It seems rather apropos that Frazer Cook‘s father attended the first game ever played at Husky Stadium — the very setting where his son has since recorded a substantial chapter of Husky history.

For 57 years, Frazer was the voice of the Husky Marching Band. Through rain, sleet, wind, snow and hot sun, he announced close to 2,000 songs, from “The Star Spangled Banner” to “Bow Down to Washington” and “Tequila.”

In doing so, he become a legend, creating countless memories for generations of Husky fans who could not imagine game day at Husky Stadium without his golden voice. Says one former band member, “Game Day at the stadium didn’t really begin until Frazer started doing his sound checks.”

Frazer has made invaluable contributions to the Alumni Association and the university, and we are utterly grateful for his loyalty and all that he has done to enrich our Husky traditions.
