Thelma and Patsy have travelled to New York to audition for a radio show but despite their enthusiasm, they are seemingly ignored by just about everybody they come in contact with.  Patsy seizes every possible opportunity to demonstrate her tap-dance skills, whilst Thelma tries hard to convince others of her own skills.
Mr. Campbell (Dell Henderson) confronts the station owner to complain that his son was considered untalented and rejected from the show.
