Welcome to the GUIDING LIGHT Memory Project

Hello, GL fans!

As some of you may know, in April of this year (2006), I started an archive project, collecting as much footage from the going-on-70 year history of GUIDING LIGHT as possible. GL is the longest running continuing story in the history of entertainment, having begun on the radio on January 25, 1937. I'm proud and pleased to be able to present to my fellow GL fans a rich archive of material through which viewers can experience again many of the best moments from the long history of the show.

I have two large compilations of GL clips up at YouTube. The total between the two lists is well over 300 clips and both lists are being constantly updated and added to. The clips range from 1953 to 2006 and are a celebration of the many wonderful moments provided to us by this amazing show. the lists are located here:


The clips in the "classicGL" list come courtesy of raven1970a. The "ivnkplng" clips are from all other sources. None of these clips were personally created by me, with the exceptions of the "mvids" (GL music videos).

I'll be using this blog to let you know what's already there and also what is coming. Feel free to discuss anything with me here or let me know what you'd like to see. I'll post again soon

One more comment....I really like how the clips (at least the first one, when there's a series) are dated. This is very helpful when looking through them to get a good idea of time reference.
Thanks again!
