It’s a pretty fast hour of music, with plenty of presents to go around the turntable. I want to thank all of you who send email or message me […]

Dangerous Music Ahead on The 3D RadioActivity

This is The 3D RadioActivity, and its’ time for songs about  hazard, a  portending image of peril, or an implication of harm that one may encounter.  The general word for liability to injury, either near at hand and certain, or remote and doubtful: to be vulnerable of being killed.  a menace that suggests something that […]

The 3D Lineup of Radioactivity

I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 3D RadioActivity, and on this episode we have yet another geometrical format.  If you have been playing along at home, we considered the musical interpretation of Fall which lead to down, up, round, around, circles, squares, and two different try – angles, which naturally brought us to lines. In […]

Taking it to the 3rD Power

Taking it to the 3rD Power

From Triplets, to Trilogies to the Trinity, here’s some great examples of the power of threes, and appropriately enough the prime number of The 3D RadioActivity as we show how the third time definitely is the charm.  Every track featured might have more than a duo and less than a quartet, as we try tri […]

The Try Angle of The 3D RadioActivity

We are looking at the try-angle in music, this time on The 3D RadioActivity. Not the Equilateral, Isosceles, Scalene and any other polygon with three corners or vertices and three sides or edges which are line segments. In somewhat of an obtuse manner, we will find the right way to approach this three dimensional idea […]

The Square Volume of The 3D RadioActivity

Sean is hiding as we are discovering the volume of squares this time on The 3D RadioActivity, as we see if it does go up to eleven to match the month. Do a websearch and you will find About 457,000,000 results for them. The diagonals are about 1.414 times the length of the side. This […]

Moving in Circles on The 3D RadioActivity

In music theory, this wheel of fourths or fifths is a visual representation of the relationships among the 12 tones of the chromatic scale, their corresponding key signatures, and the associated major and minor keys. More specifically, it is a representation in pitch class space.  In more mundane terms, an interior and an exterior, where […]

The 3D RadioActivity Gets, Messes and Turns Around

We have gone from Fall to down, up, and round, so the next natural progression is around which is how we will be spinning for you for this hour on The 3D RadioActivity.  I don’t think you will experience vertigo or get dizzy, however you can crack open some ginger ale or any other favorite […]

This week we are playing selections from Billy Preston, Counting Crows, Chris Isaak, Jimmy Page, John Hiatt, Thelonious Monk, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Mike Bloomfield, Odetta, Shawn Colvin and Yes.  So can you speculate what the common theme of this show is from those artists?  I am sure it will become evident to you as […]

The 3D RadioActivity Plays Up Music

The 3D RadioActivity Plays Up Music

This time on The 3D RadioActivity, we continue running with the previous themes. We have gone from Fall to Down so on this show we will be playing up music to investigate things over our head. Up can be an adverb, (your time is up) adjective (you’re up next), preposition (up the creek), a noun […]

The 3D RadioActivity Gets Down To Play

The 3D RadioActivity Gets Down To Play

This time on The 3D RadioActivity we are following up our tribute to Fall, moving in a logical fashion  by playing songs that really get down.  The dictionary describes this word in 16 different ways as an adverb, 9 distinct adjectives, and another handful of prepositions.  One different viewpoint is to consider it as an […]
