Beethoven on old radio

In the episode of The Fat Man entitled, "The Lost Penny," the case is solved by Brad Runyon by knowing that a Beethoven rondo is commonly known as Rage (called Fury by Runyon) Over a Lost Penny." Pretty good knowledge of classical music by a flatfoot, I thought.

Incidentally, the theme music for this program features a tuba - probably the only instance of that in old time radio.
