The 2014-15 90 Degree Show Schedule

Bandz

We are back for the 2014-15 College Football Marching Season, and we are excited for the upcoming season. This year we are going to keep our current format of the show, but we are looking for more participation from the people who attend the games. Some of this is the nature of the beast, but to help facilitate people calling in is to feature the videographer that filmed the featured match up for that day. We want to support these filmmakers because of the value they add to our craft.

Our goal in sponsorship is to help sponsor the travel expenses for these hardworking filmmakers. Make sure to call in at 718-664-6025 on Sunday’s at 8pm EST and tell us what you think about what you saw or about the game you attended. The games listed below are the featured match-ups for the upcoming year and the intriguing match-ups, that if we have time that week, we will discuss. Some of the match-ups may not happen if the bands do not travel, and we will make note of that in the corresponding week prior to the broadcast. This post will be updated when a production company agrees to film one of the open slots below.

100 Broadcasts and Running!

304417_333112973452902_1444244306_nWe are proud to announce another milestone here at The Marching Podcast Network. On Tuesday, November 26, 2013, we will be broadcasting our 100th episode on The Marching Podcast Network: Chop It Up with Joshua Cousin. We are blessed and honored to reach this milestone and would not have done it without the listeners and our entire staff. We also want to give thanks to all the people that have broadcast shows on our network and all the people that helped with each broadcast directly and indirectly.

We want The Marching Podcast to be a series of positive podcasts that help inspire young people to do great things and make a balanced decision concerning the college they choose to attend. It it also for the adults to have a platform to reach these young people and be a positive benchmark for the rest of the world. Our passion is to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). We strive to provide scholarships to help increase the number of scholarships available and create excitement for HBCU’s. Similar to The Cosby Show and A Different World, we want The Marching Podcast to be that beacon of light and prosperity.

Each podcast has helped with the growth of the network and has also helped bring more listeners to a variety of our network’s other shows. At this time, I want to attempt to say “thanks” to everyone. Thank you to all the shows that have broadcast on The Marching Podcast Network, the people that have helped with audio quality and creative presentation, and last but not least our sponsors and patrons that allow us to broadcast during peak hours (please see the list below for more details). Special thanks to Collin Welbon our Director of Editing, who just recently boosted his career by taking a new job editing for a software company where he lives in San Francisco but will still be able to edit our posts. Another special thanks to all the experts that call in and help me host the 90 Degree Show.

Nuts and Bolts

Here is my current update and where I am. I am getting more information for interviews than I am getting for covering an actual games. I am still not 100% sure about how I will present things but I have put together the syllabus for the show. I have 6 parts of the show and I have a time frame of 40-50 minutes. Using twitter I am able to see the games for the upcoming weekend but I have to figure out how to present the game to the listener. In addition I would like to design a formula that gives more of a substantial result as what band beat the other. Chris Jones and I talked about this years ago when trying to put together a battle of the bands, we wanted to determine a winner by a panel of judges based on variables that we come up with. In addition ESPN has created this new QBR rating to give a better formula than QB rating, so I thought the same here.
The parts of the show are as follows:

1. Intro
2. news\game recaps
3. Interview\Education
4. Game Previews
5. emails
6. Conclusion

The intro and conclusion will be a total of 5min but the other segments I would like to fill 10-12 min each. I would like the podcast to last between 35-50 min. News and Game recaps will be information from any hbcu that is worth mentioning, then we go into the recap of the weekend’s games. This will be based on reports submitted from a correspondent at the individual game. We will discuss the formula used to analyst the two bands and what opinion was given as to who won the battle.

The interview and education will be an interview to someone who is doing something in the community. I will come up with questions to conduct the interview and will allow the name to spread about what the person is doing and how we can help. Very important to have good guests for the current students college or high school but to make more parents aware of what is going on.

My 2 most recent selections for interviews only have little to do with bands but more to do with people who are providing a service to our community. First is Maleta Wilson who went to Bethune Cookman and runs a black college tour so that California black children will have black educational experiences since no black school resides in Cali. This is a great service and giving her an interview to spread this is essential. The next are two of my frat brothers that have put together their own fishing show! I think that this is a great service to spread fishing knowledge but another way to spread interest in our community. Hanief Saterfield and Anthony Taylor have a show that was recently on Fox cable.

Game previews will be listing all the upcoming games on Thursday and Saturday and make a prediction of who will win.

Emails will be what people are writing into the show about, suggestions, debate of the formula, etc.

Conclusion will be me signing off. Giving an inspiration quote for the day and last-minute reminders, and shot outs. I will asking for more feedback about this setup and/or about anything else to get this show on the road. Please follow this blog or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.
