Robin Strasser and Robert Woods Added as Guests on "The View's Salute to OLTL"!

Courtesy/ABC

Thank Goodness, The View had the forethought to include (and not forget, because that would have have been a HUGE mistake) the incomporable Robin Strasser (Dorian) to their tribute show on One Life to Live!

It will be great to see Robin and Erika Slezak (Viki), who is slated as the episode’s special co-host, reunited on The View Salutes One Life to Live airing January 13th just a few hours before the final episode of OLTL airs across the county!

In addition, another stellar One Life star, Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) has also been added to the line-up!  We had also heard via Twitter from Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan) last week that she would also be appearing on the episode.  So, get out your hankies for this one folks!  And, we will keep you posted over the next few weeks as the line-up for the show continues to evolve!

Hats off to The View for getting “it” right… too bad ABC can’t do the same and renew One Life To Live!

She is kind of like fireworks isn’t she? Love it! Wish Tuc Watkins would be on the show with her.

Very good! It would be great to see the actors who play Tina, Cord, Alex, Gabrielle, Max, Todd, Blair, Victor, Tea, Starr, Matthew, Rex, Gigi, Clint, Troy, Lindsey and Nigel all on there also.
I seriously hope that Dorian taped for the last episode somehow. I wish it was a surprise that none of us would know about and would be surprised about. I can dream.

It means a lot to me as a Dorian Lord and Robin Strasser fan to see her on the last day OLTL airs since she will not be in the finale. Awesome news!

So true. Hope she is feeling better.

I so enjoyed The View’s tribute to AMC, and I look forward to their tribute episode to One Life To Live. I am sure it will be spectacular, as I enjoy everyone on that show. I am happy that TBTB at The View had the insight to invite Robin Strasser, as when you say One Life To Live, Robin and Erika are the first two that come to mind. I am happy that Bo and Nora will also be on. I hope Michael Easton and others are on the show as well. I honestly still cannot wrap my head around the fact that this wonderful show will soon be – no more.

It’s disturbing having to say goodbye because the stories are really getting good these days. Unlike Guiding Light and All My Children who were nothing more than shadows of their former selves during their final years, One Life to Live is still the same great soap that we have come to enjoy over the past 25 years.

I could not agree more. I had pretty much quit watching GL, ATWT & AMC by the time they went off the air but I was very upset to lose them because you can always go back to them when they “cycle through” & get good again. Just to know they are still there & I still kept up with them even if I wasn’t watching daily. But I have never lost a show that was FANTASTIC every single day, a show that I never, ever miss & sometimes even watch again at night on Soapnet. Losing OLTL will be a huge loss in my daily life & I dread it so much. There are dozens of exciting things that we will never see, never know. I love everyone on that show & will miss it more than I can say.

I enjoy watching ‘The View’. So glad to read of the salute by them to OLTL cast and farewell show. Marking it on my calender as a MUST WATCH! (((*_*))) ~ It is so sad that ABC’s Soap Operas are now ‘a thing of the past’. I sooo agree {with other fans} that see the solution is for OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) to research the dollars, sponsorship, and cost of making her OWN ‘high definition’ will blow-up her network ratings and our favorite soap can remain on television. Hail Hail to cable!!!!!

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.

Saturday morning at 10amPST/1PMEST on Palm Springs iHub Radio, there will be a special hour tribute to the late soap veteran John Callahan who passed away last week at 66.

Callahan hosted his own show on the station, and to honor him the stations owner John McMullen, along with several of Callahan’s former All My Children co-stars including: Bobbie Eakes (Ex-Krystal), Walt Willey (Ex-Jack) , and Julia Barr (Ex-Brooke)  will also be part of the live broadcast special event, along with LIVE magazine TV host Melissa Neiderman, and other longtime friends and colleagues of Callahan’s.

As some know, John Callahan was a longtime resident of the Coachella Valley. From 2018 on he continued to be a part of the station with his weekly show all the way up until his death.

John’s soap resume was impressive, not only from his time as All My Children;s Edmund Grey, but also as General Hospital’s Leo Russell, Santa Barbara’s Craig Hunt, and Days of our Lives, Dr. Baker, plus his primetime roles including on Falcon Crest.

Following iHub Radio’s special broadcast, the tribute program will be available as an on-demand show via the iHubRadio.com home page.

So, let us know if you will be listening or caught the special broadcast honoring John today in the comment section below.
