Joey Campagna's Blog: Reasons to Love College A Cappella, #1

For those of you who don't know me, I host Acappella U, The Collegiate A Cappella Podcast. I started the show in 2005, and something that many of my listeners don't know is that I was never actually in a collegiate a cappella group. For some reason people are incredibly surprised when they hear that, and I can feel them wanting to ask me the obvious follow up: what business do I have yapping about college a cappella on a podcast when, truthfully, I have no idea what I'm doing? featureimage:

What The Zhen Jo Were We Thinking??

Well, I’m on another airplane, so it’s time to write some articles!  I’m on my way back from the 2009 ICCA Finals in New York, which will probably go down in aca-lore as “the day MTV took over”.

It's All About The Glee

That's it! It's so simple, and it's been the case all along, but now we have a hit TV show that makes our point for us. Maybe I should back up? Alright: it all started the first time you heard vocal harmony. Admit it - there was something there. Something powerful. You loved the sound, the interweaving of the voices.
