avatar 9:34pm coelacanth∅:

it's true Bob. i really don't like playing that game anyway...unless i don't really like an artist very much - then it's easy!
Avatar 9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - who is the easy artist for you?!?!?!?
  9:35pm Jay S.:

Nice transition from the last song into SAC
Avatar 9:35pm Andy R:

First FZ I owned I was Overnite Sensation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm WR:

Phluph was totally unknown to me until just now. Not that I know every record but I was fairly focused on any thing even vaguely psychedelic 67 to 72 and don't remember every seeing their record.
Avatar 9:35pm bigplanetnoise:

Ahhh - Jay - thank you for noticing!!!!!!
  9:35pm CC:

I couldn't help thinking about Frank's song about an Enema Bandit when I learned that he died of colon cancer!?!
Avatar 9:36pm Gina Bacon:

Cool, WR!
Avatar 9:36pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy - you got to work backwards! What a treat!!!
@WR - it wasn't exactly the most colorful record in the bins!!!! Dark green and..... black!!!!
Avatar 9:36pm vanhooserd:

I had a friend who sought out the "weird".That's how I first heard Zappa, Beefheart, Biff Rose, Lenny Bruce, Lord Buckley...and Monk.
Avatar 9:37pm Julie P.:

WR, Bob pulls a lot of groups out of the hat like that!
Avatar 9:37pm bigplanetnoise:

Has anyone glid?
Avatar 9:38pm coelacanth∅:

trying to trick me into insulting someone Bob?!
Avatar 9:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Steve Hillage has!!!
  9:38pm Dolemite:

Avatar 9:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - absolutely!!!!
Avatar 9:38pm Gina Bacon:

I have never glid. At least I don't think so!
Avatar 9:38pm Gina Bacon:

  9:39pm Eargasm!:

This band was out there!
Avatar 9:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Dolemite! Have you ever glid???
Avatar 9:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - I keep loving their albums more and more and more and more and
  9:40pm Eargasm!:

It took me a while to climb on board, but once I got there I was all in.
Avatar 9:41pm Snayle:

Saw Hillage on a fest in Hyde Park - Supercharge, Steve Hillage, Kiki Dee and Queen;; he was the odd mellow man … indeed.
  9:41pm Dolemite:

I have gliddy gloop gloopied. I am ashamed to publicly admit it.
Avatar 9:41pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - tequila helps.
Avatar 9:41pm Mod Mokka Matti:

Wow, you two are still kicking out the jams - I lost my cell connection whilst on our walk, so it looks like I'll be visiting the archived show later.
Avatar 9:42pm bigplanetnoise:

Matti - it's good to have you back.
Avatar 9:42pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Mod Mokka Matti! Hope you had a nice walk!
Avatar 9:42pm coelacanth∅:

okay...i think the specials are okay. not bad, but the only song i make a point to listen to is "ghost town", which i love.

-your turn!
Avatar 9:46pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - The Newbeats. Not a speck of their vinyl at my place. Makes me want to fight.
Avatar 9:47pm coelacanth∅:

-but is there one song you like?
  9:47pm Eargasm!:

Talk about a rare one...
Avatar 9:47pm bigplanetnoise:

Avatar 9:48pm Mod Mokka Matti:

@Gina, yes we did have a good walk - the rains are coming back starting tomorrow, so we'll be confined to indoors for much of this week, I fear. I'm not a big fan of walking in deluges in the dark, though as a native of the PNW, I've done my share.
Avatar 9:48pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - gifted to me from Ken Erwin of the band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Doug Schulkind:

If I'm going thru hell, I'd prefer to be tripping.
Avatar 9:48pm bigplanetnoise:

Doug - if you gotta do it, do it with a dot.
  9:49pm Eargasm!:

I raise my glass to you!
Avatar 9:49pm Gina Bacon:

I'll bet you have, Mod Mokka!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Doug Schulkind:

