Like the annual leaf raking fiasco at the Forge, I’m cleaning up around BandSir.com over the next few days. You’ll already notice a few minor changes on the site — most of them cosmetic.
The audio player is now more attractive and the titles of the individual tracks are cleaner and easier to read. For the concerts, there’s a banner which identifies the year in which the track was performed. For the records, the album cover appears as the banner. (All the concerts are done as of this writing. I still have to clean up all the album data.)
There’s now a download button on the player so that you can download a favorite track.
A pop-out player exists so you can pop out a small separate window with just the playlist in it. It takes up less space on your desktop.
There are now social media sharing buttons on each page. If you would like to share a page, there are buttons at the top and bottom of each page which will let you share it to your favorite social media platform. If you’d like me to add a different platform than the four currently listed, let me know and I’ll add it if I can.
Lastly, I’m trying to find a better search engine that will allow you to search the site for a particular title. It sort of works now, but there’s still some refinement left in order to get it to work the way I hope it will.
I’m going to try to add more music to the site as well. I have a few more records to digitize and hopefully I can get to those in the coming weeks.
As always, if you see an error or can identify a track that’s unidentified, please drop me a note at email@example.com and I’ll fix it as soon as I am able.
Sidebar: Actually, Bill Kear had a great way to help identify the tracks, but I need to talk with him about it before going forward. Thanks, Bill!
Thanks again for your patience and for following this site! It’s always great to see new subscribers and familiar names pop up on the site.
Courage, Honor, Conquer!
Thank you for your awesome efforts in providing the music.
Quite some time ago while exploring bandsir.com, I found a recording of the Glee Club singing the Alma Mater.
Tonight, I have spent much time trying unsuccessfully to find that track again. If you could, please narrow my search.
I understand any delay during this unprecedented time.
Again I thank you for your awesome work!
I believe it’s on one of the records. Try this link: http://www.bandsir.com/record-albums/record-album-the-cadet-band/alma-mater/
