Happy Independence Day to all of my American listeners! For this week's episode I am joined by SSG Francis Franqui, a former band director and now a bugle musician with the United States Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps to talk about a variety of topics including the history and significance of the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, his experience during the audition process, and some discussion of historical instruments and marching styles.
