We theoretically study propagation of light in a vertically coupled whispering gallery mode resonator (WGMR) waveguide consisting of a chain of disc WGMRs etched on the surface of a cylinder made of an optically transparent material. The waveguide is capable of reducing the group velocity of light by as much as a factor of a billion, is much more efficient than usual coupled resonator optical waveguides, and compete with slow light atomic systems. We discuss practical as well as fundamental advantages and disadvantages of the resonator and atomic delay lines.
