Martial music and more

Congress Avenue was made wide just for parades, but there aren’t as many of them as there used to be. We love bands here in Austin, as evidenced by the turnout for the Alvin Patterson Battle of the Bands and the regional high school marching-band events hald at Toney Burger Center and elsewhere. I made it home just in time from St. Iggy’s Family Affair (all those baked goods!) and the pumpkin patch at Grace United Methodist Church (one block east of South Congress) just in time for the new show from KNCT, 91.3 -FM radio, easily heard in Austin. Today’s featured band is the Second Armored Division Band. Tune in now and hear the remaining 45 minutes of this spirited music. Concert Time USA has been broadcast only about a month, but we try to hear it every week, Saturdays from 5 to 6 pm. KNCT offers streaming audio.

Update: Concert Time USA has its own Web site. Now up is streaming audio for last week’s complete show (October 13), with amazingly accomplished performances by three Texas high school band ensembles.
