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.

Leave SFK alone! Wouldn't you much rather watch Carla Hall whip up some of her Granny's fried okra than a classic Viki vs. Dorian fight?

I was used to my mom taping the whole ABC line up when I was growing up, but the first soap I ever made it my business to tape for myself was OLTL during the DID s/l.

DAYS. We didn't have cable, but my mom's friend would tape it for us and bring it to us. There was no way I was missing watching Vivian's plot to bury Carly alive.

i remember when i forst found the online soap world. it must have been 2001 when I was in 7th grade. I started to go into the AOL Soaps chat room. Well i got to know a lot of the posters on there and they were most older, and a lot of them started sending me old tapes of soaps they had (to my mothers work, who was very freaked out that retired people wanted to send her 12 yearold son stuff until she saw it really was soap stuff). I still have all of them, a ton of 80's Y&R and Days mostly. I also had a friend whos grandma died and they found a box of 100's of soap opera magaines from the 70's and 80's they gave to me, but it turned out only the top half were magazines and the bottom of each box were tapes of daytime tv from the 80's. I really should figure out how to upload these.

First were Y&R and Days around 97/98. Of course here in Australia we were 3 1/2 years behind so I was taping episodes from around early 1994 up until US episodes from 1999.
