2014 Marching Podcast Award Winners!!

We had another great year of marching band performances and were blessed to do another show for the Marching Podcast Awards. I will be announcing the winners and honorable mentions on Twitter. This year Rashad Watters and James McDaniel from BandTube.com and Brian Rhodes, our marching Aggie, were on the show with me; and we had a good time. Shout out to my crab brother, Troy Milton, who was stuck in a snow storm in Detroit and could not call in to the show. Just like last year, our overlapping decisions were awarded the consensus selection, and we had to mention other schools because it is hard sometimes to settle on one band.  Here are the winners and the honorable mentions for the 2014 Marching Podcast Awards!
