Sherry has an element of fun that I don't think any of the other Blake's had. She was just fun to watch and you couldn't keep your eyes off of her when she was in a scene.

I know Sherry remained close with Michael Zaslow after she left, and when he died, she remained close with his family.

I'm not sure if you all have seen this, but I came across this collection of 96 radio episodes of GL from 1950!

Edit: Another set of 100 episodes

Those are the same episodes. I guess they were just posted by different people. There are 197 consecutive episodes from 1950/1951 that we are VERY lucky to have. It was one of the best times for GL (if not the best).

ITA. That entire stretch of episodes is mesmerizing. I would happily listen to the full run of radio eps of TGL than endure any of the soap episodes being produced on television today.

I can't believe that photo of all the Christina/Blakes exists. I can't believe someone (other than a big fan of the show) would think to take the photo. I can't believe they cared enough to find Cheryl Brown. And I can't believe they were able to get them all together for the photo. It's very cool. I wonder what happened to Cheryl Brown? It looks she hasn't acted since she was a child according to her imdb page. 


Perfectly put, ITA. This is the type of Valentine to the fans one would expect to see in a soap magazine, not People, and I applaud People for it. It disappoints me that SOD never did a series of spreads like this one for Blake. Imagine all of the Vikis, the Dorians, the Jills… the Kevins (oy).

The nice thing is that People continued to make commemorative soap issues (GH's 50th, the end of AMC and OLTL).

Christina is pretty old there...I always thought it was weird that she didn't think of Ed as more of her dad then Roger when she came back. The push and pull of thinking of Ed as her dad but wanting the approval of her bio dad would have been similar to Phillip and one thing to bring them together. But Long seemed to want to obscure that.

I apologize if someone else has corrected this long-standing error, but the name of the character played by JoBeth Williams was Brandy Shillitoe, a name possibly inspired by the British novelist Alan Sillitoe.

Somehow this name was printed somewhere as Brandy Shillooe, and the error has been picked up in other publications, including a book on GL. Robert LaGuardia's THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF TV SOAP OPERAS was either the source of the mistake or perpetuated the mistake. By the way, LaGuardia's book is now selling for $768. Wonder if I still have my old copy?
