Missed allusion

Well, it took me a while, but I finally figured out that the title of David Neff's Editor's Bookshelf column, "American (and Un-American) Idols," is an oblique allusion to the "American Idol" television programme. I myself have not actually seen it, but I assume it is a twenty-first century version of the old "Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour." Perhaps I should enter. I could sing some of my psalm arrangements. I'm sure there must be a huge market for that sort of thing.
