The Voice of the Band

The band honors Cook’s 40 years of service in 2000.

SEPT. 11 , 2010, WILL BE A HUGE DAY AT H U S K Y S TA D I U M . Not only will the Washington Huskies have their home opener against Syracuse, but Frazer Cook, ’65, will begin his 50th season as the announcer for the Husky Marching Band. During that time, Cook, 67, has not missed a single Husky home or bowl game. In the rain, wind, snow and hot sun, he has announced close to 2,000 songs performed by the band, everything from the Star Spangled Banner to Bow Down to Washington to (uh-huh, uh-huh) That’s the Way (I Like it). “Everyone loves Frazer,” says Band Director Brad McDavid. To which Cook says: “I’m not part of the show. No one should notice me.” Too late.—Jon Marmor Frazer Cook was photographed July 23, 2010, in Husky Stadium by Kerry Dahlen.
