GL: Words cannot express…

Words cannot express what I’m feeling right now.
CBS has officially cancelled Guiding Light. Not an April Fool’s Joke. It feels like a giant kick in the chest, one that pole-axes you into not being able to breathe.

Alternative Approaches to Keep GL On The Air

Also, go over to the Big Purple Dreams fan-forum and find other ways to help.

Yes, it is a television show. But one that has been breaking down barriers and creating wonderful stories. More coherent thoughts later…maybe.

I was thinking, just as GL moved from Radio to Television many years ago as it searched out new mediums, now is the time to move towards a new medium: cable, DirecTV, web-based programming. There is an audience and we will marshall ahead.
