Guitar Title Awaits Those with 'Airness' Alex Cohen of member station KQED sends us today's audio postcard from Los Angeles -- the scene of tonight's first-ever U.S. Air Guitar Competition. Judges won't be rating musical talent -- since contestants may have none whatsoever. Rather they'll be rating the competitors on technique, charisma, stage presence and a quality called "airness."
