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.
