This is A-State Connections on KASU. I'm Johnathan Reaves. We continue talking about the Arkansas State University bands, and this week we focus on the Sound of the Natural State Marching Band.
Leading the Sound of the Natural State is Director of Athletic Bands and Assistant Director of Bands at Arkansas State University Dr. Steven Riley. Riley is a Massachusetts native and is in his second year at A-State. I asked him about his thoughts on the A-State Bands turning 90 this year. Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
