In this episode, Ethan pays his income tax and sings a song about it. Then he digs up an obscure Irving Berlin tune about an immigrant facing deportation. Finally, Ethan opens up the phone lines, and to his utter dismay, gets a robocall. He responds the only way he knows how - by playing some syncopated piano music about robots.
On this April 1st episode, Ethan plays Gershwin's only cowboy song, and then transforms "I Love a Piano" into "I Love to Podcast." After a discussion of Dorsey boogie confusion, Ethan plays "Jimmy Dorsey's Boogie" and then an obscure rag by a composer who ate flowers. Upon realizing the podcast studio doors are unlocked, Ethan is rudely interrupted by his 7-year son, who sings a song about jaguars and hijacks the podcast. Our new host informs us that Ethan has been fired. Is this the end of the Carolina Shout?
