From the liner notes to the _Look Out For The Cheater_ LP:

    There's a big hullabaloo coming from MUSICLAND, U.S.A.! ... and it's
    all coming from BOB KUBAN AND THE IN-MEN, the most exciting musical
    sound to come along in all my eight years as producer and emcee of the
    "St. Louis Hop" television dance show.

    BOB KUBAN, leader of this big-band sound, is a young, handsome
    instrumental music instructor at Bishop Du Bourg High School and is Du
    Bourg's first winner of the much coveted _John Philip Sousa Award_!

    Here's the inside on the IN-MEN: GREG HOELTZEL, a Washington University
    student, plays the organ; MIKE KRENSKI, St. Louis University student,
    is bass player and composer; brass and reeds are expertly handled by PAT
    HIXON, HARRY SIMON, and SKIP WEISSER, all attending St. Louis Institute
    Of Music; talented KEN SMITH is lead guitarist; and, according to the
    girls, lead vocalist [Sir!] WALTER SCOTT "sings adorably!"  [AWR: Bob
    Kuban played drums - AWR]

    This album contains some of the brightest sounds I have heard in this
    new generation.  I know you'll appreciate this fresh, long-awaited
    versatile group -- they'll be musical stars for years to come!

    					Russ Carter Producer/Emcee
    					KSD-TV/Channel 5

    P.S.: The IN-MEN and their producer, Mel Friedman, asked me to make
    public their gratitude to Al Bussen, skillful sound engineer,
    Technisonic Studios, Inc., St. Louis.
