The excerpts above are from the CD. The video at the left was recorded live at the Roseville Big Band's June 6, 2009, concert.

Studio M co-owner Tom Mudge, who served as chief engineer for Concert in the Park, appears as one of the background voices in the introduction to Rosie the Riveter on the CD. Producer Glen Newton selected the comically exaggerated sounds of the "cocktail bar" from a radio drama Tom acted in fifteen years earlier, depicting Robin Hood and his merry men.
