Dave Gibbs, director of the Blue Devils, is tuning in to the Drum Corps International PBS broadcast when it is aired in his California viewing region."I've always been a proponent of the broadcast. I think this kind of an approach (the new program format) is going to give people a taste of what it like to participate, and it's going to give people a good taste of why these kids are special. It will convey the power and the passion of the drum corps activity. It's great for the kids and for the activity," Gibbs said.Gibbs has seen it every year, "probably since 1975," the corps director said. Gibbs has been with the Corps through all 29 years of Drum Corps International membership and has won Drum Corps International titles as a marcher, a staff member and director.
