‘Talk to Me’

I enjoyed Stephen Winzenburg’s article “Do You Remember ‘Talk to Me’?” in the Sept. 7 issue. As a broadcast veteran since the early ‘60s, I’ve always watched with interest any time our industry is portrayed in other media, and I remember most of the TV shows cited by Winzenburg.

One program that should have been included is “Remember WENN,” a skillfully crafted, thoroughly entertaining original series carried on cable’s American Movie Classics from January 1996 to September 1998.

The series was the brainchild of Rupert Holmes; it was set in Pittsburgh at fictional radio station WENN just before World War II. There are several websites dedicated to the show and many — perhaps all 56 — of the episodes are available for viewing on the Web.

If any of you missed “Remember WENN,” please explore and enjoy this gem of the radio-on-TV genre.
