When I was doing a lot of ESPN work we always had an issue with the bands at half-time and the rally bands for basketball. ABC got sued over using "Rock The Casbah" as a live bump out on a Kentucky game so as of 1992 we could only (for ESPN) use the band if they played the "Sportscenter Theme" or the school music.

It wasn't a problem for incidental, just if the band was featured or recorded and played out later.

(that was also the year ESPN created the "no shots of women without a head" rule)

Cheers,

Frank Otto
