Last night, Silas Kain of Delibernation BlogTalkRadio Show – and a Soapbox1 contributor – launched his Surge on Soaps week.
We all know that soaps are being cancelled right and left….As The World Turns will air its final show on CBS this Friday…
Silas refuses to acknowledge that this will actually be the FINAL show for ATWT. He insists a new home for the show will be found….and I gotta tell ya, with his drive, it can be done!
But it cannot be done by a few…..there is strength in numbers.
Sooooo Silas and his gang needs YOUR help….He will be broadcasting every day this week on his Delibernation BlogTalkRadio show.
The cancellation of soaps affects EVERYONE connected to the genre, whether it be fan, actor, crew….even nearby businesses.
The Day One podcast is located at the bottom of this entry. It includes information about a huge rally that will take place outside the CBS studios in New York City on Monday and other such rallies around the country in protest of the ATWT cancellation.
Listen to it – and listen to it carefully.
And please join Silas tonight at 10 p.m.
Silas has some pretty innovative ideas….apparently the most provacative will be released on his Wednesday podcast.
But, tonight, at 10 p.m. he will be discussing the OwnupOprah.com movement, which aims to get Oprah Winfrey involved in saving the soap genre.
This is BIGGER than just the cancellation of Guiding Light or ATWT….Rumors are rampant for the past year that One Life To Live is next up on the chopping block (and you know where there’s smoke, there’s fire)!
So….listen to last night’s podcast below – and join Silas for tonight’s podcast.
To quote Silas – “We’re all in this together!”
