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.

Ultimately, Bobby had more say than anyone, because of his position with Sony-Columbia.

Avatar 8:53pm huomenta:

corpacanth@8:44 what you said. (except newer computers let alone high sierra are unknown to me) Try and find a linux variation for your liking if you ever get tired of apple letting you down. I who had no idea about the difference between a mac and a pc before I enrolled on a music tech course, have learned enough to use linux for everyday computer use.Especially nice when you want to breathe lfe into some old pc or mac that does not obey the newest regiment as it were
Avatar 8:54pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim & Coel - no, we're switching over to the Drummer stream. A little more flexibility in what we'll play, the ability to do more three-hour shows, etc. We love the programming on Drummer and we very much wanted to be a part!
  8:55pm Tim from LH:

It’s all WFMU and that’s all that matters

If all Christmas not Christmas shows in your archive have similar vibe and range as this show, I be relying on them for soundtrack for all seasonal gatherings. Hip enough for those who can appreciate but still welcoming to the rest of the folks.

Avatar 9:07pm Snayle:

Will BPN Archives still be here, in the old same place Or will they cross McArthur Park and walk into a great sandstone building ?
Avatar 9:07pm bigplanetnoise:

WR - that's amazing - I did the exact same thing.
  9:08pm JohnP:

Horn band freakout!
Avatar 9:08pm bigplanetnoise:

Snayle - all will stay the same. Only thing changing is where you'll find our show each Monday eve. On Drummer, one hour later.

YAY ! Cool, Thanks! ( I wonder where Ruth is.... )
  9:10pm Eargasm!:

Is it me or is there more than a wee bit of Gin and Orange going on tonight? Albeit a bit more intense.

Snayle - Ruthlessly!

Thought the same Eargasm! Cocktails poured...

Speaking of Gin and Orange, Bob when will it be back?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Uncle Michael:

Beatles every not-Christmas!
  9:11pm Eargasm!:

Very much the compliment! I'm loving this!
Avatar 9:12pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - unsure. I asked to do a G&O show the first Sunday in February, but have not heard back yet......................... No matter what, I'll do it someplace!!!!

As long as it pops up somewhere!
  9:13pm Mod Mokka Matti:

@bigplanetnoise: Oh, good thing I just scrolled up to see earlier bits of convos. I was not aware that you two were leaving the Ichiban. It won't be too much of a challenge to get to the new location - I already listen to Mr. Grogan's show on GTD. :-)
  9:13pm Tim from LH:

Is this Beatles for Mrs. Irwin?
Avatar 9:14pm huomenta:

coelacanth: I know this is gonna sound like water is wet: but if it is a refurbished 2010 mac w/high sierra, I (who claim not to be an expert on any field) might say: yes, you could have some performance issues there. Linux can be frustrating on your own with no know-how (I can tell you I have been there!), but in case you can get some friendly assistance, linux can be quite rewarding too - and mind you, at the end of the day, I still admit I hate computers and the digital age.
Avatar 9:14pm Julie P.:

Tim, that was my guess as well.
Avatar 9:14pm bigplanetnoise:

Mod Mokka - oh yeah - a simple flick. Our link will bring you right to it! Spread the word!

I'm over there on Saturdays, Mod Mokka Matti!
Avatar 9:14pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim - not yet - coming right up though! Reminds me of being a little punk kid in the kitchen while the AM radio was on and my mom was singing along. Next up!

Hyvää Joulua Mod Mokka Matti ja terveisiä Suomesta!
  9:15pm Doug Schulkind:

On Monday evenings preceding Big Planet Noise on the Drummer Stream there is another fantastic show. Global Grease, airing 7-9pm (eastern), is hosted live from Louisville, Kentucky, by Kim Sorise. It will make one helluva radio tag-team!

Small amusing factoid: I have a set of married cousins whose names are Shirley Jones and Jack Jones. No, not THE Jones.

Well, it surely is good company you'll be keeping (bee keeping?). (clears throat)

Jack Jones seems to have influenced my all-time fave Scott Walker quite a lot; anyone in the know - where should I start with his discography?

Avatar 9:22pm bigplanetnoise:

huomenta - you are 10000% correct. On the ballads, it's sometimes hard to differentiate.

Big Planet Noise will make the, gulp, 25th program on the Drummer Stream. Multiple shows every day of the week. All with live commenting playlists and archives, just like you know and love.

