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.

Mailman - say it ain't so!!! Where are you?!?!?

One thing I enjoy about Summer nights around here is blasting these kind of tracks in the car with all the windows open!
Avatar 8:08pm Gina Bacon:

Hey, Mailman Tom!
  8:08pm Jay S.:

The only thing I did at the beach was go to the casino - there should be a Beach Boys-style song about that
Avatar 8:09pm Julie P.:

I'd send you some of this Florida heat if I could, Mailman!
Avatar 8:09pm bigplanetnoise:

Made for car-blasting!!! There was a time - way back when - in the early days of record shows - where they all but gave this stuff away....
Avatar 8:09pm Gina Bacon:

I used to walk down to the boardwalk at Seaside.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Matt Clarke:

One of the greatest songs known to man!
Avatar 8:12pm bigplanetnoise:

When I went to one of the very first NYC record fairs - in 1977 - I asked at every table for The Sunrays LP. Almost all the dealers were like - "Why do you want THAT???" It remains one of my most favorite LPs of all time. Twee as it is, I love it through and through....
  8:12pm RandyF:

Mailman Tom Might be Upstate NY !!! Thinking about starting a small fire while listening !!! Elm Street checking in !!

Hey guys, great as usual !!

Avatar 8:15pm TDK60:

Hello. In my old town, the high school greasers were into the Four Seasons, and the collegiate types the Beach Boys; both groups didn't like us longhairs with our Dylan and such. One day, the mean leader of the greasers changed his hair from his '50s style pompadour to long hair! (due to hearing the Stones shocked everybody. but I digress..
  8:15pm RandyF:

48 degs this morning !!!
Avatar 8:15pm Gina Bacon:

TDK! Great story!!!! Our hometown was too small to have factions, right Randy F??? Everyone was sort of shuffled together - but the cool kids had Beatle boots!!!!
Avatar 8:16pm Julie P.:

RandyF, double that and you've got Florida!

  8:20pm Tim from LH:

Someone could be Wake surfing right now on Lake Hopatcong, they could use this show as their soundtrack!
  8:20pm Eargasm!:

It's cool to be hanging five with you guys tonight! Tuned in at 7 and checked in at 7:20!

Well, the East Coast waves aren't much to write home about, either . . .
Avatar 8:25pm Mailman Tom:

I remember watching the Lloyd Thaxton Show. Also enjoyed the Clay Cole Show.
  8:25pm Eargasm!:

Although there were some great east coast surf bands!
  8:26pm joedz:

I hate to admit that I remember the Lloyd Thaxton show, didn't know he recorded as well. Very cool!
Avatar 8:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Where The Action Is, right into The Lloyd Thaxton Show. Whatta time!!!!
Avatar 8:27pm TDK60:

Lloyd Thaxton?! Didn't he have a syndicated LA TV rock show in the '60s? I saw The Byrds on there once and I was shocked because they didn't lipsync but had amps and mikes, playing live!
Avatar 8:27pm bigplanetnoise:

Well, we were REALLY little kids, right Joe???
  8:27pm Eargasm!:

This is one of THEE shows I've been waiting for you to put together, Bob!
Avatar 8:28pm bigplanetnoise:

TDK - yeah - the Thaxton show was 100% amazing. Sadly, most of the episodes were lost to a fire. Only a few survived....
Avatar 8:28pm bigplanetnoise:

Cool - thanks, Eargasm!!! I could do an easy 30 episodes!!!
Avatar 8:29pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - I was saying before that in the early days of collecting, no one really cared about most of these 45s....
Avatar 8:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Has everyone gone swimming?
Avatar 8:34pm Julie P.:

I had a few of them - "Wipeout" comes to mind - but I started buying albums early on.
Avatar 8:34pm TDK60:

..just recalled more on that Thaxton show: Byrds did "She Don't Care About Time," and one other probably.
  8:34pm AlanM:

Hey Bob & Gina! This is the music I grew up with living iin So. Calif (Santa Barbara). Still love it and takes me back to those very cool, simple times. There were surf bands playing in garages all over town!

Shocking Blue for your weekly requirement of Nederbeat
  9:07pm Jay S.:

Wayne had a natural voice for this genre
  9:07pm joedz:

I understand that 90% of the vocal on this is Bruce and Terry and about 10% Wayne.

Ive never heard this one, haha! Sandy picked up on who it was immediately!

I second that notion, Bob!

@Julie P. I saw Wayne in LV about 15 years ago, and his voice was absolutely shot, like nothing-in-the-tank gone! He literally brought in a Wayne Newton impersonator to sing his high-voiced hits while he croaked the Vegas schlock.

Love ya, Debbie!
Avatar 9:14pm Julie P.:

Wow, Gaylord, that's sad.
Avatar 9:14pm bigplanetnoise:

Gaylord - that's wild. I just thought he could still sing like mad...
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm- I 100% promise you I will remind you to tell me that story!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Gaylord Fields:

It was perhaps the worst vocal performance I've ever heard from someone who used to have a fine vocal talent.

