Sunset Beach as far as soaps go. I think it was in 1999.

As for the very first TV show I filmed, I think it was Argentinian Muneca Brava.

Ah, the memories.

It was the 80's, we had one vcr, it was CBS Y&R, B&B, sometimes at 2pm it was Another World or

ATWT. I had to watch AMC, OLTL, DOOL live..lol At 3 it was GH, Santa Barbara or Guiding Light. The local NBC station kept changing SB to morning so usually GH was taped.

I bought my first VCR as a college student in 1986 because I had a class that conflicted with AMC.

Passions... I used to skip school (not the whole day... just the last two or three periods) Junior year when my recorder wasn't working just so I could watch certain episodes.

AW and OLTL around 1976 on a big old clunky $1,000 VHS. I had boxes and boxes of tapes in my basement for years which was a real pain in the neck. I've recycled most of them when I started archiving Lizard Lick Towing and The Chew.

1983 - DAYS shortly after the Salem Slasher murders began. I had been following that story via weekly recaps in the paper until my family got a VCR & I started recording a few days before Trista Evans Bradford was killed.

They had VCR's in 1976?

Steve, how much was a VCR in 1986?

For me, my first VHS taping was August 1995 when I started back up in school (7th grade) and found myself not wanting to miss Days of Our Lives, which I got hooked on a month prior.

Is it weird that I totally remember the first episode I taped? It was when John almost died in the magician tank that Tony rigged. Meanwhile, Bo and Hope traveled to Santa Rosa to get a divorce and were haunted by memories of the past. Ooh... :)
