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.

The 2014-15 90 Degree Show Schedule

Bandz

We are back for the 2014-15 College Football Marching Season, and we are excited for the upcoming season. This year we are going to keep our current format of the show, but we are looking for more participation from the people who attend the games. Some of this is the nature of the beast, but to help facilitate people calling in is to feature the videographer that filmed the featured match up for that day. We want to support these filmmakers because of the value they add to our craft.

Our goal in sponsorship is to help sponsor the travel expenses for these hardworking filmmakers. Make sure to call in at 718-664-6025 on Sunday’s at 8pm EST and tell us what you think about what you saw or about the game you attended. The games listed below are the featured match-ups for the upcoming year and the intriguing match-ups, that if we have time that week, we will discuss. Some of the match-ups may not happen if the bands do not travel, and we will make note of that in the corresponding week prior to the broadcast. This post will be updated when a production company agrees to film one of the open slots below.

To my surprise….

So I am all excited about my blog and trying to get this podcast going and to my surprise I find this has already been done…WTF….yes I know trippin’ me out. There are some good current resources for marching band discussion, videos, blogging etc. MarchingNetwork, the5thquarter, MarchingSport.

These are some good sites and it’s really cool that my ideas someone else is thinking about them and they have been in the works. I would like to help and assist if I can but what I can’t do is quit. Having an idea is a responsibility and I can not get discouraged if someone has beaten me to the punch. Funny enough the same thing has happened already on this path. I originally wanted to create a battle of the bands to LA to get exposure here and to get more young black males interested in college. I later find that the HomeDepot Center has a battle of the bands in Carson, CA already and is a great tool for exposure and recruiting for Band directors. Tamala Jones is the POC when contacting about this event. I would like to interview her for the podcast but she said I have to go through some channels. Hopefully this will be nothing but understandable. I emailed her and she said that the event is every two years and will be back in 2012. Hopefully by then I will be apart of the equation somehow 😉 She went to Spelman like my mom so I am sure she is doing a good job. I will update the interview list later in the week.

Anyway I find through the forum 5thquarter that there is a 5thquarter podcast and a HBCU marching band podcast on itunes. I find it and it is old and it looks like they are not doing it anymore or something. I tried to leave a trail on the internet about my idea and my willingness to help in any way so we will see what I pick up. I have subscribed to the podcast and listened to some of it. The discussion was about the selection of schools for the Honda classic.
