From Library Journal
To some this book might be considered a trivia footnotean entire volume devoted to a soap opera. But Guiding Light is the longest-running radio/TV drama in history, now celebrating its 50th year. In the course of this, it has given a career start to many well-known actors and actresses. The series, although optimistic in tone, has dealt in a reasonably realistic way with many social issues throughout its long run. And what makes this book appealing is the author's enthusiasm in tracing the history of the show without being patronizing or condescending. Schemering has done a good job of research, and there are fascinating excerpts from the scripts, a listing of all the characters, and numerous photographs. A good choice for public libraries.
