Show Notes

You know him already as the play-by-play guy for the Elyria High School Pioneer Marching Band but maybe you didn't know his name. He's Bob Putka, and he holds the coveted spot as the voice of the band. "One thing I've found in Elyria is people really like their band, and they get very excited. You can hear it in the stands. So, it feels good to be able to do that for people who appreciate the kids performing and appreciate their band," Putka said. "The kids deserve someone who's excited for them and it reflects the community's excitement for them." Bob's son, Aaron Putka, is the Director of the Elyria High School Pioneer Marching Band. Bob is a retired teacher of the arts who spent 46 years in public education. In this interview, Bob's personality shines through on Petey Podcast as he talks about the band and his many years in the "biz" of teaching.
