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.

What is beauty or beautiful? The nature of beauty is one of the most fascinating riddles of philosophy. Is beauty universal? How do we know it? How can we predispose ourselves to embrace it? Nearly every major philosopher has engaged with these questions and their cognates, including the great figures of ancient Greek philosophy such as Plato and Aristotle.

It can be the smile of a child, laughter of a group of them playing in the park, a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses. However, they may not be necessary in order to obtain an aesthetic attitude: we can rejoice, in imagining a beautiful house that never existed; in discovering or grasping the details of a complex theorem in algebra, looking at a sculpture, some trees in bloom, or Manhattan’s skyline; tasting a mushroom risotto; feeling some fresh water in a hot day; listening to Puccini’s La bohème; and other music here on the 286th happening of The 3D RadioActivity.

This is The 3D RadioActivity episode Number 284, and this time we are completing our 3D trifecta ahead of the Belmont stakes and horseracings’ triple crown.  Recently we played songs about Here and There, so now, we will be going Everywhere.  Whether it be my studio, your house half way around the world or outer space and other realms beyond our atmosphere.  Everywhere is pretty big because it covers all areas the other two didn’t reach.  It could be called emotional, because we all know Love transcends all boundaries.

We do our best not to repeat ourselves, so every cut you heard has not been played on the program previously to keep things as fresh as possible.  Coming up it seems like BEYOND is a natural followup to HERE, THERE, and EVERYWHERE, and after that we will consider beauty before we go into our “Summertime Seconds” featuring “Part Two’s” of previous programs…  Tune in again next time as we explore more musical pop culture and 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.

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!”
