I’m Looking Forward To This, Michael! 😀

Hope you ask Melissa Archer if she is going to GH. How can John McBain go without Natalie and LIam?? Jolie fans supported their story line for 8 yrs. Reunited before the show ends and he dumps her or she is killed off?? Loyal fans don’t deserve this in order to create an arc to help save GH.

Please ask the most important question in light of the fact that important characters are not being asked to join GH, How long is this story arc. lets not forget GH Nights was built on arcs. and I beleive this is that bringing the alumni back as well as oltl cast this is going to go out with a bang for both shows.

Please get details from Alderson about the move to GH. When were they first approached with the idea? When did they start taping? What about Jack, Sam, and Natalie? Will there be any explanation within GH if the characters aren’t there? Is there any possibility of other OLTL characters following? Was Archer ever approached? Is there any possibility she might appear in the future? Do JPL and FF have any work offers? Where might we see them next? How satisfied were all three with the ending of OLTL? Is there anything they would change for their characters? How hard were the final tapings for cast and crew? What was their reactions to Prospect Park dropping their plans? Looking forward to all two hours of your interview.

David, I advicce you to keep posting this on this site so that Michael can see it. It’s so many POST that are coming in, he can’t see and answer them all. Also, find his name on this site where he has replied to someone, and POST your questions there. Or find on the site where he it says “contact me” and send him those questions directly BC they are good questions, and some I like to know the answers to as well.

Wishing Michael a VERY Happy Birthday. I know its a bittersweet one, with the Drama of the cancelation and final show of Your Beloved: One Life To Life. It was the 1st soap I started watching, I could not stop the tears today. You read my blog, and so you know how deeply I am affected by this. I hope your birthday is spend doing something special, and fun, even if its in a quiet sense (reflexing on the joy that OLTL -and the overall genre has brought you. May God Bless you. Happy Birthday.

Please ask what have their lives been like since OLTL ended for them in November? How did they get through the holidays? Have they missed the other cast members and crew? Are they grieving for the loss of the show? Can they offer any advice to fans on how to get through this?

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.
