Happy 4th Birthday Marching Podcast & BlogTalkRadio

46335_317127455051454_218284084_n

On May 19, 2012, The Marching Podcast broadcast its first show entitled “Hello World“. The episode included our host introducing himself and informing the audience where he’s from and about the ideology of the The Marching Podcast network. Since its inception, The Marching Podcast network has been the perfect format to share the experience of participating in college marching band and communicate to the world about college marching bands, while conducting interviews with great people, starting a dialog with young directors to improve their craft and providing college scholarships to students that will march in the band as part of their college experience. We would like to thank BlogTalkRadio for their service, and we are grateful for the platform to touch people all over the world.

The Marching Podcast was started to generate positive media and discussions, educate the public on historically black colleges and provide students opportunities for success in higher learning through scholarships, as well as physical and emotional support to seed the character of our young people to become productive citizens in our society.

We would also like to thank our sponsors that believe in what we are doing and have contributed financially to broadcast our show during peak hours and to help build our scholarship fund. Our sponsors are BlockBand Music and Publishing, Da Edge 1 Productions, and Double Time Entertainment.

In the future, we hope to expand our network to more businesses, but at the moment, we are more concerned with the quality of our relationships rather than quantity of sponsors. We want to remain a family and nurture those relationships to better our business community and promote the efficiency of both our network and our sponsors. We believe our sponsors will be lifted to a greater degree, and together we will climb the figurative ladder that ascends our world.

We have an official trademark, an apparel store, solid programming and now for the future… The Marching Podcast is beginning our new fundraising campaign to generate more funds for more scholarships, increase our outreach to more people, and build connections with entities like college fairs and relative businesses. Finally, we want to build revenue to sponsor a battle of the bands and more events that promote our craft.

We are also looking forward to building stronger interaction on Twitter by getting more HBCU Marching Bands to start their own Twitter handle so we can communicate directly with the band staff. This will build the band program’s recognition and help create positive interactions and impressions for the school. So, get out there and start tweeting. Our Twitter handle is @marchingpodcast.

We are excited about the future, and we thank you for all that you have done to put this network in great standing and finally in a position to change the image of our communities and make the world a better place.
