Guiding Light turns 72 today. The first radio broadcast of GL was January 25, 1937. (The initial TV broadcast was June 1952.)
Just recently, I talked a bit about how the beginning of GL happened in my backyard in this post.
Meanwhile, Roger Newcomb at We Love Soaps is such a great historian for all of the shows, and has a bit about GL’s anniversary here.
Here’s a few clips of the 70th anniversary show – one of the best GL has ever broadcast.
