It's December, 1944. W-O-R-D Radio station manager Arthur Kensington hopes a special show will raise the ratings and advertising dollars, but his staff is in disarray. There's a dyslexic sound man, a poetry/drama queen, and a pompous crew of actors, including one who has written a new radio play retelling the Nativity as a hard-boiled detective story. On top of that, everyone's hopes are dashed when an anticipated visit from the famous singing Andrews Sisters turns out to be the not-so-famous Epstein Cousins. Oh, and did we mention the orphans, the rival radio station's gang of hoods, and an Army hero who makes an impression on a young man dreaming of war's glory? Mix them all together, and see the wonderful results when W-O-R-D finally goes on the air for the biggest Christmas Eve show ever! About 90 minutes.
