Our flagship series is The 90 Degree Show. During the college football season we recap the most intriguing battles of the weekend. We also talk about current events involving bands and events involving students from elementary school to college. Join us each week during the football season to keep your ear to the street on bands! Tune in Mondays at 9pm EST HERE    for The 90 Degree Show


One-on-one interviews with positive role models and/or students that have a connection through music and/or education. We chop it up to inspire our youth to become productive citizens and instill good ethics in their character. Choppin it up is a old term for catching up with friends and in the same breath we are building friendships and inspiring our community through education and the marching arts.


For all the bandheads that have sat at home and watched young football players tell the world where they will be going to school, The Marching Podcast introduces The National Signing Day Show for Marching Bands. We pick students from all over the country to tell the world on our network where they will be going to school to get an education and to become part of the marching band family. We hope to increase the knowledge and awareness of these schools and their band programs.


 The Directors Series is a podcast specifically for band directors and music teachers looking for tips and discussions that will enable them to improve the program at his/her school. We also want to create 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. Our series is based on creating a great musician and not just a great bandsmen.
