I really liked the early 80s too. The music was great and Sal Salas had some great guards. And who could forget Dan Veerhusen as drum major in 1980.

1981 - My youngest brother's rookie year in Scouts as a rifle.
1988 - Clean as a whistle.
1995 - En fuego!

I remember my first time seeing Madison live....1978. That was another great show!!

Malaguena, God Bless the Child, Star Wars medley, and How deep is you Love. Great hornline!! I had the chance to see legendary Jimmy Elvord work the brass inside the gym. Great stuff!!!

I also really liked the 1979 opener. That was very exciting!!
