Right, Zach!

A more OKOM "Bethena" is on Dan Levinson's Steppin' Around CD.
It's done by Dan Levinson's Canary Cottage Orchestra and features
Matt Szemela on those lovely violin parts.
The CD also has John Gill (bjo), Kevin Dorn (dr), Molly Ryan (vc),
the Victrolian Vaudeville Quartet, and others.
