This week on The Award Winning 3D RadioActivity, and on this episode we are celebrating triple gold, Our 150th Show and in tribute to The London Olympics, Seanimal and I are playing songs about Sports! Music and sports are so intertwined it’s hard to imagine one without the other. The action on the field has a built-in sound track—a perfect score.
The ancient Greeks intently tied the performance of music to sporting events, particularly at their quadrenniel Olympic games. The use of music at sporting events is a practice that is thousands of years old, but has recently had a resurgence as a noted phenomenon. Some sports have specific traditions with respect to pieces of music played at particular intervals. Others have made the presentation of music very specific to the team—even to particular players. Music may be used to build the energy of the fans, and music may also be introduced in ways that are less directly connected with the action in a sporting event.
Tune in for 26 songs with over 100 minutes of music!
