Will It Play In Peoria? 'Morning Edition' Hopes So


Good morning, I'm David Greene. So will it play in Peoria? It's on the line for MORNING EDITION, since we're broadcasting here today. The will-it-play line dates to vaudeville days. Groucho Marx made it famous. You know, Peoria was a good test. The crowds were known for being hard to please, and if a show bombed, the Peoria Star Journal wrote the production would be rewritten, recast or just plain cancelled. Let me just ask the audience here - how are we doing?


GREENE: All right, well, we are still on the air. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
