Presidential Seal of Approval on The 3D RadioActivity

I’m Uncle Marty, this is The Award Winning 3D RadioActivity, and for being the shortest month of the year, February sure has a lot packed into it.  February is American Heart Month, Black History Month, National Bird-Feeding Month, and it celebrates Grounhog day, Paczki Thursday, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and the birthdays of two of […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” by The Allman Brothers Band

The studio version of this Dickie Betts original appeared on their 1970 album “Idlewild South.” The title of the song was inspired by a headstone Betts had seen while hanging out at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia…the very same cemetery that provides the final resting place of both Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Consoler Of The Lonely” by The Raconteurs

It’s been way too long since they released their last studio album a few years ago for this Jack White-led band featuring singer-songwriter Brendon Benson and members of The Greenhornes. I’ve been a member of Jack White’s Third Man Records’ record club which is a subscription service since its inception and every few months you […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Everyday I Love You Less And Less” by Kaiser Chiefs

Seven years is a lifetime in the music industry, and so it goes for Kaiser Chiefs. Their debut album, “Employment,” hit the shelves in 2005 giving fans a collection of taught exhilarating early XTC-inspired songs harking back to late ’70s New Wave and Punk Rock. They have released three subsequent albums to less acclaim especially […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Making Plans For Nigel" by XTC

I had my iPod at the New Year’s Eve party I attended this evening and at one point we played the XTC album “Black Sea.” Now I was fortunate to see them on tour in 1980 behind that album and little did I know at the time that it would be their last tour ever […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "A Case Of You" by Prince

Prince has got balls! Here he attempts to bring his own special flavor to a cover of a Joni Mitchell classic that originally appeared on the album “Blue.” His version is interesting and certainly carries his own soulful stamp on the proceedings. The recording was part of the “A Tribute To Joni Mitchell” album that […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "The Other Shoe" by F*&#d Up

The only thing F*&#d Up about this record is that I only heard it for the first time last week and as a result it did not make my Top Albums List Of 2011…and it is certainly good enough to be on the list. This Canadian Punk band has been around since 2001 releasing a […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "The Jean Genie" by David Bowie

Here’s the long lost Top Of the Pops live clip recorded on January 3, 1973 featuring Bowie and the Spiders From Mars. The clip was said to be lost and recently rediscovered. It received its first broadcast in England since it originally aired back in 1973 on December 21, 2011. Glam rock never sounded so […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Groove's Groove" by Richard "Groove" Holmes

        Song Of The Day – “Groove’s Groove” by Richard “Groove” Holmes Like fellow Jazz organ giants Jimmy Smith, Brother Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff, Holmes released countless organ-drenched Soul Jazz sides during the 1960s paving the way for Acid Jazz and Hip-Hop. Here is the edited 7″ version of this song […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Trees" by Isham Jones & His Orchestra

I first came into contact with this song in a rendition by Alfalfa on “The Little Rascals.” This version hails from 1930 by the Chicago sweet band led by Isham Jones. Jones was a cold taskmaster of a bandleader which is kind of at odds with the sweet music he made with his group. At […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Swingin' Dem Jingle Bells" by Fats Waller

          Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Swingin’ Dem Jingle Bells” by Fats Waller What more could you ask for on Christmas than this rambunctious reading of “Jingle Bells” from 1936 by the larger than life pianist extraordinaire Fats Waller. Meld that with a fine holiday Betty Boop video […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – "Unrequited Love" by Lykke Li

          Song Of The Day – “Unrequited Love” by Lykke Li It’s a little bit 1950s Doo Wop ballad…a little bit early ’60s girl group…and a whole lot up-to-the-minute 2011 indie pop. Lykke Li hails from Sweden where she was born Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson in 1986. She released her debut […]
