Playing to the Crowd

My Granddad - a comedy writer in the Golden Age of Radio - always said: "Know your audience."

Richard Horner played to the crowd when he chose Chuck McCabe's song, "I'd Rather be in Redding" for the Redding Senior Idol Contest. He took second place in the contest, on stage at the Cascade Theatre in front of a sell-out crowd.

We heard him sing this at the Post Office -- backed up by songwriter Chuck McCabe - and Horner did a terrific job.
