Western Thunder

This time of year usually means the start of college football. Not this year. Without game days and big crowds of tailgaters, college towns across the Mountain West and beyond look different - and sound a lot different, too.

Riverton High School

The University of Wyoming marching band "Western Thunder" took a trip to Riverton to perform at a high school football game against Cody. The event, called "Bring the Thunder" is part of an effort to get students excited about going to college - and to recruit new members of the marching band. Wyoming Public Radio's Savannah Maher was there to see the two bands meet, and she sent us this postcard.
