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: Generally, Gertie, we try to avoid writing dialogue for our cast that is impossible to pronounce?
Gertude 'Gertie' Reece: Oh, really?
Betty Roberts: Yes. That type of torturous tongue-twisting tends to be tantamount to terrifying and intimidating to our troop. I mean, please continue.

wonderful nostalgia
11 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

For people who like to slow life down and visit the relaxing innocence of times long gone, "Remember WENN" was a wonderful means to accomplishing this. I always looked eagerly ahead to the weekly visits with my radio friends in Pittsburgh. But, like those days of yore, the visits have ceased and all I have are memories. The best memory I have is one which I relive on tape every year at this time - the episode known as "Christmas in the Airwaves". The cast is at their charming best here and the music is fantastic. Peter Noone does a wonderful rendition of "Winter Wonderland" and Betty Buckley is superb with the two original Christmas songs written by Rupert Holmes. This was a great Christmas present from AMC to the fans of this show but watching it every year makes me miss "Remember WENN" all the more.
