He has recently joined a vintage soap opera board on Facebook. Now that he is a member, I wonder if folks there will refrain from giving their honest opinions of his "interviewing" style, just out of courtesy. I don't want his feelings slaughtered, of course, but it will be unfortunate if other members can no longer say what they truly think, and must stifle themselves.

Exactly. When you host any kind of show, I think your guests and your viewers deserve more scintillating moderating than "wow...wow...wow...that's crazy". But more than that, he doesn't do his homework and often gets facts wrong. If he would work at it more and listen to constructive feedback, his show would be so much better. I don't want his feelings hurt, either. Constructive criticism is different than just bashing someone.

I mentioned really liking his show with Krista Tesreau and Mark Lewis. Oddly enough, I think Mark Lewis directed a play I saw at Wheaton College many years ago. I read he's been there since 1995, and my church youth group traveled from Cleveland to Chicago and saw that play in 1997. I'll have to write him and check. I have long since forgotten the name of that play.

Hey not sure if everyone is aware but since 2019 TV guide has been uploaded to the internet archive from Mar 1953 and so far to Dec 1955. TV guide ran daily synopsis for GL and others (some days are missing here and there) They are usually just one sentence, but if you are interested in 50's GL or 50's TV in general check it out. They also sometimes have LOL, SFT and sometimes the other soaps of the day as well. 

It is in the American Libraries - Media History Digital Library - Filter to 1953 and Chicago and all the issues are there (maybe just one missing) 

Here is an example

Is TV guide the name of the publication ? I couldn't find it when I tried.

Yeah it is. For some reason the files do not come up with the covers. Here is a screenshot with results. This is just from filtering 1953. You can then filter further to just reduce it to TV Guide only

Thank you for posting this. Can anyone out there clarify for me if Lynne Adams *wanted* to leave TGL, or if the Dobsons decided to simply write out Leslie (as they had earlier with Joe Werner) to free Mike up for new romantic entanglements.

I still wish Mike and Leslie would have had a son or daughter. I suppose that might have been too weird at that time in the 1970's to have a child who would have had the same mother and two different fathers...who were also brothers! Or, had that already happened on another soap and I just can't recall it...?

Also, for curiosity's sake - I recall that Don Stewart had better chemistry with Barbara Rodell versus Lynne Adams. Can anyone clarify that, as well?
