    Was there a story about Judy Garland's appearance that she was not going to go on but then decided to go on the last minute? I know read something about it in the WML book but cannot remember.

    You do know that the board you're posting on is linked to a guide that provides information about episodes of the show, right? This story is covered in the Notes for this episode.

    Yes I do.. in fact I was reading about the episode this morning but did not see the Gil Fates story of Judy Garland listed this morning . . unless I was still drowsy from sleep.. in any event I did read it now and found it very interesting. Thank you.

    I posted John's note in the Yahoo group:

    You may want to check out the oral history interview with Bennett Cerf at the following website:

    http://www.columbia.edu/cu/lweb/digital/collections/nny/cerfb/index.html

    I listened to the part covering "What's My Line?" (session 16, listed in the table of contents) and it was great.
