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.

This is The 3D RadioActivity, and when people ask me who my favorite sports teams to watch are, I have been known to say that I prefer to go see music instead of a ballgame, because at the end, some people are going to be unhappy with the results, however when B.B. King plays, everybody wins.  Well, that cannot be said anymore, since the passing of the great blues musician.  We have a special Memorial Day tribute to commemorate this man who had a lifelong affair with Lucille.  Back in the day, he was at a gig when an altercation escalated to the point where the venue he was playing at caught on fire.  He risked life and limb to run back in to rescue his guitar, and later on he learned that the men were fighting over a woman who went by that name.  That is why he gave his Gibson 355 that moniker, so I guess you could say that all of his tunes were duets.  This time we are commemorating him by visiting several of his works that he recorded with other friends.

This is The 282nd episode of The 3D RadioActivity, as this time we check out how one particular word in the English language is full of problems like the one presented by there, their and they’re. It is not to be confused with the contraction or the possessive adjective. Most native English speakers pronounce these the same way (the words are known as homophones); therefore, it is difficult for some to determine which spelling to use. Each means a very different thing, and it is important to communicate clearly and correctly in written correspondence and in business or academic writing. Let’s consider the use of there when referring to a place. either concrete “Look Over There”, “over there by the building” or more abstract ~ “it must be difficult to live there”.   We also use there with “to be” verbs, as in there is or there are. Other uses include: adverb ~ She is there now; pronoun ~ There is no hope;
noun ~ I’ll introduce you, but you’re on your own from there on; adjective ~ Ask that man there; interjection ~ There! It’s done; Idiom ~ been there, done that…
So let’s take heed of the words used by great philosophers ranging from Buddah, and Confucius to Firesign Theatre or Buckaroo Banzi ~ “Remember, wherever you go, there you are!”

We do our best not to repeat ourselves, so every cut you heard has not been played on the program previously, so when we go here again, I have plenty to go around, whether it’s from a different version of Here Comes The Sun, Between Here And Kingdom Come or From Here To Eternity.  That one is further down the road, next time we won’t go HERE, we will go THERE, which will eventually lead EVERYWHERE.  Please remember that we can be easily contacted with your ideas & suggestions!  Do drop an email or leave a message & a “Like ” on our Facebook page where you will find links to the archives of all the earlier episodes and graphics in the photo section.
