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>

I loved this show
17 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the most entertaining shows on TV, not to mention AMC. After it went off the air, I lost interesting in the station. They completely changed their lineups and started having commercials. I wish that they would release the entire collection of this show on DVD. I would buy it and show it to all of my friends that have not seen it. I was disappointed in how they left the show in a cliffhanger. Shame on you AMC for taking away one of the most original and unique shows that ever came on. There will never be another Remember WENN, nor will there ever be characters like those on this show. Each were so different and well acted.
