How many people here know the original 1952 Guy Mitchell recording?

"And I've just gotta get five or ten ..." tenths in several captions, is doubtless what some of these corps are thinking, although one corps who is not thinking that is...

"The Commandant's Own" aka The U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, who will be appearing in exhibition, at:

DCI Pittsburgh Presented by Three Rivers

Baldwin High School Stadium

4653 Clairton Blvd. (PA Route 51)

Pittsburgh, PA 15236

Sunday, August 3, 2014 -- 7:00 p.m.

Corps in performance order:

--Cascades

--Mandarins

--Pacific Crest

--Colts

--Blue Knights

--Blue Stars

--Boston Crusaders

--Phantom Regiment

More information here.

And here's a news story about the show from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The National Weather Service says there is a 30% chance of showers Sunday night, with showtime temperature of about 70 degrees.

That news story is, to me, quite remarkable in its accuracy and completeness of information about the show, the corps and DCI, in general. I confess that I haven't seen a lot of news articles on the subject, but the ones I have seen have not come close to this one. Not even the news article from Denver media, where DATR has been around for 50 years. Good job, and thank you, Ken Mrazik and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

I'll be at the show, but not reporting. Our seats are high on the left side 40.

Anyone at the show? Seems awfully quiet...

(BTW, I was actually at this show a couple of years ago because the show in Buffalo got cancelled.)

All the corps should be done by now, in fact. Scores, anyone?
