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.

I must tell you, Mike Pender refused to sing Bumble Bee on my British Invasion tour. We became good friends, and he still refused.

Paul Jones' voice = unique and perfect. I know I always say it...
  8:31pm Jay S.:

The Tremeloes were very versatile - they could do doo-wop, psyche, glam and everything in-between
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Gaylord Fields:

It's curious hearing how many groups changed the lyrics to fit a male perspective and how many sang them exactly as the ladies did.
Avatar 8:32pm Sonny Rickles:

Didnt know this Stones great was a cover of a girl's song!
Avatar 8:32pm bigplanetnoise:

I agree, Jay!
Avatar 8:33pm bigplanetnoise:

Gaylord - it's sometimes pretty funny! Also - groups that covered the same some would often do them differently, too. Sometimes super-silly!
Avatar 8:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Sonny - Ella Mae Morse's version was their template!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Gina Bacon:

Good evening, Sonny!
Avatar 8:34pm bigplanetnoise:

The Shirelles' "well" was deep for the Brits....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Gaylord Fields:

Considering that well contained the likes of Carole King, Burt Bacharach, and, of course, Luther Dixon, it's no wonder it got heavily dipped into.
Avatar 8:39pm Snayle:

What was on the flip of this HH ?
  8:40pm Jay S.:

This is the b-side of Henry VIII
Avatar 8:40pm bigplanetnoise:

Henry VIII, Snayle.
Avatar 8:41pm Snayle:

Thanks - thought so.... I had it once upon a time, but alas it's long gone...somewhere in vinyl heaven.... sigh
Avatar 8:42pm bigplanetnoise:

Gaylord - Yes, esp Luther, I think... What a writer (and producer)... And the Shirelles' records just sounded tougher than a lot of other girl group's wax.
  8:43pm Eargasm!:

Good evening Bob and Gina!
Avatar 8:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Ringo's kick drum driving this ship, for sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Gaylord Fields:

  8:44pm SeanD:

Hey Gina! it's Sean from the wayback, tuned in from NYC
  8:44pm Tim from LH:

Great idea for a show. Digging it so far. They had to fill out the lps they were all cranking out back then. At least they were using great songs!
Avatar 8:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Eargasm! Great time yesterday with the FMU dudes! Hot chicken, cold beer, and piles of 45s!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Gina Bacon:

Hello, Eargasm!
  8:44pm Eargasm!:

It's been blasting in my short term bachelor pad! Finally got to check in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Gina Bacon:

Sean!!! Welcome!!
  8:45pm Eargasm!:

Great seeing you two and meeting new pals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Gaylord Fields:

And it seems Paul's bass is more prominent in the mix than typically allowed by the EMI labcoated crew.
Avatar 8:45pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Tim! Thanks! Glad you're here!!! Yes - the best kind of filler!
Avatar 8:47pm bigplanetnoise:

That Vee-Jay pressing sounds SO good. If you're lucky to find one that hadn't been played to death! It's never been sonically surpassed on ANY reissue, vinyl or CD.
  8:47pm Eargasm!:

You played Sandy's all time fave Searchers tune earlier. Funny he doesn't like it, hahahah
Avatar 8:47pm Mailman Tom:

It must have taken a long time to piece together tonight's fine program. Right, Bob?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Gaylord Fields:

As we were saying about not changing the lyrics... (Go on and rock that rag doll, Stevie!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gina Bacon:

I'm glad I could ambush y'all!
  8:48pm Eargasm!:

I agree 500 percent about the VJ pressing! I like it better than original Capitol pressings!

been listening the whole show while on the go! Great stuff so far!!
  8:52pm Eargasm!:

The Yardbirds cut 'Putty' specifically to placate Clapton. They thought it would keep him around if they recorded it.
  8:53pm Eargasm!:

obviously it didn't hahah

Stevie Wright can have any dolly he wants!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Gaylord Fields:

Hi, Glynis! You oughta do this exact show, but with all the original girl versions! (Kinda like "Who Wore It Better"?)
Avatar 8:55pm Sonny Rickles:

Was just listening to Mary Well's version yesterday. This one's nice too!
  8:56pm Jay S.:

Needles and Pins meets Motown...great stuff
Avatar 8:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Gaylord - I was gonna beg Glynis to do the same thing!!!
Avatar 8:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Yes, Sonny & Jay - this is such a great record!

Bob, I think you're the only other person I know of other than myself who specifically collects US pressings of British beat singles, though I know there must be dozens of us!
  9:02pm Jan Zed:

Y’all are killing me with these songs I used to hear on Radio Luxembourg! Haven’t heard many of these since the ... oh, lemme shut up. Great stuff!
Avatar 9:03pm bigplanetnoise:

I sure do - I've always been completely fascinated by them! We must compare notes, Gaylord!!!

I'm in for Beat Week, and I can speak for Matt Clarke, for whom every week is Beat Week!

That must have been an interesting program! I don't remember it playing in Boston.
Avatar 9:34pm Snayle:

Me too along with - Clay Cole & Where the Action Is !
  9:34pm SeanD:

Bass most often panned center as multitrack got started (with exceptions - I think the Jimi Hendrix Experience fooled around with that) so a mono mix wouldn't sound too different from a stereo mix... that said I think my computer monitor "soundbar" is boomier than the Auratones I used to check mixes with haha
Avatar 9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

I used to speak with him regularly a few years before he passed. Most all of the reels were lost in a fire. He had about 20 shows left. He had them transferred to video, and he was kind enough to send me a "best-of" VHS tape! Great memories! Playing piano in the windstorm with all the garbage blowing around!

The bare minimum! I would always check a mix by collapsing to mono and playing back very quietly... efficient sanity check for boomy bass or (much more often) out of control snare or hi-hat

Zacherley's Scary Tales LP had a trick track. I'm not aware of any other LPs which had this gimmick.

While I dig The Box Tops take (including the Doors reference tossed in) the goddamn Vanilla Fudge ruined "You Keep Me Hangin' On" for generations to come.
  9:52pm Eargasm!:

I didn't see this Girl From Ipanema cover coming!
  9:52pm Tim from LH:

Speaking of tricks, what have you got for us next week Bob? Any hints?
Avatar 9:53pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Señor Headache!!! Glad you heard the Doors reference!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Uncle Michael:

I love the lunacy of the Fudge's YKMHO.

Tim - next week will be the most personal show we've ever done!!!! Somewhat insane, but heartfelt and 100% truthful!
Avatar 9:54pm bigplanetnoise:

And a little scary. To me, at least.
