A great B flat hornpipe/reel by Ward Allen.
The tune is named for Frank Ryan, who started radio station CFRA in Ottawa in 1945. (I think we can see his initials in the call letters!) He hired Mac Beattie and the Ottawa Valley Melodiers to perform on the station and later engaged Ken Reynolds to form the "CFRA Happy Wanderers". Ward Allen, Joe Brown, King, Vince LeBeau were all part of this band.
