Is there an audience out there for a sweet, modest ensemble comedy about the staff of a Pittsburgh radio station, WENN, in 1939? Let's hope so. It would be a shame to miss Melinda Mullins's tart, tight performance as a proud actress clinging to the meager fame of one long-past Broadway success. Patti LuPone, a guest star on the Feb. 21 episode of this short-run, 10-episode series, does an amusing, grand-lady turn as a big star who was once Mullins's understudy.
