Interesting show - I must listen to it next week :). With both the pieces (both the actual puzzle and the preceding illustration), I could get the composer but not the tune - though, the actual puzzle was based on tune I didn't know (and wouldn't have much of a chance of knowing from this side of the Atlantic, to be honest). I wonder how often the contestant identifies the tune? :-). Well done, too :) Oh, first post in ages, and it's off-topic :-). Can't even add an ObConlang, since I haven't done anything in ages. Though, reading a book on grammaticalisation is giving me some interesting ideas... :-) -- Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of Stephen Mulraney matter at or near the earth's surface relative to other matter; second, telling other people to do so. -- Bertrand Russell
