|1||CleanVideoPASIC 2006 - Proud and Immortal||This was the first original composition done by Oklahoma State. It takes material from all the songs of Oklahoma State and groups from Stillwater, Oklahoma. The show is divided into three movements entitled Rock, Pop and Classical. The OSU Alma Mater is the common thread connecting all three movements. This show was dedicated to Brent Wheatley, lead guitarist for Manifest Destiny and ALL alumni of the OSU Marching Percussion Ensemble.

||CleanOSU Drumline 1988 Sounds||This file includes the brand new Series 1988, Old Man River, and Tiger of San Pedro. There was no video or cassette made for this year due to financial issues and band wind conditions during the recording sessions. Although the membership is just a little bigger than 1987, the core of people is the same and you can really hear the improvement over the span of only one year.||6 8 2006||Free||View in iTunes|
