I’m Uncle Marty, this is The 3D RadioActivity, and we are going to focus on a building block of time. In common usage, it is an interval equal to 24 hours. It also can mean the consecutive period during which the Sun is above the horizon of a location, also known as daytime. The length is usually measured from local noon to 24 hours later is called a solar day. Several definitions of this universal human concept are used according to context, need and convenience. In 1967, the second was redefined in terms of the wavelength of light, and it became the SI or International System of Units base of one sixtieth of a minute. The measurement for the duration called “a day”, was redefined as 86,400 SI instances. This is the event du jour, as we feature the music of the moment for an hour, Day After Day.
