OHHS School Song
The finale of the band reunion concert with AJ Walker on 8/7/04. This was shot with a hand held camera from the back of the audience. Many thanks to Muriel & the late Albert Dignan. The sound & picture aren't quite in sync, probably because this was converted from video tape to DVD to .wmv file. The music still sounds good.
