“WMKS” Is a 1935 Barn-Style Radio Show

“WMKS is a microcosm of America on stage, and a celebration of tenacity,” claims director Allison Bergman. “A family coming together, regardless of their differences, and fighting for what they know is right. The format is a unique hybrid. Its music we all know, but it’s contextualized in a way that makes the familiar seem new.”
