In today's episode Alan Locher who was a publicist for Guiding Light and As the World Turns used to help his actors behind the camera but then became a star in front of the camera when he started a live streaming show of the actors he used to support. It started as a way to bring a bit of happiness and joy during the pandemic and has turned into a great way for Soap Opera fans to see their "family" again. Alan has done over 350 shows and interviewed over 800 actors. He believe his success of "The Locher Room" is due to people wanting to hear from the actors they used to spend every day with but hadn't seen them in over 10 years. 

Alan also has used his platform for good and has raised over $125k for various charities and he's just getting started. In this show you will learn how he used his previous skills as a publicist to start the show. How he is honoring his parents who were holocaust survivors and what he's learned from interview stars like Jaclyn Smith, Kathie Lee Gifford and Susan Lucci to name a few.
