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.

Been waiting for this show all week. Hey there, that Stones Pic you got there is the best!. That's gotta be from late 66? 67?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Sean!
Avatar 8:08pm Mailman Tom:

That photo of Brian and the band is new to me too!

Avatar 8:09pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks, Sean! Yeah - it's cool one. '66 I think.

Good Evening Buckaroos ! Finally got aboard the pony and ready for a great ride tonite down to Monterey! Yeehaw!

Avatar 8:11pm Sean B.:

Hey Tom. Love any Stones pic that has Brian looking at Mick like "get the he'll outta my way!" with that grin like "you ain't me man!" Lol. So classic.

Avatar 8:12pm bigplanetnoise:

I LOVE that Vox teardrop....
Avatar 8:14pm Mailman Tom:

The movie, Monterey Pop, is better than the Woodstock movie, IMO. I have the DVD set which includes the outtakes. In it, you can spot some of the performers in the audience when they're not on stage!
  8:15pm Eargasm!:

Hello guys!
Avatar 8:15pm bigplanetnoise:

I agree, Tom. Although I've come to like Woodstock more than I used to.
Avatar 8:16pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Paul!!!!! Glad you're here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Gina Bacon:

Hey, Eargasm!
  8:16pm Snayle:

The comment box locked up and hung up on me... :( Howdy Sir Bob and Lady Gina !! Love this Butterfly tune....
Avatar 8:17pm Sean B.:

Beautiful guitar. I had in my possession a 1965 Vox Royal Guardsman Amp. With 2 Bulldog 12s , the stand & the whole 9 yards. I sold it for 700 after 5 years in 1990. Yes. ..I'm an idiot. Lol. Oh well.
  8:18pm Eargasm!:

Great record by the Crystal Rain!
Avatar 8:18pm Mailman Tom:

They used In-a Gadda-da-Vida to good effect in the movie, Manhunter. It preceded the more famous movie, Silence of the Lambs.
Avatar 8:19pm bigplanetnoise:

We've all done that, Sean. I had two Voxes way back when no one cared. Sold them under peer pressure from the band I was in. Later, Andy Babuik of the Chest. Kings got me a '65 Mark VI teardrop, British made. Still have it.
Avatar 8:22pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah - Eargasm - Love the Crystal Rain 45! Sounds like Iron Butterfly - obviously!
  8:24pm Eargasm!:

Many times you've said its a short walk from the Music Machine to the Iron Butterfly!
Avatar 8:25pm Sean B.:

Nice. A friend of mine gave me a 65' Magnatone 441 bass amp which serves as my amp now. It's great to have musician friends like that man!.
Avatar 8:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - it sure is! You like Music Machine, you HAVE to like the Butterfly!
Avatar 8:27pm Mailman Tom:

Did Cliff Richard & the Shadows ever tour the USA?
Avatar 8:27pm bigplanetnoise:

Sean B - those are the bestest friends ever!
Avatar 8:28pm bigplanetnoise:

Jeez, Mailman Tom - great question. Not that I ever ever heard of.... Anyone?
  8:29pm Snayle:

I did see Cliff at the Savoy in NYC - early '80s.... he was slick and pretty cool ...
Avatar 8:29pm Mailman Tom:

Hank Marvin was one hell of a guitar player!
Avatar 8:30pm bigplanetnoise:

No one, no one, no one, sounded like Jeff Beck, esp on THIS track
  8:30pm Eargasm!:

Yes he was!
Avatar 8:30pm bigplanetnoise:

Cliff was pretty slick in the 80s!
Avatar 8:30pm bigplanetnoise:

Hank Marvin was/is amazing. Flat out.
Avatar 8:31pm Sonny Rickles:

ah, there they are!
Avatar 8:31pm bigplanetnoise:

Yep - there they are!!!!!
  8:35pm Snayle:

ah, nice to hear some Easybeats that's not Friday on my mind!
Avatar 8:35pm Sean B.:

I can't complain...but sometimes I still do. Saw Jeff Beck once in 91 or 92 open up for Santana. He flipped me. No pick...barely any effects. His slide playing at one point sounded like a female opera singer. Simply stunning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Matt Clarke:

Good evening!! Glad I stumbled in as one of my favorite Easys song is on!
  8:36pm Eargasm!:

Jeff beck makes it look way to easy
Avatar 8:36pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Matt!!! Welcome!
Avatar 8:37pm Mailman Tom:

Were the Rattles from NYC?

Hey Matt!. I don't know where Debbie finds all of you. But it's been more than a blessing to me!.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Matt Clarke:

Yes Los Shakers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Matt Clarke:

Hey Sean B!
Avatar 8:40pm bigplanetnoise:

I've really come to love them. I blew them off for so long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Matt Clarke:

They are one of the top beat bands in my ears
Avatar 8:41pm Mailman Tom:

Thanks for the info, Bob!
Avatar 8:44pm bigplanetnoise:

A guy that never gets his due.
  8:44pm Snayle:

Avatar 8:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Played a show in upstate NY a few years ago. All of a dozen folks showed.
  8:47pm Snayle:

wow. that's tragic. so sad! ... and that Trinity..with Julie Driscoll...amen.
  8:48pm Eargasm!:

Love the Los Shakers lp's! The Uraguyan Beatles!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Matt Clarke:

We are lucky to have you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Matt Clarke:

@Eargasm: Agreed! Top band! Melodies are totally up there with the great ones
  8:49pm Snayle:

and just wanted to say thanks, Godspeed & RIP to George Cameron. Any Left Banke tonite ?
Avatar 8:49pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks, Matt! Appreciated!
Avatar 8:50pm Sean B.:

Avatar 8:50pm bigplanetnoise:

Not tonight, but boy - that one hurts, Snayle. We worked with both George and Tom on our reissues.
Avatar 8:52pm bigplanetnoise:

Do I lose everyone on the soulish sets? How everyone feel about those????
  8:52pm Snayle:

Yeah so sad...Seemed like a wonderful guy... Man, you sure worked with so many greats ! Wow. Hugs and Hearts to all... :(

This is awesome
Avatar 8:52pm bigplanetnoise:

How DOES everyone feel about those?

