The instrumental song "My Mood" currently appears as a closing theme for the newscast presented on WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. It was a favorite song of news anchor Jim Vance; in tribute to Vance (who passed in July 2017), the song is still played at the end of the newscast.

The instrumental song "T.L.C. (Tender Lovin' Care)" appears as a closing theme for the educational competition show "It's Academic", also on WRC-TV, Washington, D.C.
