Years ago, I was listening to Fresh Aire on NPR with Terri Gross as she did an interview with a woman who pointed out that Hibbing Minnesota’s greatest export was Bob Dylan, not iron ore. That spawned the concept to do a couple of shows called “Bob”, and another pair titled “You Don’t know Jack”. As I was digging my teeth into the first one, I realized that the formal version is Robert, as in Plant, Johnson, Cray, Gordon, and Palmer, along with a NASCAR driver, a questionable woman, and physician. From that research we came up with a tribute, which comes from the name Hrodebert meaning “bright fame”, derived from the Germanic elements hrod “fame” and beraht “bright”. This is The 3D RadioActivity # 368 as we get into something with these brilliant folks.
My six siblings and I refer to ourselves as The Magnificent Seven, which is also my favorite prime number so that will be our efflorescent focus next time.