Love the Soul, Bob! Especially great Stax trax like this!
Avatar 8:55pm Mailman Tom:

To tell the truth, I could do without the soul senders on this show.

I am listening while attempting to alphabetize my 45s. God help me

More Rufus and Carla!
Avatar 8:57pm Sean B.:

Bo was king. I have completely immersed myself in early 60's soul at and for a long time in my life. When I realized that it was a never ending well...so much great stuff. It really never ends. Nor does it get old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Matt Clarke:

The well is deep that's for sure
Avatar 9:00pm bigplanetnoise:

So deep.

When anyone could rewrite a song with new lyrics and not have to worry about an army of lawyers knocking at the door

Killing it with this Soul set. Damn.
  9:06pm Eargasm!:

Great soul set.
Avatar 9:07pm bigplanetnoise:

Amazing, Eargasm.
Avatar 9:07pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks, Sean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Matt Clarke:

Whatta screamer!
  9:14pm Eargasm!:

I love the fact this was also released as a single from the The Id's album. Someone thought this had big hit potential at RCA!
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

I think they were just trying to get some of their money back from the master purchase.
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

But - I do love that album.
  9:17pm Eargasm!:

Fabulous album.
  9:18pm Eargasm!:

Probably still looking to recoup their money!
Avatar 9:19pm bigplanetnoise:

I'm sure. For that time, they paid an astounding amount of money for the record. For that time.
Avatar 9:23pm Sean B.:

"Hey that's Spirit". Nice. It's great that the only two guitar players Jimi ever plugged in interviews were Randy California and Billy Gibbons. Go figure. To be alive and be able to pick that mind for a while.
Avatar 9:24pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah. Jimi took Randy right under his wing. Randy told me some amazing stories about that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Matt Clarke:

The best Airplane
Avatar 9:25pm bigplanetnoise:

best Airplane.
  9:25pm Eargasm!:

Agreed, Matt. I never get tired of that record.
Avatar 9:26pm Mailman Tom:

Butterfield was incredible. Got to see his band twice during '69-'70.
Avatar 9:27pm bigplanetnoise:

i KNEW you were gonna say that, Mailman Tom! You saw all the greats, man.
Avatar 9:29pm Mailman Tom:

I saw Big Brother and the Holding Company at the Fillmore East back in the summer of '68. Thanks for rekindling the memories!
  9:30pm Snayle:

Love the first BB&HC album... this tune in particular.. oh Mailman Tom - you surely did see all the COOL bands ! Wow!
Avatar 9:30pm Sean B.:

Bloomfield could be so lazy of a sounding guitar player. That's what his trademark is to me sometimes. Like he was just saying "I can play like this and you can't, so I'm not going out of my way to be a perfectionist". Love Mike so much.
Avatar 9:31pm bigplanetnoise:

me too. so much. effortless.
  9:32pm Snayle:

Where do you find all these cool Epic Bands ? What's that Kak story?
Avatar 9:32pm Mailman Tom:

I have the Kak CD. They were one of last true psychedelic bands from SF.
Avatar 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Such a shame he was so very chased by demons.
Avatar 9:33pm bigplanetnoise:

Snayle - this one magnificent LP from '68. Bay area.

Hey Jay! Yes - and a great one, I think!
Avatar 9:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Ha! Glad you're still here, Andy! And thanks for the thumbs-up on Cal! I love his stuff so much. It's sometimes to get a decent segue into it or out of it, but.... ah... who cares?!?!!!!!!
  9:44pm Snayle:

Time won't let me part deaux
Avatar 9:44pm bigplanetnoise:

sure is!
  9:44pm Jay S.:

Gotta love when bands blatantly rip off their own big hit
Avatar 9:44pm Sean B.:

His playing on Dylan's Desolation Row is the only perfect complement to Bob's surreal and prophetic lyrics and beautifully rough vocal delivery.. Can't ever imagine the finished product better than that , thanks to Mike.
Avatar 9:46pm bigplanetnoise:

I agree 100% Sean.
Avatar 9:46pm Mailman Tom:

I saw Mike Bloomfield at the Matrix in SF back in the summer of '73. We were in the front row!
  9:46pm Snayle:

is this an alternate version ? sounds different tonite or am i losing it?
Avatar 9:47pm bigplanetnoise:

Single version, Snayle. Unique to the single. The LP is way different. This was the hit!
Avatar 9:47pm Sean B.:

Now I hate you Tom. Lol.
  9:49pm Snayle:

Ah, whew. I love the LP version... this one, just sounds so ... not sure I ever noticed difference on my 6 Transistor General.
Avatar 9:49pm Mailman Tom:

Bloomfield opened for John Cipollina and his band, Copperhead. A magical nite!
