The opening of a light-hearted rag in the style of Scott Joplin, inspired by the BBC Radio 4 'Upshares' slot in the PM programme.

Story behind the song
The BBC Radio 4 "PM" programme (5pm to 6pm on weekday evenings) has been playing different arrangements of the "Upstairs Downstairs" theme tune to introduce its report on the finances of the nation. So I thought I'd write a quick ragtime piece inspired by snatches of the tune.
