I’m Domingo. I play 1920s and 30s piano music. Every week, I’ll be pulling three songs out of my collection of over 3,000 pieces of sheet music and playing them for you.
America asked, and America got what she wanted… Episode 7 of Domingo and His Piano! But we’ll pretend it’s a BBC series that only releases 6 episodes a season and this is the SEASON 2 PREMIER!!! Get hype for some tunes inspired by the extreme cultural appropriation that occurs every year around the 5th of May. Two—count them, TWO—songs about Hot Tamales and one song with Spanish lyrics by a 1920s Latinx legend that you knew nothing about. And let’s throw some McCarthyism in there, shall we?
This week's episode is very special to me, as I get to sit down and talk with Wayne Bryan about his lifelong relationship with the 1926 musical GOOD NEWS. And of course, I have most of the sheet music from that show! I'll feature three, specifically.

This week, three very different songs. A piece about returning home to the south, another about the inability to let go, and finally, a silly tune about finding a significant other with money.
This week, a show dedicated to the Ukulele, featuring two songs originally recorded by Johnny Marvin. Avail yourselves to my embarrassing imitation of Cliff Edwards’s scat singing.
This week, lots of songs about love. Love and anonymity. Love and shellfish. Love, sex, and parakeets. All here. Plus, some interesting things about my sheet music.
This week, some good advice for all of us isolating at home, choice words to say during a breakup, and a dope who is really happy to have a girlfriend. Plus, I talk about my piano.
