I felt the awesome power of marching band music for the first time about two years ago on the steps of the Low Library at Columbia. Just a bunch of kids belting out some tunes that were total thrashers. I couldn't believe how much i identified with the thump of the music, and as I glanced around, it was apparent that everyone around me felt it, too. Monica's show on WFMU
highlights southern black marching bands and their inclusive funkiness. Well worth listening to some of her archives.
