Uncle Charlie is about baseball, specifically curve balls. Uncle Charlie is one nickname for the curveball. It has a program - the pitcher concentrates, shakes off a signal from the catcher, throws the curveball (Uncle Charlie). The batter swings and misses. The umpire shouts "Strike One". The batter argues with the umpire. This is repeated, with modulation and slight variation, for strike two and three. Then the angry batter kicks dirt on home plate and he is ejected from the game by the umpire. A bench-clearing brawl errupts, where both teams are fighting on the baseball field. Uncle Charlie laughs at the hooligans and celebrates in the end. All of this in two and a half minutes!

Secret Love is my octatonic arrangement of the Sammy Fain and Paul Webster song that Doris Day made famous in her film "Calamity Jane" in 1953. The octatonic parts are in the cadenzas at the begining and near the end, as well as several fill-ins on long melody notes.