Avatar 9:17pm Gina Bacon:

That's so sad.

Wayne has been essentially retired for most of the last 10 years.
Avatar 9:18pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Gaylord Fields:

I just felt bad for Wayne, and worse for me (because of the ticket price).
Avatar 9:19pm bigplanetnoise:

Jay - I would imagine he remains comfortable....

Gaylord Fields or Dave the Spazz. Ichiban has me all confused....
Avatar 9:19pm Snayle:

That's so sad Gaylord... He had a Great string of Arabian horses...once upon a time... And I guess a great voice too....
  9:20pm Jay S.:

He's had a ton of financial problems. It really is a sad story.

Somehow, I've never heard this Beach Boys song before.
Avatar 9:20pm bigplanetnoise:

Pat Boone, anyone????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@Jay S.: That must have been hard for him to finally let go when he realized he lost it. His handpicked impersonator was pretty good, however.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you, sir.
Avatar 9:21pm Julie P.:

That makes two of us, Andy R!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: It's really easy to tell us apart. I'm the guy with the snake on his face.
Avatar 9:21pm Gina Bacon:

Hey, Uncle Michael!
Avatar 9:21pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy - BB's first 45.
Avatar 9:22pm Andy R:

The only Pat Boone I have in the collection, that I'm aware of is his Christmas album on 4 Track reel to reel tape. Came in a lot auction.
Avatar 9:23pm Snayle:

And Pat Boone was Ozzy Osbourne's neighbor... Hilarity ensued...
Avatar 9:23pm bigplanetnoise:

All I have is his great surf 45!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Uncle Michael:

I didn't hear the snake on the amusing Ichiban promo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar 9:23pm bigplanetnoise:

Snayle - really?? How crazeee!
Avatar 9:24pm Gina Bacon:

Oh, wow, Snayle. That must have been interesting!
  9:25pm Tim from LH:

Well we just had a luau, will we be having a Clam Bake by the end of the show?
Avatar 9:25pm Julie P.:

Bob, I think there is actually a Wayne Newton Christmas album at the shop!
Avatar 9:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Hahahaha! No Clam Bake tonight, but I sure have played it before!!! My fave Elvis tune!!!!! That, and "Slicin' Sand"!!!!!
Avatar 9:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - I have no doubt that there's some Wayne in the shop!!!!
Avatar 9:28pm Julie P.:

One of my fave Elvis tunes is "Spin Out"! "Clambake" is a lot of fun, too, especially that scene in the movie!
  9:29pm Eargasm!:

Id have loved to have heard Wayne owned a string of poloponies!
Avatar 9:29pm bigplanetnoise:

Funny, Julie - I like all the wrong Elvis movies, too! The mid-60's flex rule!
Avatar 9:29pm Gina Bacon:

Love that Clambake scene!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Clambake is my fave go-go sequence.
Avatar 9:29pm bigplanetnoise:

Can you hear Lou Reed on this one?????
Avatar 9:30pm Gina Bacon:

  9:30pm Doug in Boston:

Tiger in my tank from when Exxon was Esso.
Avatar 9:30pm bigplanetnoise:

  9:30pm Jay S.:

Got my tiger tail on my antenna.
Avatar 9:30pm Julie P.:

I saw "Clambake" at the drive-in! Those were great date movies!
  9:30pm Eargasm!:

I didn't know was issued as an Epic single! I know it from the budget comps!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gaylord Fields:

Speaking of Terry Melcher, if I hear a particular BB's-sounding record performed by a certain brother group from Utah, I just might plotz, as my people say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gaylord Fields:

Or any other Bobby Darin–penned tunes of that ilk.
Avatar 9:33pm Julie P.:

No plotzing allowed, Gaylord! We've already got a lot of sand to clean up! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@Julie P.: But I brought a bucket and a shovel.
Avatar 9:34pm Julie P.:

Number Nine is the wave you want to catch when you're surfing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Uncle Michael:

I'm glad other people went to poloponies so I didn't have to.
Avatar 9:35pm Andy R:

I think so much of what I love about these records is they're so joyful. They have amazing sounds, and they make you feel better about life. This has been such a great show tonight!
Avatar 9:35pm Julie P.:

Hahaha, Gaylord! We need a heavy duty shop vac tonight!
Avatar 9:35pm Gina Bacon:

Thank you, Julie!!! They come in 3's, right?
Avatar 9:35pm bigplanetnoise:

Gaylord - I'm trying to figure it out.... Not the City Surfers.... Um....

greetings Gina, Bob, big planet people
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm CHUCK ROAST:

Hey Ho B&G...enjoying one last breath of spring here in Glen Burnie, MD. Lows in the fifties tonight. Still digging the summer theme of this show, though.
Avatar 9:36pm bigplanetnoise:

