3 Things We Love about Comedy Radio

laughing 3 Things We Love about Comedy RadioWho doesn’t like to laugh? Other than the Scrooges of the world, pretty much everyone just likes to laugh and have fun; it’s a much better alternative than crying as a way to exercise those facial muscles. This basic human need to let go of the day-to-day humdrum and have good belly laugh is the number one reason why comedy has been a booming business worldwide.

You experience comedy anywhere you go and every day of your life—when you’re riding the bus, you might overhear two young teenage boys cracking jokes to each; when you get home, you turn on the television and you see that a sitcom is on; you flip the radio on and hear the DJ wisecrack about something and you suddenly burst out laughing. Comedy is an intrinsic part of our lives; comedy radio is just one side of the comedy spectrum, but it’s a direct infusion of comic relief that you can access instantly thanks to the advent of Internet Radio and readily available Internet connections.

Comedy has been buzzing over the airwaves since the invention of the radio and had its heyday in the pre-television years with shows like “Amos and Andy” and “The Jack Benny Program”, but is still alive and well today, albeit in a different format. Stand-up comedy is the norm now, rather than the serial-type comedies of yesterday. Think about it: when someone cracks a joke and you ask them where they heard it, you almost always get the same answer—they heard it on the radio. So what is it about comedy radio that everyone loves so much?

Choosing Workout Music

Workout Music

It is natural that you have some favourite songs that you listen to when you work out or exercise. Music can be good for relaxation, but by choosing songs with the proper tempo and beat characteristics, it also makes your heart beat faster and makes your body more willing to undergo the physical stress of exercise. Exercise is pretty much like dancing; who would like to groove without music? The same principle applies when you work out.

If you are a music lover, music is connected to every aspect in your life. You might have a favourite song for whatever activity you’re doing: waking up, cooking song, dropping off to sleep, driving and so on and so forth. If you love exercising and working out, then it just follows that you have a song or two for that as well.

3 “Top 40” Songs for Exercising

  • Keri Hilson & Lil Wayne – Turnin Me On
  • Hey Monday – Homecoming
  • Benny Benassi & Channing – Come Fly Away

These are all relatively new songs with a common characteristic: their upbeat tunes (which is the reason why a lot of people are choosing these songs as their favorites for working out). These songs help them to keep on moving and give them the push and motivation that they needed. But aside from these things, these songs offer something more which will be beneficial for their health.

The biggest advantage of mixing music with your workout is that up-tempo music helps to stimulate cardiovascular activity; if the music is good, it will not only stimulate you to do the workout but it will also stimulate your rate. Your blood circulation will be better and your workout will be more effective, resulting in enhanced weight loss.

For best results, note that the speed of the music should be from 118 to 122 bpm, or Beats Per Minute. Your workout playlist should also be designed to accommodate a full workout, starting slowly and allowing your body to adjust and adapt to the activity before increasing in intensity. After a warm-up period, the beat will increase and encourage quicker movements. After the workout is complete, the music should slow down again for a cool-down period to allow the body to relax.

Music has a lot of uses in our lives. We can listen to music if we want to relax. If a person wants to be energized and to be encouraged to keep on moving, music can be used as a cardiovascular stimulant. It helps when the gym that you are a member of always has good music playing in the background…if not, fire up your iPod Touch or iPhone and use 977music’s app to play your workout music.  Your mood will immediately be set. Adding music to an otherwise tiresome activity of working out and exercising will make a more worthwhile experience…it might even become fun.
