From the archives. This week's contestant is Garrett Fitzgerald from Orono, Maine. I got the hidden song within about six notes, and if you don't get it at all you aren't trying. Shockingly, Mr. Fitzgerald missed it -- and didn't even get it on a second listen. As for the composer style -- I didn't know. I only had one guess, and though wrong, I was surprised that composer Bruce Adolphe said that person I guessed overlapped with the correct answer, and that there were even touches in the pieces. So, though wrong I almost considered giving myself honorable mention. But seeing that I probably should have gotten it right -- and I think others can -- I won't...
Today’s bonus Fun Fact: I’ve actually been to Orono, Maine. It’s the home of the University of Maine, and I visited it on a day off when working on the Stephen King movie Pet Sematary. It was only about 35 miles from our film set in Ellsworth (and about 15 minutes from Bangor, where Stephen lives), and I not only thought it would be interesting to see both, but I wanted to buy a University of Maine Bears baseball cap.