Hi Sandshell!
Avatar 9:24pm bigplanetnoise:

Sandshell!!! Thrilled that you're here!!! What are you baking?!?
  9:25pm Mod Mokka Matti:

@Gina: That's right! I think I belatedly discovered your weekend show, but haven't had much opportunity to listen yet, trying to juggle way too many things. It seems I only know what day of the week it is by what DJ is on!

@huomenta: Hei! Hyvää Joulua! BTW, I happened to be listening to some of the programs over on YLE, just before I came over here tonight. I think I'm listening to as much Finnish radio as I am of WFMU. At some point, maybe by immersion, I'll finally start to learn more of the ancestral tongue, after so many years of trying... :-)
  9:25pm Tim from LH:

Lots of Brazilian sounds tonight. Bob, are you on a plane to Rio after the show?
Avatar 9:25pm Julie P.:

huomenta, start with the "Wives and Lovers" album and then "Where Love Has Gone." Those two should get you started.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Gina Bacon:

That's what the archives are for...thanks, Mod Mokka Matti!
Avatar 9:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Tim - honestly - it always reminds me of the holidays. And - I love it all.

uncle michael, love boat theme is all I have had for the last 35 years or so when I heard it and realised the performer was someone called Jack Jones, but thanks, this gave me a warm smile on my face ;)

Made my special Christmas sauce and braciola today. Tomorrow Manicotti.
  9:30pm JohnP:

I know that voice anywhere... BB!!
Avatar 9:30pm bigplanetnoise:

Coel - yes - Jim played drums on that!
  9:30pm Mod Mokka Matti:

Speaking of Scott Walker (who I really appreciate a lot). I'm really interested in that new Ace Records compilation of Scott performing Jacques Brel, that I saw them promoting on their Instagram feed.
Avatar 9:30pm bigplanetnoise:

Sandshell - Try not to disturb Mr. Manicotti upstairs!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Uncle Michael:

MMM, I did a three hour Scott special earlier this year when he passed.
Avatar 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

JohnP - that voice AND that guitar!!!!!!
Avatar 9:33pm huomenta:

mod mokka matti, cool to hear about you and yle. What a pity it was so much better back whenever, even with rather limited broadcast time. I mean I was a 80s preteen whose head exploded when hearing Gun Club and Einsturzende Neubauten from our humble national radio service - at the risk of sounding like a boring old fart (won't deny) I really can not imagine that happening nowadays. Which is why I am glad there stations like wfmu to give me new musical finds every day
  9:34pm JohnP:

Yes! And Lucille has her own voice too!!!
Avatar 9:35pm bigplanetnoise:

JohnP - playing the next one for you....
  9:36pm JohnP:

can't wait.. !!
Avatar 9:37pm huomenta:

I recently found out from spotify there was a collection of Scott Walker's tv performances there - audio only, sadly, and not too good quality. But then again, all the original material is gone, no picture, just off-air sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Uncle Michael:

That's a very new release, huomenta.
Avatar 9:41pm huomenta:

I heard it like a month ago or so.I am surprised anything exists from that period.
  9:42pm JohnP:

I hadn't heard that one... funky..

If you have Jimmy McGriff in the playlist, then I sense that you may need some of "the other" Jimmy of the B3...

Mod Mokka - that "other" Jimmy gets a lotta love from us, for sure!!!!

Uncle Michael, sorry I did NOT mean that one - it is called Live On Air 1968-1969, do check it out if you already have not! Mod Mokka Matti, the youtube stuff you mentioned could be this?
  9:52pm Mod Mokka Matti:

@BPN: I'm glad I got to see Jimmy Smith in person when he came through Seattle, nearly 20 years ago, even if it was well after all the great albums. I was seated just off to his LH side, and perhaps at one of the tables closest to him, when he appeared at Jazz Alley (his "Dot Com Blues" had just been released then).
Avatar 9:52pm huomenta:

sorry Uncle Michael, I noticed your links only now, drunken finhers on a tablet screen are not that fast.:,-)
Avatar 9:52pm Julie P.:

So, if anyone is up late tomorrow night, I am tentatively scheduled to assist a friend of mine with a radio show of the wackiest Christmas music we can think of. This foolishness can be streamed on wprk.org from 11PM-1AM Christmas Eve. Cross your fingers - I haven't done this in a long time!
Avatar 9:52pm bigplanetnoise:

And just so you all know, Gina and I plan to kick things right in the butt hard on our first Drummer show!!!!! January 6th!!!!!
