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.

Hello world!

Hello world.. This is Joe Beard here to start documenting the love that I have for black college bands and to create a form of lively hood, promise, future, and community uplift to help change my community and to spread my love of black college bands to the world and to provide an avenue of education to our youth.

Of course no one does anything alone so that is why my partner in crime Samuel Glover will be building this empire with me. Not to mention the real brains behind any organization Steve Johnson… we will be applying teamwork that we learned when marching together for the International Institution of Sound Johnson C. Smith. After going our separate ways and with the help of all this new technology we are here to provide a service that we ourselves are dying for.

This blog is to post our ideas and to journal our road to what we are going for. We have individually done things to this point so now we are using this site to bring it all together. We would like to have a weekly podcast, that would build our capital and name and soon be an avenue for youth to earn music degrees to college and prepare them for lift. He hope to one day have a music school, a battle of the bands, mock drafts, high school seminars, anything that may excite the pulse of a bandsman so that we can not only build popularity but build community by exciting more of our youth about college and getting an education.

Keep crankin’
