The Piano Puzzler turns 10

Composer Bruce Adolphe joins PT host Fred Child on the air every week with a Piano Puzzler. Bruce re-writes a familiar tune in the style of a classical composer. Fred gets one of our listeners on the phone and together they to try to guess the tune, and the composer Bruce is imitating.

Fred and Bruce took some time to reflect on the history of the Piano Puzzler.

Read Fred's thoughts here, and Bruce's here.
