Patrick is back, and is joined by Dan Gursky! While Jim continues to take some time off, they decide to revisit the use of the French horn in popular music.
FUN FACT: The French horn is actually not french. It’s actually German! According to Normans Musical Instruments, the International Horn Society declared, in 1971, that the “French horn” should simply be called a “horn” when used in English. Obviously, this declaration did not catch on.
