    Does anyone know where I can access the pre-recorded songs for the prologue/radio? Or what did you do for this?

    I found some, but there is not access to the Bolero Singer in the finale?

    I assembled my own. We also had some fun w the balero singer. I had our musical director, who has serious opera chops, sing the part in isolation and then I mixed it w the instrumental...adding in some record scratches and effects to simulate the old recording sound. I also created the record skip into the hip hop groove. This worked great for the band, since it gave them the groove to lock into and then the recording faded out.
