NOVOS-17 contains a 33-minute video program, highlighting Mike Bankhead's appearances at the American Band College in Ashland, Oregon and Western International Band Clinic in Seattle.

The idea for this series is based on Ira Novoselsky's ongoing activity creating interesting, complete programs for traditional radio. When Bandworld Magazine went exclusively online in 2004, it became obvious that the Internet provides a way to get to a much broader audience. NOVOS was chosen in honor of Ira, who has contributed in many ways to the development of Bandworld Magazine and the American Band College Center for Research.
