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  #289, and on this episode we will be musically distinguishing the difference between a town, burg, municipality, borough, or township; A big city or metropolis usually has associated suburbs and exurbs. These are usually associated with metropolitan and urban areas, and if it expands far enough to reach another, this region can be deemed a conurbation or megalopolis , because there is no real boundary, it’s all city to city.

I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 3D RadioActivity  #288, and on this episode we are playing songs which will show that You Still Don’t Know Jack, the name that is unique in the English language for its frequency of use as a verb and a noun for many common objects and actions, The Encyclopædia Britannica article on the history of the word “jack” linked it directly to the common name: “a word with a great variety of meanings and applications, all traceable to the common use of the word as a by-name of a man.”  It’s used in many compound words and phrases, e.g.: apple jack, hijack, jack of clubs (playing card), jack tar, jack-of-all-trades, jack o’lantern, jackdraw, jackhammer, jackknife, jackpot, lumberjack, and jack straw.

A while back I was listening to a Terri Gross NPR interview with a woman who noted that the biggest export from Hibbing Minnesota wasn’t iron ore, it was Bob Dylan. That gave me the idea to do a show called “Bob” which we did on program # 237. Since we have crossed the June solstice, we are back with new shows from old themes, calling it Summertime Seconds. I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 287th adventure of  The 3D RadioActivity, as we will be serving up a few more slices of Bob for you.

We’re back with more of Summertime Seconds, where we return to previous themes to track the cuts that we weren’t able to squeeze in the first time around the turntable.  Got any suggestions?  Be sure to let me know!  Send email, or leave a message & a “Like on our Facebook page  which has links to the archives of all the earlier episodes and graphics in the photo section.

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.

Well, we have done it again, making it not only through our selected Beautiful music, we are wrapping up the first half of the year before embarking on a short vacation before returning with Summertime Seconds, where we will feature Part Two programs as we return to previous themes to track the cuts that we weren’t able to get in the first time around on the show.
