Every Wednesday on Performance Today, pianist and composer Bruce Adolphe adds a classical twist to the "name that tune" game. He re-writes a popular melody in the style of a classical composer and challenges a listener — teamed with NPR's Fred Child — to identify both. This week's contestant is Betty Warner of Charleston, West Virginia.
