After 50 years leading the Badger Band, Mike Leckrone says goodbye!

Professor Mike Leckrone, UW’s beloved Band Director has been a fixture at Camp Randall Stadium, playing the soundtrack of generations of UW Alumni and fans for 50 years.  On August 25, 2018, following band practice, Professor Leckrone announced to the band members his plan to retire after the ‘18-‘19 academic year.  Before Leckrone there was no 5th Quarter, no chicken dance and no one shouting “When you say Wis-con-sin, you’ve said it all!”  The man has singlehandedly changed football Saturdays at Camp Randall Stadium.
