Joe Beard of The Marching Podcast joins me on this show, the first in a two-part series. His podcast focuses on the marching arts within the world of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. HBCU bands have their own distinctive show style, and Joe gives us a great primer on where to start with HBCU bands. We also talk about HBCU students’ participation in drum corps, touch on the political brouhaha that was marriage equality in Indiana, and why keeping music in schools is so important.
