08 Who reads rec.arts.marching.band.college?

Although Gordon Henderson, director of the UCLA Band, was once quoted as
saying that only 40 people read r.a.m.b.c., it's likely that the number is
much, much higher. People from bands all over the country (and a few from
outside the U.S., although their organizations rarely fit our definition
of a college marching band) read and participate in r.a.m.b.c. every day.

Many student and alumni staff members of marching bands, including drum
majors, managers, and others participate or at least lurk in the group. To
date, only a few faculty directors, have actually posted to the group;
notably Gary Smith (ret.) of the University of Illinois Marching Illini,
Dave Woodley (The Colonel) from Indiana University, and John Madden,
director of the Michigan State Spartan Marching Band.
