From the archives. This week's contestant Walt Warren from Wheeling, West Virginia. I had a pretty good guess for the composer style -- the same one as Mr. Warren, and Bruce Adolphe said it was very close and could almost have been the right answer. But alas, I was wrong. As for the hidden song -- I could hear it, clearly in fact, and even was pretty sure I recognized it and where it might be from...but I just couldn't get it. But I don't feel badly because not only did Walt Warren not get it, but neither did host Fred Child. In fact, Fred didn't get it even after Bruce Adolphe gave some clues and the first world of the title. And when giving the answer, himself cried out, "Who would get that?!"
