honda

Welcome to the 2016-17 90 Degree Show. In this podcast we discuss the Granddaddy of battles The Honda BOTB from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. We welcome Christy Walker and Rashad Watters to the podcast to talk about their 2017 experience. We ask if this was a great Honda and if the performances were worthy of the circumstance. We will discuss what jumped out at us from the event and we will ponder over if this will be the last Honda BOTB. We talk briefly about some of the articles written about the Honda and about HBCU Bands and we wrap up with some schools that we would have liked to see this year and some schools to see in 2018.

It Takes Two to Make a Thing Go Right!

Trademark1b

We have reached May 2014 and what a great ride it has been. I think the greatest milestone achieved this year was establishing our official Trademark and now it is registered with the United States Patent and Trademark office. I have to admit, since I started teaching at a community college this semester, I have not created the same amount of episodes in advance. Last year, I had episodes created three months in advance, now I am trying my best to create them one week ahead of time for proper marketing. Part of my quest in starting this company was to reach out and be a positive light to young people to make our world a better place, and I believe we have picked up some fans along the way. Now its time for action, doing more to build our scholarship fund and to seek out people to join our family. I can only do so much on my own, and I believe that it takes a community to raise a child. We are strongest together when our swords are crossed, so for the upcoming year, we will be pushing to fill some positions with The Marching Podcast Network.

Secondly, one of our dear sponsors, Jeff Reed from Jeff and Sharon Reed (HBCU News with The Reeds), passed away in 2013, and we want to give our condolences to Sharon Reed and her family. Their goal was to provide HBCU news, updates and scholarship information with hopes of building their own scholarship as well. We want to support Sharon in whatever she does in Jeff’s memory, and since we both want to build scholarships, we will be teaming with Sharon to put together a fund in Jeff’s name.  We are excited now to have a vision for our scholarship fund and this helps with our first directive in building the family. The Marching Podcast will keep Jeff’s vision and HBCU News.net alive to complete the common goal that brought us together.

Our third directive is to continue to perfect our flagship show, The 9o Degree Show, by increasing interest and getting more people to voice their opinion. We have talked and connected with lots of people, who have provided good and bad feedback, and the most defining feedback has been about having some representation at the games. We will still give our opinion about what we see, but making sure we have a representative gives us the details we can’t get from video. We will also be looking to expand our panel each week so we have at least 4 people to comment on the game. We will also continue to have topics other than band and music that we discuss as well. We would like to do a show to talk about a documentary we saw this year, as well as create a blog post about religion and the African American community. We have created these topics to reach out to our fans and supporters, because critical thought about our earth and our society is important and we want to provide more angles of thoughts, other than band. Not too much but some. 🙂

Last and especially not least, to celebrate our two years being on the air, we are having a special Choppin It Up Series this month featuring teachers that were crucial in the development of the person I am today. Each teacher had a musical influence on me, and these are some of the teachers who are close to my heart. I only hope my kids have these type of teachers while they progress through life. The teachers this month will be the following:

Ms. Brenda Hente4th Grade and 8th Grade Teacher at Immanuel Lutheran Olivette – http://bit.ly/1u9XUg4

Mr. Steve TirmensteinRetired High School Band Director and Track Coach at Lutheran North High School  http://bit.ly/1jne4xV

Mr. Duncan C. GrayBand Director at West Charlotte High School – http://bit.ly/1neGCub

We want to thank them for their time, and we hope you enjoy the interviews!
