We're on a mission. It's called finding a home for ATWT (As The World Turns) and GL (Guiding Light). It's an ambitious project. This week we will be on air every night leading up to the CBS Finale of ATWT. We're geared up and ready to wage a new campaign that is smart, ambitious and thinking outside the box. Tonight, we recap day one of Surge on Soaps Week with Tami King from Save Our Soaps and Nanci Hughes from the New York Soaps Examiner.

The Save Our Soaps folks have banded together to have a rally at CBS Studios in NYC on September 20th. Other fans who can’t make it to New York have expressed interest in having simultaneous rallies at local CBS affiliates including Boston, Phoenix, Vermont and Texas! Tonight we'll catch up on the grass roots effort and share ideas on how to make Surge on Soaps Week a media story by week's end.
Tonight we air at a special time - 9PM Eastern. If you host a soap themed BlogTalkRadio Show, we want you to get involved. We've got to band together to make a point. We're all about leaving egos at the door and coming to a consensus that props up what the pundits say is a"dying genre". If you are a die hard soap fan, a soap blogger or (again) a radio host. Come on down and get on our train!
We’ve got some ambitious programs under way as well as discussion of the new OwnUpOprah.com which is being launched as a way of reaching Oprah Winfrey and the folks at HARPO to plead the case of soap fans. While this conversation is about the "end" of ATWT, we welcome fans of other soaps to tune in, share and listen to why ALL soap fans need to band together to resuscitate a genre on life support.
