Lund of Digital-on-Location (Biery and Thomas), Preston Smith of Perfect Record (Paulus and Hakim), Jeffrey O’Donnell and Joshua Wyatt of St. Olaf Audio Studio (Haugen, Barnett, Franklin), Mike Wolsted and Bob Schultz of Encore Productions (Manz), Cameron Wiley and Kyle Wesloh of MPR (Argento), and Michael Barone and Alan Stricklin of MPR (Hopkins).

There are, of course, many other Minnesota-sourced programs in the PIPEDREAMS Archive, including one devoted to the entirety of the Minnesota Organ Book 2008, with composer commentary (Program #0818).
