This is the landing page for posts, commentary, and analysis that doesn’t fit any of our usual subjects of Sports, Entertainment, Music, or the Home Improvement show. That doesn’t mean this is a pile of junk.  Until we have more content for pre-defined subjects, this will be the catch-all page.

I’m Uncle Marty, and this time on The 3D RadioActivity, we are coming to your rescue with music that will save you from the holiday earworms.   Rescue comprises responsive operations that usually involve the saving of life, or prevention of injury during an incident or dangerous situation.  Tools used might include search and rescue dogs, which is why Sean is on my squad to help us with this mission.  There are all sorts of perils that can be harmful and necessitate assistance like in  Caves, Combat, Confined Space or Mines, Ski patrol and many more.  Sonic recovery is our mission, to help remove the sound of jingling bells and other ringing in the ears for you.

I’m Uncle Marty, and this time on The Award Winning 3D RadioActivity, we are paying tribute to a special group of people who plucked, fingered, blew, and pounded many familiar melodies. When we first checked out these cats, my friend Rich was here with us, and we managed to cover not even half of the performers who employed them.  This time I have another guest sitting in with me…  The affable host of Time Warp Radio, and our resident traffic expert, Bart Shore!

The Wrecking Crew is a film about the best musicians in Los Angeles before, during and after the 1960′s.  That was the nickname coined by drummer Hal Blaine for a group of studio and session entertainers that played anonymously on many records in Los Angeles, during that decade.  According to Blaine, the name was derived from the impression that he and the younger studio artists made on the business’s older generation, who felt that they were going to wreck the music industry.  They backed dozens of popular singers, and were one of the most successful groups in history.  You can learn more about this documentary and where to see it by visiting the website http://wreckingcrewfilm.com/

The 3D RadioActivity Plays The Wrecking Crew Again!
The members were versatile and typically had formal backgrounds in jazz or classical music. The talents of this group of “first call” players were used on almost every style of recording including television theme songs, film scores, advertising jingles and almost every genre of American popular music.  Notable artists employing their talents included Elvis along with other favorites like Frank and Nancy Sinatra, Bobby Vee, The Partridge Family, The Mamas & the Papas, The Carpenters, The Monkees, Bing Crosby, The 5th Dimension, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, The Beach Boys, and Nat King Cole. They were among the inaugural “Sidemen” inductees to the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in 2000.

Next week we will be wrapping up the month of Dog-ust with a big bow as we play terrier tunes and other choice canine cuts!    If you have any ideas please be sure to let me know.

On this episode of The 3D RadioActivity, we are playing songs by artists who have more than one first name. You are probably saying to yourself, “Self, What is Uncle Marty talking about?” Well, let me tell you. All of the artists on the show have what is considered a different kind of bond to create this theme, their last name could be their first, which can be confusing to some folks whose life is based on logical order. A given name, in Western contexts often refers to as a first name, is a personal name that specifies and differentiates between members of a group of individuals, especially in a family, all of whose members usually share the same family name (surname) or last name. Like your brothers Tom, John, and your sisters Catherine and Sue. It is purposefully given, usually by a child’s parents at or near birth, in contrast to an inherited one such as a family name that you all share. With those details in mind, we will be featuring artists who have two first names, as their family surname is also a common given name. Every artist this time has a common first moniker as their last we feature music on a first name basis as every artist would be most likely to answer if you called them by either. You get the idea, and if you don’t, you should be able to by the end of the show.

Dwight-HowardFor the ZERO of the week, how about Dwight Howard?   In what has become commonplace, once more he’s deciding where he wants to play next season.   He does not like playing in LA, because he wants to be ‘the main guy’, but he also wants there to be other really good players on his team so he can win a title.     When he got traded to LA last year, many picked them to make a serious run for the title, joining other Centers, (Wilt, Jabbar, Shaq), who won titles after being traded/signing with the Lakers.    But he was a total flop, despite still being one of the most talented, gifted players in the league.   And he sealed his reputation by getting thrown out, (intentionally it looked like) from their final playoff loss against San Antonio.     Maybe he should play with the Clippers, so he could join last week’s ZERO, Doc Rivers.

On a better note, we’ll choose ESPN as the Hero of the Week.  Most of you have probably seen this awesome, awesome video, Going Home.   Through the years we’ve seen tremendous clips with soldiers returning home, and surprising their family by meeting them at sporting events, always a nice thing to see.   So ESPN did a collection of some of the best ones.  The one I have here is longer than what I’ve seen so far, both on ESPN AND Fox News.    It’s so good, that Fox News, (and some other networks I’d guess) have shown it, giving credit to ESPN .     I will do the same, choosing ESPN as the HERO of the Week.  No better time than July 4th to show this!
