Ethan starts off by showing off his cockney accent in the English law enforcement classic "The Policeman's Holiday" (1899). Then he smoothly segues into a Titanic-themed program. "The Wreck of the Titanic" is a descriptive march from 1912 that depicts musically the events of that fateful voyage. Ethan's 8 year old son and budding flutist joins him for the "Nearer My God to Thee" moment. Then Ethan plays the piece that was REALLY played as the Titanic sank ("Dream of Autumn") and finally he rides off into the sunset with "Buffalo Bill's Farewell." What does Buffalo Bill have to do with the Titanic? Was he on the Titanic with his horse? Well, maybe if you listened to the podcast instead of reading this blurb, you'd find out!
