Summary, etc.:
"Do YOU want to be Queen for a Day?!" Host Bailey would bellow out those words before each program, to which the audience would reply en masse: "YES!" Four women, each having a sob story to tell, told Bailey why they believed they should be crowned the show's "Queen." After all four stories were told, the audience determined the winner by applause (determined via the "applause meter") and she was presented with an wide array of sponsored prizes. Originally a radio program, this popular show transferred to television, on NBC (1956-60) and ABC (1960-64).
