Piece Comment

Review of Gateway High Steppers

Very sound-present piece that grabs you from the start. It is an audio postcard about a drill team in Kansas that improves the lives of kids by giving them something more. The piece is filled with the voices and rhythm of the moment and the reporter did a good job of capturing the personality of the kids and parents involved.

Because of location it would be hard for other stations to fit this into a cutaway, however the piece would fit nicely in a program or series dealing with anything musical or kids, specifically solutions for troubled youths.
