OurDailyPodcast Episode 32: Beats By Drago

Josie Drago clears her throat and joins us for some fun discussions about her role in the special atmosphere surrounding Baylor football in 2013.

Welcome back, folks. I'm sure you're all still getting used to the fact that we're podcasting again. It can be hard to do given the state of things these days. Football offseason, struggling basketball team, baseball not quite up to speed, y'know how it is. But I promise you that we make OurDailyPodcast worth your while, and this episode is no exception!

Before we get to our special guest for this week, I just wanted to make one note about the audio. Moving threw everything out of whack for a bit. If you listen to the show, you know that I was recording in a storage closet while I was displaced because it was the only place where there wasn't a ton of ambient noise. We're moved into our new house, but we're still getting settled. As such, the audio quality is not quite where I'd like it to be, I just haven't had the chance to work out all the kinks. Rest assured, though, I'll get it all sorted out.

An Evening With Josie Drago

Joining us this week is the Mistress of Beats herself, Josie Drago. Josie is the person responsible for the in-stadium music that you heard all last season at the football games (and will soon be hearing during baseball season). She'll be reprising that role again in the fall and we couldn't be more excited about that! Josie joins us to talk about her job and what all it entailed at the football stadium, as well as what she'll be doing with baseball and whatnot. She also endures a little good-natured ribbing at the expense of her alma mater with good grace and surprises all of us just a little bit there. She was also kind enough to answer our No Huddle questions that we put together just for her. We hope you enjoy them!

As an aside, I'm of the opinion that her and the team to which she belongs were a massive portion of the transformation of Floyd Casey Stadium this past season from an old stadium in which to watch a really special football team to a can't-miss college football atmosphere. Her well-timed song selection, coupled with the dynamic on-the-field play and the excitement of the sideline really made The Case a special place to be last season. She's sure to do the same with McLane Stadium this fall.

Thanks for coming on the podcast, Dragon!

So that's her real account. As mentioned in the show, be on the lookout for a new Twitter handle, probably @BeatsByDrago, coming soon. If all goes to plan, she'll tweet out her songs after she plays them so that you can build your very own Baylor Hype Playlist! I have to say I think this is a brilliant idea, should it happen. Let's hope it does.

Once again, our most heartfelt thanks to Josie for coming on the show and spending an hour with us!
