The guest today trying to figure out both the hidden tune and the classical composer whose style it's written in is Lane Cheney, from San Antonio, Texas. I found the hidden tune to be extremely easy -- and was not just surprised that the contestant has such difficulty with it, but especially because he teaches music in middle school. I have no doubt that it's far more challenging when playing the game for real over the telephone than at home relaxing to the radio -- but still, you'll see (and hear) for yourself, particularly when Bruce Adolphe re-plays the piece and the hidden song is virtually being played for what it is. The composer style is another matter. It's tough, though I feel I could have gotten it. My guess was in the right range, but more off than it should have been. All in all, an enjoyable piece to play along with and listen to.
