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.

Amazing story on the front page of the June 25, 1969, issue of Variety magazine: Discotheques Go-Go Into Oblivion As Juves Turn to New Kicks & Sounds. It surveys the various activities, like going to the movies, that turned young consumers from discotheques. "Another factor is the stress of listening values now accented by the rock groups. The great majority are no longer in the upper decibel realm. They have discovered that there exists a world of music and the beat is only one factor in a composition. Many recording groups are interested in aural acceptance rather than the wild drive that accented the rockers of the disco era." Later, it distinguishes "psychedelic ballrooms" like the Cheetah from "discotheques in the strict sense of the word [which are] operated more along ballroom lines." No byline.
Avatar 6:03pm Snayle:

the Studio 54 (as we know it) didn't open til the later '70s so the Cheetah had a head start on grooviness...

I must have made a face when I said, "but honey, I knew where they were before -" and she looked so crestfallen and sad I told her thank you your system is better and she got a hug out of it and saints preserve me I learned to spend 3x as mush time finding my records under my daughter's system (!)

Avatar 6:36pm Julie P.:

I pretty much just alphabetize everything except for a few favorites that get a separate shelf.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm coelacanth∅:

i like organising and cataloging my music collection...well - i *would* like doing that if i had 30 hours/day and 4-5 more days to play with

Jools - that's kinda how I roll... and then again.... depends on the day...
Avatar 6:36pm bigplanetnoise:

Clark - Fait accompli!
  6:37pm Eargasm!:

Snayle!!! I could never subcategorize mine like Bob!
Avatar 6:37pm Julie P.:

Eargasm, inflatable Cheetah pillows could be doable! I will look into it for the next show, because we all know there's gonna be a next show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm coelacanth∅:

if i had a big house i'd have built-in shelves (as i once had) and things would stay pretty organised.
Avatar 6:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - Gina likes my LP section that I have labeled as "color".....
  6:38pm Eargasm!:

They were advertised on the album jacket, Julie! No one has ever seen one. Bob and I have serious doubts any were ever manufactured.
  6:39pm Mark R:

George read the writing on the wall--he was gonna have to cross over if he was gonna ever make any real bread. Remember, he did that whole album of Beatles tunes, "The Other Side of Abbey Road"? I always liked him, though--jazz, pop or otherwise. Seriously talented guitar player.
  6:40pm CC:

I usually only keep about 10 to 15 feet of vertical LPs stacked up at my fingertips and I know where to go and I want something... when it comes to 45s...forget about it... you are going to make a mess!!!
  6:40pm SeanD:

Have to sign off -- thanks Bob & Gina!!
Avatar 6:40pm bigplanetnoise:

Mark - following Wes' lead....
Avatar 6:40pm WLSClark:

I asked for that--and I accepted it gladly!
Avatar 6:40pm bigplanetnoise:

SeanD - thanks for the hang!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Gina Bacon:

Great to see you, as always, Sean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm doctorjazz:

Benson actually started out with a fairly funky take on jazz, wasn't that big a jump to pop.
Avatar 6:42pm WR:

SeanD, you done good. After the 2nd time my 2 year old son pulled books off the shelves I made covers out of 1/4 inch plywood. Looked funky but was functional. And got him a book shelf of his own, sans cover.
Avatar 6:42pm Julie P.:

Saw George in the 70's when "Breezin'" and "This Masquerade" were getting heavy airplay. Very talented guy.
Avatar 6:43pm Snayle:

Jazzy BF took me to see George at Carnegie Hall - turned and was the first time he sang in 'public'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Gina Bacon:

He lived near my high school...it was always nice to see him driving his fancy car....a Rolls, if I remember correctly! He flashed that smile at me once.
  6:45pm Dean:

Man, I can't count the number of times I *almost* bought Benson's Abbey Road record. It just looked so cool, visually but also conceptually.
Avatar 6:46pm Snayle:

Please Go Loooong this is too much fun !!!

Avatar 6:47pm TDK60:

Well thanks so much Big Planet DJs...
Avatar 6:48pm Julie P.:

Cue the skating rink music!
  6:48pm CC:

Bob... did you ever do a show with nothing but strictly Northern singles???
Avatar 6:48pm bigplanetnoise:

CC - I have not. Yet.
  6:49pm Jay S.:

CC, Bob - that is a great idea for a show.
Avatar 6:49pm Snayle:

Roller or Ice, Jools ?
Avatar 6:49pm bigplanetnoise:

A B3 and a great guitar is my most fave coupling of sounds on the entire planet.
Avatar 6:50pm WLSClark:

Will Groove Holmes appear still today? I loved "Misty."
Thanks so much for a great show, Gina and Bob!
Avatar 6:50pm Julie P.:

Snayle, either one, but probably better for roller!
Avatar 6:51pm Julie P.:

Oh yes, I hear a Hammond B3 and suddenly I'm 17 again.
  6:51pm Dean:

So, Allman Brothers at Fillmore East?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Gina Bacon:

It is a good combo, bigplanetnoise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Gina Bacon:

Is that tonight, Dean! Sounds like fun!
Avatar 6:52pm bigplanetnoise:

More like Jack McDuff with George Benson!
Avatar 6:52pm WR:

It's been an incredible show. So many great funky Latin & jazz inflected recordings by wide wide range of artists famous and not so famous, all great.
  6:52pm CC:

Allman Brothers when I'm drinking 24 hours is okay with me!!!
Avatar 6:52pm Snayle:

hell to the yes... that's noise for the ages !
  6:53pm Dean:

Just thinking of B3 and *great* guitar. Also, do you know Deep Blue Organ Trio? Nice stuff.
  6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

Massive effort, Bob and Gina. I’ve been hanging on every beat!
Avatar 6:53pm bigplanetnoise:

WR - thank you so much. It's been a blast! I have to end with a song that has "psychedelic" in the title!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Gina Bacon:

Thank you, Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Gina Bacon:

Thans, WR!
Avatar 6:53pm bigplanetnoise:

Dean - I do not. But I'll look for it!
Avatar 6:54pm vanhooserd:

Groovy Blakey record, but you can't tell it's Art, which is unheard of.
Avatar 6:54pm Julie P.:

Can we please do this EVERY Friday?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm doctorjazz:

Blakey and Secret Agent a Man? Vey cool cover.
Thanks, Bob and Gina, lots of fun!

So many great songs I'd forgotten about, and cool covers of others. Thanks, Bob and Gina! Monday it is, and everyone remember Saturday is Gina's show!
  6:57pm Eargasm!:

Wish I could have been here for the entire show! I'll hit up the archive!

You did good.
