This is a show that also dearly love* radio. APonTV ~ So do the talent and staff who keep Pittsburgh's struggling WENN on the air with iU everything-but-the-kitchen-sink schedule of live programs. For this is 1941. and WENN*s .tiny staff swells with wonder exploring what radio can do. Viewers watching "Remember WENN- will likely succumb to wonder, too. This is a show that casts a sweet, funny spell. "Remember WENN" returns to American Movie Classics for a new season of 13 weekly half- hours Friday at 10 p.m. EOT, plugged into the lineup of vintage melodramas and comedies as if it came from a film vault sealed 50 years ago. Explains producer Howard Meltzer, "AMC wanted to create a show where viewers tuning in couldn't immediately tell if it was one of th« network's classic movies, or original programming." Accordingly, "Remember WENN" takes its cue from those flicks, replicating the exuberance and ideals in which Hollywood once costumed American life. In WEN>Ts studio make-believe thrives dramatically. And beyond WENN's cozy biosphere, a larger world we never glimpoe (or need to) sweep* staffers into wartime intrigue and other global misadventures. It's a pretty exciting vantage point for B«tty Roberta, WENN's pip of a writer and th< viewer's surrogate. Played by Amanda Naughton, she's the girl next door (if next door happens to be in Elkhart, Ind.) and first among equals in the band of daffy but endearing regulars. The a«r is thick with artful bickering from thespian-lovers Jeff (Hugh O'Gorman) and Hilary (Melinda Mullins), with the many voices of announcer Mackie Bloom (Christopher Murray), with eound-effect* wizardry by mut« Mr. Foley (Tom Bockett). Lik« any radio station, isolated yet always reaching out, WENN lives by it* words and ideas. Dreaming thes« up is Rupert Holmes, the Tony Award winner who authors every script, aa well as composing the serie«' score and songs for the occasional musical episode. "One thing I always loved about his writing was how it was so layered," says Meltxer, who sought out Holmes for the project. "I also happened to know that he's a complete nut for the '30s and '40s." When "Remember WENN" premiered four seasons ago, the year, was 1939. "It was an era where America was still young and naive, while Europe had started going through the war," Meltxer says. "We wanted to capture the fe«l of what was going on in the country at that time, and in the world, and in entertainment. A radio station lends itself to all that perfectly." Thanks to Melticr, Holmes and fellow "WENN"-ers, the tone never strays, neve hits a false note. Shot with a single camera on a Queens sound) stage, the look is an art deco feast. The period wardrobe is a treat. And names like Mackie Bloom and Maple LaMarsh ring as true to their time as the 1939 Life maga- rine in the station's waiting room. With no laugh track to slow its crackling pace, the dialogue is snappy and the wordplay delicious. Hear the irate diva Hilary giving Mackie what-for on the air (never mind why): "I've been reciting the 'Miaah of Farewell'," he trie* to explain. "You'll be missing your legs ar saying farewell to arms when I*i done with you! You'll be a colon tura soprano with the Eunut Tabernacle Choir!" Who could fail to love this saf hold of smart threads and clevi banter, of scrappy resolve ar goodhearted teamwork? WEN is a tender place, where ar harshness from the outside is a< milled only in selective, mai nered doses, just to spice thirij up. "Remember WENN" also ca; lures the wistfulncas of an et broadcasting on borrowed tin- Even station manager Set Sherwood (Kevin CXRourk imagines a gadget that would 1 like movies in .your living roo: like radio with pictures. In an e isode last season, he dubbed "viaio?" On the other hand, wl could ever build such a thing? Watching from the '90s, < know someone will, and soo And we know TV will gp< WENN's demise. But the char of "Remember WENN" is,- tl characters don't know and aret worried. In truth, they dot worry about much. Just abo each other, and what's next i the air. That's worth remembering.

Louise Woodward faces battle to rebuild life ELTON, England (AP) — Amid the yelUw ribbons, banners and welcome-borne cakes decorated with photo* of Louise • Woodward's face, the people of her quiet north England village wondered Wednesday if the former au pair would ever truly be able to resume her life here. "People will always say, That's Louise Woodward," said one, doubtful resident, oil worker Thomas Doyle. "The name is infamous." "She has said she wants to go to university, but if I were her, I would cbxxwe London — it's more anonymous," Rachel Park said as she pushed a stroller along the main street of Elton. On Tueeday, the highest court in Massachusetts cleared the way for Woodward's return to her hometown, upholding a rulii that fre«d her immediately aft her conviction in the Feb. 1997, death of 9-month-old Mi thew Eappen. Woodward's lawyer said h passport was returned Wedn< day and that she could be head home by the end of the day. Few here really know the 2 year-old Ms. Woodward, c scribed as a quiet woman frorr clooe, churchgoing family who c cided to travel in the Unit States for a year while she < bated whether to go to college. "I'm sure she just wants to home and try to get back to TV mal," said Julie Smith, propric of the Rigger pub, where the ca p*ign to secure Woodward's lease was born.
