Storyline

It is 1930s Pittsburgh, and college student Betty Roberts has won an internship at WENN, a station that specializes in radio shows. She finds that the employees of the shows are just as wacky as the characters they play on the radio. They include: Mackie Bloom, WENN's man of a thousand voices; Hilary Booth, queen of the stage who carries an over-inflated ego; Mr. Foley, WENNs sound effects man who never talks; Tom Eldridge, who is as clueless as a gnat; and Jeffery Singer, who is in a marriage of convenience with Hillary. Each week, we watch how the station members struggle to keep the station going. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Quotes

Betty Roberts: Creatively, what aspect of radio drama most interests you?
Scott Sherwood: It doesn't. Never had much time for radio. Stops me from thinking out loud. Bought a second-hand schooner that had one, but I never listened until I ran up on a reef in Samoa and had to wait almost a week for help. Ever try to eat a barnacle?
Betty Roberts: No.
Scott Sherwood: Don't.
Betty Roberts: I promise not to.

An unsung classic!
4 April 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Remember WENN was an unusual show and a very good one. I became a fan of it while still in the midst of high school. By the time I graduated from university, it was not only long gone but had left a considerably more pathetic AMC in its wake. (Not to say that AMC never shows anything worthwhile anymore--it's just become a situation of "few and far between"!) If only they'd release Remember WENN on DVD or VHS--I'd be an instant buyer.

I'd recommend Remember WENN to any fan of old time radio and/or witty television, but I'm not sure where it's even available for viewing anymore.

If AMC ever decides to show reruns, I suggest you take advantage of the opportunity and watch them!
