There's Little Defense Against the USC Band

October 20, 1990

Ears and brain can take only so much and I hope I never hear the USC band again.

Having been totally annoyed in the past, I decided at Saturday's USC-Stanford game to try to count the number of times the Trojan Band played all or part of its fanfare (called "Conquest," I think). The total I got was 46 and I probably missed a few.

What the USC band director forgets (or ignores) is that any mature brain begins to filter out the constant music. And finally it is totally tuned out or the trapped listener is driven wild.
