A friend of Tracey's has worked very hard to archive Guiding Light episodes. Ron took over the role of Alan Spaulding in July of 1994. Below is the playlist containing material leading up to and including "Alan's Return."

Thanks to Mike for his hard work and dedication to help preserve and make available Guiding Light footage featuring both Ron Raines and Marj Dusay. Beginning this week I am going to begin posting, in order, Ron's debut and the ensuing storyline featured on Mike's YouTube Channel.
This video clip is a little different than the rest. It contains full scenes not only with Ron as "Alan Spaulding" but many of your favorite Guiding Light actors and charcters from the past. So sit back and enjoy these classic clips of Ron during his early days on the set of Guiding Light. A special thanks to Sara for making these archivial clips available!
This was an interesting story. Ron often jokes about them having asked him to do an English accent when he was born and raised in Texas!
Alan disrupts the hearing when he lashes out at Phillip, but soon becomes delusional and breaks down in front of the court room.
Guiding Light fans often asked why we never got to hear "Alan"/Ron sing, but there was one classic Christmas moment when "Alan" did sing. While it may have been too brief, it is one of the things that make this clip a wonderful Spaulding Christmas memory. Ron and Marj Dusay (Alexandra) shine in this classic clip and prove why they are the best brother and sister duo to ever hit television!
This clip is from 1997 and features Ron along with Cynthia Watros as "Annie Dutton." Also appearing a young Hayden Panetiere as "Elizabeth 'Lizzie" Spaulding." Please feel free to comment.
Ron took over the role of Alan Spaulding in 1994 and played the character until the show went dark in 2009. He received Emmy nominations for his work on GL and we try to feature his work here on this blog. We encourage discussion.
