3D RadioActivity

Uncle Marty and The Seanimal host The Award Winning 3D RadioActivity. We have over 100 feet of vinyl in the collection, and well over 100,000 song files on the hard drive. Each week, a different topic is chosen, sometimes seasonal, and songs are played that cover the idea. We present you with interesting bits of information about each song or the artist, adding the extra dimension for your list…ening enjoyment. All forms of music, from Acoustic to Zydeco. Just about anything between 20 Hz and 20 kHz.

Once again we are playing songs that peaked in the #1 position in Billboard magazine, the international publication devoted to the music industry, one of the oldest trade periodicals in the business. It maintains several charts that track the most popular recordings internationally in various categories on a weekly basis. These have existed for pop, country and R&B, since 1946, with additional album listings for each style debuting for the next twenty years. The two big ones are their 200, for LP sales, and the Hot 100, which ranks the top 100 tunes regardless of genre. At the end of the year , they chronicle the best tracks of the past 12 months as determined by the journal, based on radio airplay, digital sales, and internet streaming data. Sean and I expect some serious head bobbing, heart throbbing and toe tapping to be happening on this episode, so let’s keep the party going here on The 3D RadioActivity.

On this episode we are spinning cuts that are part of the compendium known as Rolling Stone Magazine’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, and every song is one that we have not featured on the program before…  Which really says something because we have played well over 5,000 numbers in our nearly 250 shows, and we always try not to repeat ourselves.  I’m Uncle Marty, along with Sean and we think you will really enjoy it because after all, this is The 3D RadioActivity.

This time on The 3D RadioActivity, we kick off A is for August, Accolades and Awards as we are playing artists who are all members of The Blues Hall of Fame and most likely a little bit more for you. This is a musical form and genre that originated in African-American communities in the “Deep South” of the United States around the end of the 19th century from spirituals, work songs, field hollers, shouts and chants, and rhymed simple narrative ballads. Ubiquitous in jazz, R&B along with rock and roll, it’s characterized by specific chord progressions, of which the twelve-bar version is the most common. The notes that, for expressive purposes are sung or played flattened or gradually bent (minor 3rd to major 3rd) in relation to the pitch of the major scale, are also an important part of the sound. As a genre it is based on that form but possesses other characteristics such as lyrics, bass lines, and instruments. Sub-genres include country, such as Delta, Piedmont, Texas, and urban styles like the Chicago and West Coast varieties. World War II marked the transition from acoustic to electric and the progressive opening to a wider audience, especially white listeners. In the 1960s and 1970s, a hybrid rock form evolved.Photo: The 3D Blues Hall Of Fame II<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> https://archive.org/downlo

MOVE – it is a transitive and intransitive verb which can mean to budge, dislocate, displace, disturb, relocate, remove, reposition, shift, transfer, or transpose. The Origin comes via Middle English, from Anglo-French mover, moveir, from Latin movere; probably akin to Sanskrit mivati he moves, pushes. The First Known Use was in the 13th century. A while back, we did show #109, at the request of my dear friend Debbie from Ambrosia Euro American Patisserie  in Barrington IL who suggested that I do a show that really moves. If you go there and mention The 3D RadioActivity, you can be sure that they will treat you like family, as they do for everyone. That’s one of the things that makes Ambrosia a very special place. I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 3D RadioActivity, and on this episode we will focus on the second movement.
