The Piano Puzzler

The Piano Puzzler

Host Fred Child (l) with Bruce Adolphe, Piano Puzzler Wizard
Every week Bruce Adolphe re-writes a familiar tune in the style of a classical composer. We get one of our listeners on the phone, and our caller listens to Bruce play his Piano Puzzler. They then try to do two things: name the hidden tune, and name the composer whose style Bruce is mimicking.
