I've listened to the show many times and the thing that intrigues me most, and I don't want to get into a 'they should have beaten Vanguard' debate, is towards the end of the show. You can clearly hear someone shout 'Judges are you watching'. Does anyone know a back story or is it just a random supporter shouting?

I haven't listened to that show in about 10 years.

 I have to agree that Phantom Regiment should maybe have edged out SCV on Finals night in '89. SCV drill was a bit ragged in spots on Finals NIght ( look at the OTL, 1st 30 seconds of show for example. Some spacing, drifting issues quite evident there, imo ). Phantom Regiment seemed cleaner on Finals Night to me. That said, not to quibble,  flip a coin, as both had terrific shows. '89 was a great season, imo, as several Corps up and down the line up that '89 season had very entertaining shows.

To me, this show was even and yes, it could have gone either way, that said, what makes this an easy choice on who should have won, comes down to one caption. Percussion. SCV top to bottom had a superior section in terms of the arrangement and execution. The writing was more musical, worked beautifully with the brass arrangement. Phantom Regiment's battery was not as clean as SCV that night and their arrangement was becoming dated, compared to what SCV was doing. Also look at the percussion score in the captions. SCV scored 14.9 out of 15 and Phantom Regiment scored 14.4 placing 5th. 

(Side Note) *Cadets started this trend in 87 with Hannum, writing the book to weave within the brass arrangement oppose to how BD and others in the past would approach the writing, which was more of a glorified rhythm section to complement the brass arrangement. Since Cadets took percussion in 87 (perfect score), look at who won drum trophies after that (SCV, Cadets, Star, Cavies, SCV, Cavies, Star), not BD until 1994, where their book was more modern in their arrangement than the past. What happen in 1987, whether the percussion judge sheets changed or that a trend manifested itself had an effect on 1989, maybe a stretch, just my theory.*
