Happy 4th of July! For this patriotic episode Ethan opens up with "Yankee Doodle Boy" followed by a Scott Joplin rag with a patriotic theme ("The Nonpareil"). Then, Ethan plays "Blaze Away," a rousing march inspired by Teddy Roosevelt's heroics in the Spanish-American War. Finally, Ethan plays Irving Berlin's immortal "God Bless America."

I'm a big but biased fan!
I'm wife to the host and co-producer so of course I think it is great. I do think Ethan has a unique talent for playing the piano and talking about the music. The show is the perfect blend of beautiful music, interesting stories, funny jokes and quirky "sponsors." Fun for the whole fam!

Fun podcast from a world-class ragtime piano player (who also dabbles in boogie, classical, and even opera!) And there is finally a podcast that brings the music of the Spanish-American War to life ;)