Making music underground sounds like a good plan during a Minnesota winter.
Avatar 9:51pm coelacanth∅:

oh no! i think mdma is the drug to have for hell. you might even like it! but at the very least you'd appreciate it!
Avatar 9:51pm bigplanetnoise:

Way down under the ground. Even Barry Melton agrees, Doug.
  9:51pm Tim from LH:

So Bob and Gina, in two weeks your show will be on Christmas Eve Eve. Any kind of Christmas Spectacular planned yet?
  9:52pm Eargasm!:

I remember hearing it first as a psycho reissue and it sound like something was missing to me. They pressed it single channel just like the Music Emporium hahah
Avatar 9:53pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim - it'll be our 4th annual "Christmas Not Christmas" show. Where - and folks here can attest - I grab a bottle of Patron, work it hard, and head to the record room. It's the strangest show of the year. And always my fave!!!!
  9:53pm Eargasm!:

Last years was sooooooo great!
  9:54pm CC:

This Barry Melton song has a very Shawn Phillipsy feel to it!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm WR:

G T O !!!! What else is there to say?
  9:54pm Dolemite:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Uncle Michael:

Did I hear some Firesigns? The door knocker bit?
Avatar 9:54pm Gina Bacon:

Yes! Looking forward to that ride!
Avatar 9:54pm bigplanetnoise:

Hahahaha! It's true - after a few shots of Patron, every single thing I hear sounds wonderful, AND I want to hug EVERYONE!!!!
Avatar 9:55pm Gina Bacon:

Hahaha! You did!
Avatar 9:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Dolemite and Uncle Mike - YES - just a snippet!!! Thanks for noticing!!!
Avatar 9:55pm Mod Mokka Matti:

I've never heard this before, but the title alone certainly is catchy.
Avatar 9:56pm bigplanetnoise:

FOR YOU, EARGASM!!!!! (and me!)
  9:56pm Dolemite:

Don’t wolf your food! ....Use your entrenching tool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Uncle Michael:

Noticing? I have a Ralph Spoilsport Motors license plate fame on my car.
Avatar 9:56pm Dominick:

Avatar 9:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Isn't that bridge built yet???
  9:57pm CC:

I'm only sad because you guys can't go an extra hour..!..sigh!!!!
  9:57pm Eargasm!:

I love this record! I hear Zappa was quite the Doo Wop collector and aficionado
Avatar 9:57pm bigplanetnoise:

Awww - CC - thank you! Soon!
Avatar 9:58pm bigplanetnoise:

I love the way he hammers the guitar solo at end!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm WR:

I listened to Cruising many many times trying to decode what I thought must be encoded there and finally realized that except for some twisted lyrics here and there it is what it is. A great pop rock album.
Avatar 9:58pm Snayle:

If you leave me, can I come too ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the music, B&G! Night all.
Avatar 9:58pm Gina Bacon:

This is just so great.
Avatar 9:59pm coelacanth∅:

if i'm around on xmas eve i'll obtain a bottle of tequila (probably not patron) and join you
Avatar 9:59pm bigplanetnoise:

C'mon, Snayle - room for all!!!!! ❤️
  9:59pm Eargasm!:

You can hear the doo wop influence throughout his entire career
Avatar 9:59pm Gina Bacon:

Excellent, coelacanthø!
Avatar 9:59pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - Do it!!! on the 23rd!!!
Avatar 10:00pm Gina Bacon:

Night, Uncle Michael!
Avatar 10:00pm Julie P.:

I will definitely be listening on Christmas Eve Eve. Meanwhile, two hours has once again flown by!
  10:01pm Eargasm!:

This was a fantastic show!! The short set was a killer!
Avatar 10:01pm Andy R:

A wonderful show, as always!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Doug Schulkind:

I adore this Lee Morgan record. I adore this radio program.
Avatar 10:02pm Julie P.:

More artists I have to go in search of. Bob, you are a "bad" influence.
Avatar 10:02pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Bob!Thanks Gina!
take care y'all
