SYNOPSIS: Set in a little north woods Minnesota bar, Gunner Johnson is the host of a radio show called, "Crappie Talk," devoted entirely to ice fishing for Crappies. Gunner has no listeners, so he loses his only advertiser, Kanutes Bait Mart and Deer Petting Farm. Gunners wife, Clara, hosts "Book Beat." She has all the listeners, and all the advertisers. Gunner has issues with that. Problems escalate for the competitive couple, and are compounded when two, fish-out-of-water, Brooklyn Italians come to the rural Minnesota town, buy the radio station, and turn everything on its ear.
Dont Hug Me, Were Family is the sixth in the Dont Hug Me franchise of musical comedies. The previous five "Don't Hug Me's" have had over 200 productions around the U.S. and are published by Samuel French.

Dont Hug Me, Were Family has 14 original songs and 12 North Woods radio jingles.
