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.

Cars can be considered a symbol of an individual’s success, whether they are driving a Caddy, Lincoln, Ferrari, Mercedes, or even the almighty Volkswagen.  Big thanks to my good friend Radio Dave who provided me with a fine selection of automotive melodies, with over a thousand tracks to choose from.  We’ve played Car tunes twice before, covering nearly 70 numbers so far, and since the season is condusive to getting out and about, that’s what we’re doing this week on The 3D RadioActivity.

Welcome to The 3D RadioActivity, on this episode we are kicking off our Summertime Seconds with topics we will revisit, and spotlighting tracks that we didn’t get to in earlier spins around the turntable by playing songs that feature The ubiquitous percussive instrument, The Cowbell, which brings to mind the inevitable question of why do cows have bells? The answer is simple, because their horns don’t make noise.

I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 3D RadioActivity, and as I was listening to a Terri Gross NPR interview with a woman from Hibbing Minnesota who pointed out that their greatest export wasn’t iron ore, it was Bob Dylan. That hatched the idea to do a show called “Bob” which is what we are doing this time for you.
Did you know that the name Robert has more nicknames than any other male name? Consider: Bob, Bobby, Rob, Robert, Roberto, Robbo, Robin, Robbie, Bert, Berto and even more, unusual, variations. It’s the altered short form, a later development than the common medieval forms Hob, Dob, and Nob, all of which, unlike Bob, have given rise to English surnames. So they’re around. Everywhere. In fact, one survey says that there are 87,542 people in the U.S. with the first name Bob. More than 99.9 percent of those people are guys. According to the Washington DC Census Bureau, Bob is the 266th most popular Male name in the U.S, occurring 0.055% of the time. Montana has the most people named Bob per capita. 1934 marked the height of its popularity.

Shades of Dad

This time, we pay tribute to all the Daddys out there for Father’s day.  I’m Uncle Marty, this is  The 3D RadioActivity.  A dad is a male parent who has raised a child in most cases.  Traditionally, fathers act in a protective, supportive and responsible way towards their children. Involved men offer developmentally specific provisions to their sons and daughters throughout the life cycle and are impacted themselves by doing so.  A male role-model that children can look up to is sometimes referred to as a father-figure.  Other related terms of endearment are dad, pa, papa, poppa, pop, and pops. Daddy is an affectionate, familiar term, form of direct address, or nickname for a father. Popular in the Southern United States, Western United States and Ireland.  Not only is it the singular title of over six songs, Daddy also is the former name of the band Supertramp formed in 1969 before renaming themselves in early the next year.

When summer arrives, I will go back to the earlier shows to do more part twos and threes of themes that I have explored so let me know what your favorite ones were.

Before we get to that season, we have one more trip to take.  I was listening to an interview with a woman from Hibbing Minnesota to pointed out that their greatest export wasn’t iron ore, it was Bob Dylan.  That hatched the idea to do a show called “Bob”, which will also include Marley, Seeger, Wills, the Bobettes and even more, so that’s the direction we will head.

Just a reminder to go back and check out your favorite previous programs. You can find them all on https://archive.org/details/The3dRadioactivity, or more simply by looking on Facebook in the Photos section where you will find links to the shows and graphics for the more than 250 presentations we have brought you so far. While you are visiting, please don’t forget to give it a “Like” too, and be sure to leave us a note with any of your cool ideas.

You can look for us all over the web via TuneIn .com, and InternetFM too.

Thanks for dialing in, and we will “ear” you next time.  Rock On!

johnny-depp-jack-sparrowJack can be a given male name, a device like an electrical or phone connector, a tool used to lift heavy objects, the lowest face card in a deck of 52, a 1996 film starring Robin Williams, the United Kingdom national flag, a male donkey, a number of different species of fish, or trees, an unincorporated community in Coffee County, Alabama, an archaic unit of volume equal to two fluid ounces, a variety of cheese, and a fast food restaurant mascot. But wait, there’s more! I’m Uncle Marty, this is  The 3D RadioActivity, and Sean and I are back from our studio hiatus as this time we are going to tell you all about it musically, because many really don’t know Jack!

If you are checking it out, you will see what I mean. in five years the number of songs I have repeated are very minimal. Over  5,000+ individual tunes and 400 hours of production in 235 regular programs!
