One More Time
About This Show
One More Time is a monthly podcast hosted by Illinois Bands. Each month we will present a story on a topic related to bands that we hope appeals to anyone interested in wind band, both concert and marching. We will also have weekly segments, including "Two Minute Rehearsal Techniques" for band directors, "Pathways" which is the story of how band or music brought a person to their current point in life, and "History from the Archive" with Scott Schwartz, Director of the Sousa Archive and Center for American Music.

The Source Material segment features Michael Markowski and "The Cave You Fear." Derek Jenkins discusses the Iowa Band Tax, Matthew Maslanka talks about his father's passing, and several Marching Illini members discuss the death of a recent member.
