Turn off the Guiding Light, the party's over

I never watched daytime soaps, mainly because One, I'm usually at school or at work...Two, I prefer game shows or watching something else and Three, soap operas are not my thing.

That being said, I heard that CBS is cancelling Guiding Light after 72 years on radio and television combined.

That's more seasons than the Lawrence Welk Show has been on, and get this....when the soap first debuted on NBC radio as a 15-minute program, the Maestro was still doing one-nighters with his band across the Midwest.

And Champagne Music would not be formed until a year

Granted I never watched the soap, I have to appreciate and admire it's longevity and popularity...on the same level as the Welk Show.

I wonder if any of the Music Makers are fans of Guiding Light?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
