One thing that is important to us here at The Marching Podcast Network is supporting businesses we believe in. One of our ‘Chopping It Up’ guests and friend John Pickens, is the owner and founder of Simply Dope Creative. We hired him to create a logo for the ‘Choppin It Up’ series!
We are pleased with the final product and we are excited to release this logo to the world here on our blog.

Introducing Charles Beard. Charles is the First Vice President, Consumer Advocacy Operations Risk Senior Project Manager for Suntrust Banks and also the cousin of our host. Charles or ‘Jeff’ as his family calls him, is a proud HBCU graduate that marched in the band during a time when marching bands on television were at its peak on BET. That exposure made lots of us attend these schools, so talking with someone that marched in that time is valuable. Charles has gone on to do great things from his time in college and we are honored for his time in this podcast.

We would like to introduce a new Director Series Podcast to broadcast in the Spring of 2014 on The 90 Degree Show. The fans of the show have spoken, and they are saying that there needs to be more discussion about bands outside of just marching season. The other parts of the year are intricate to what we see in the fall and vice versa. To lead this discussion, we introduce Dr. Kevin O. Davenport Ed.S. & Ed.D.
