f my memory is correct, the Spauldings and Bauers did not live next to each other, but their back yards were adjacent.  Ed commented that the Spauling house was "up the hill" from his house, implying the Spauldings lived in a nicer neighborhood.

Yes, their backyard's were adjacent, that is how Alan and Rita got up to their..canoodling! But it was supposed to be the "smaller" house boring Hope wanted.(sorry but ER's Hope was dull as hell, no man wouldnt choose to get with Rita instead of her..) .but later just became the mansion...as late as JFP the yards connected...(Alex is trying to find out info from dimbulb Lucy at the Bauer BBQ and suggest she could show her the mansion, they just needed to go through those hedges and they would be in her yard.."  During Long's time the Lewises, Chamberlins and Spaudlings all lived on "the Hill."  I am not sure if the Bauers did as the backyards connected...and I can't believe I am writing about the georgraphy of a fictional town.

Was this on air or in a press announcement ?

 

I read that the Bauers were first called "The Baums" from a history book. Whether it's true or not is anybody's guess. I don't think any of us were alive back then to listen first-hand. Unfortunately. I would tend to think that it's true because it seems way too random a piece of information to be made up.

I'm super late to the party but I just found out about Bandstandmike's YouTube takedown!  I had half a mind to archive them but I never got around to it. I'm so sad.

 

I haven't really followed GL but it was a goldmine of Cynthia Watros as Annie and the Maureen Bauer death story.

 

Now I'm contemplating opening up a vault for GL episodes, like I have with Y&R + B&B. Hopefully between all of us we can recover much of that collection and perhaps get Mike motivated again to upload there instead.

My theory is that bandstandmike may have had more episodes of Guiding Light than what was OK with whoever had the power to take it down.

 

Some say copyright.

 

I say money.

 

If there is more money that can be made by something—and someone feels they are potentially cheated out of making more money—then action will get taken.

Yes! I don’t know of your other vaults since I don’t watch those showed but yes that what we need - a classic GL vault. Please do it. I used to have stuff on tape but I moved (downsized) not too long ago and the old VHS tapes were a casualty of that. Also, I hadn’t had an desire to revisit my former love of GL until the Locher Room reunions and the lockdown. Now I’m “obsessed” with finding full episodes. Cobbling episodes together here and there on YouTube has become a challenge without Bandstandmike’s orderly videos.
