Michele Norris corrects a music theme used last week in a story about two soap operas getting canceled.

(Soundbite of music)


We owe our listeners one correction.

(Soundbite of music, "All My Children" theme)

NORRIS: This is the theme to the long-running soap opera, "All My Children," and you should have heard it at the start of our story Friday, when we reported that both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" are getting axed by the network ABC. But instead, some of you heard this.

(Soundbite of music, "General Hospital" theme)

NORRIS: Most soap fans will tell you that's the theme for "General Hospital." Some of you wrote in to correct us, including Richard Burkheart(ph) of Columbus, Georgia, who begged: Don't make Erica Kane sob again.

NORRIS: You're listening to NPR.