Thanks, Andy!!! I'm especially happy we got a smile from you!!!
  9:36pm Doug in Boston:

Roger Christian's voice had better pipes than his hot rod on that record!
Avatar 9:36pm Gina Bacon:

So glad, Andy! ❤️
Avatar 9:37pm Gina Bacon:

Hey Chuck Roast!
Avatar 9:37pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Chuck Roast - we're gonna bring summer in, kicking and screaming if we have to!!!!!
Avatar 9:37pm Gina Bacon:

Hey coelacanth∅!
Avatar 9:37pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey coelacanth∅!!! Thanks for being here!!!
Avatar 9:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Doug - his voice had more muscle than his hot rod!!!!
Avatar 9:38pm Julie P.:

Gina, there are all kinds of theories. but when I was surfing, the lore was that the waves would get increasingly bigger, and the ninth would be the largest so therefore the one to catch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm CHUCK ROAST:

As long as there's AC ,I 'm good.
Avatar 9:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Interesting, Julie!!!
Avatar 9:39pm Gina Bacon:

That makes sense, Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Uncle Michael:

Gina, every track with internal combustion:

Avatar 9:40pm Gina Bacon:

Vroom vroom, Uncle Michael!
Avatar 9:41pm Julie P.:

Of course, here on the FL East Coast you don't get too many large waves unless there's a big storm coming, which is when they tell you it's not safe to go out!
Avatar 9:42pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - I've surely been knocked around on Cocoa Beach a few times!!!!
Avatar 9:42pm Julie P.:

What a great version of "Every Day"!
Avatar 9:42pm bigplanetnoise:

Terry Melcher!!!
Avatar 9:43pm Julie P.:

So you know what I mean, Bob! And of course there are always the sharks to consider . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Matt Clarke:

Ok laundry done! Hang ten!
Avatar 9:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Damn laundry!!!!
Avatar 9:44pm Julie P.:

Tubular, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@bigplanetnoise: No, not the City Surfers (i.e., McGuinn & Darin). Do you know the Osmonds' very BB-sounding two-sider of "Mr. Sandman" b/w the Melcher-Darin composition "My Mom"? Both sides are corkers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Uncle Michael:

Hey, Matt.
Avatar 9:45pm bigplanetnoise:

Gaylord - I do not!!! But now I'm on the lookout!!!!!

@Matt Clarke: I have a gift from the land of records and cheese from Jon Von to give you (and it ain't roquefort)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Matt Clarke:

Love this acoustic guitar sound
Avatar 9:48pm Julie P.:

This is amazing! What year is it?
Avatar 9:49pm bigplanetnoise:

  9:49pm Doug in Boston:

My best buddy was knocked out hearing this single on the acetate CD. I tried to trick him at first by saying it's Ricky Nelson, but he didn't fall for it.
Avatar 9:49pm bigplanetnoise:

Doug! That's so funny!!!
Avatar 9:49pm Gina Bacon:

Avatar 9:49pm Julie P.:

It sure does sound like Ricky, doesn't it!
Avatar 9:50pm Gina Bacon:

Records and cheese!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Gaylord Fields:

Gina, both are round, both give you pleasure, and sometimes both have holes in them.
  9:51pm Jay S.:

Nice garage sound on this one
  9:51pm Eargasm!:

Why have I never heard this Arwin single before????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Matt Clarke:

You gonna visit the UK surf scene next week? Love this theme
Avatar 9:52pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - Produced by Kim Fowley!!!
Avatar 9:52pm bigplanetnoise:

Matt - we're going to the movies next week!!!!!
  9:53pm Jay S.:

Slick: an automobile tire made without a tread for maximum traction (as in drag racing)
Avatar 9:53pm Gina Bacon:

That sounds like a riddle, Gaylord! Good thing we already know the answer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Matt Clarke:

Avatar 9:53pm bigplanetnoise:

Jay - Gum-dipped!!!
Avatar 9:54pm Julie P.:

Is that the soundtrack show you mentioned on G&O? I love soundtracks!
  9:54pm Eargasm!:

Loved that one! Another one to the want list! It never ends, haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Gaylord Fields:

Records and cheese are always the correct answer!
Avatar 9:55pm Gina Bacon:

Avatar 9:55pm Julie P.:

Eargasm, if you needed to write a quick song back then, you could always sing about your car.
Avatar 9:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - different for G&O - I usually filter some weird soundtracky things into G&O. Next week, we just all go to the movies - in 1965.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Gaylord Fields:

Matt, I'll bring it to the station on Friday when I'm there for the Fine Wine soul dance.
Avatar 9:55pm Gina Bacon:

That Fine Wine Soul Dance Sounds like fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Gaylord Fields:

Gary Zekley every week!

Fine Wine & Cheese party?
Avatar 9:56pm Julie P.:

Yay! '65 movies, can't wait!

You are a hero Gaylord! Merci!
