Today in Soap Opera History

On this date in...

1949: The radio version of THE BRIGHTER DAY aired its final episode on NBC Radio. It moved to CBS Radio the following Monday. Typical of an Irna Phillips soap, the show opened with an epigraph: Our years are as the falling leaves -- we live, we love, we dream, and then we go. But somehow we keep hoping, don't we, that our dreams come true on that brighter day.

Celebrating a birthday today are:
Kevin Bacon (ex-Tim, GUIDING LIGHT; ex-Todd, SEARCH FOR TOMORROW) - 53
David Elliott (ex-Billy, THE DOCTORS) - 52
Valarie Pettiford (ex-Shelia, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; ex-Courtney, ANOTHER WORLD) - 51
Michael Weatherly (ex-Cooper, LOVING/THE CITY) - 43
