Wrong thread. Sorry.

 

Heartbreaking news about Robyn Millan, and her last years. Thank you for finding this @jam6242. I'm glad Danny Hill's audio recordings of her are still available as they really changed my opinion of her work after just seeing her on Ryan's Hope.

I have discovered that I have a tape recording of the original theme music, (opening and close and announcer) to "Where the Heart Is," taped in the summer of 1970. To my knowledge, (correct me if I'm wrong) this is not extant on the Web, however, I'd be afraid to post lest I violate ASCAP or other copyright laws. Have no idea who wrote it, but the visual was a butterfly in flight, photographed in slow motion.

I just watched Robyn Milan on a 1973 episode of Hawaii Five-0. She played the wife of Bo Hopkins (Dynasty etc....) She, her husband( Bo), her husbands parents (Slim Pickens & Barbara Baxley) and little mute sister were a family of serial killers who wiped out people when they needed money. At the end when they all get arrested, the mother of the clan tells a horrified Steve McGarrett when he asks them why, she say's they weren't kin, so it doesn't matter. Dead people don't need money.

If you want to share it, you can post it to your Google Drive or MediaFire. Just change the name from "Where the Heart Is" to avoid the Internet police. That's how I privately share things from time to time.

I'll check into doing this, if there is sufficient interest out there. It's the theme I best remember for the show, low key, clarinet I believe...I also have a snatch of dialogue from "Search for Tomorrow" from that same summer between a character named "Ida," and a younger woman on Ida's front porch.

I'd totally be interested. There's so little surviving of WHERE THE HEART IS, that any piece of the show is welcome.

I think there's probably a -85934805% chance of anyone at all giving you grief over posting this on YouTube. There are literally hundreds of video clips of much more well-known soaps' theme songs (video and audio) online. You're not getting arrested or fined for posting this one.

If you're still wary, you can upload the clip, send it to me, and I'll post it on my account. I ain't scurred.

Yeah, opening/closing credits tend to be fine, just like posting individual scenes. It's full episodes that tend to get people in trouble (and even then it just amounts to YouTube pulling down the episode rather than any legal consequences).

Outside of this group I think there are 7 people who even knew about the shows existence and only 2 of them watched when it was on the air. It'll be safe.

How very John Waters. Seriously, Divine could have been the matriarch of a family like that.

I'll get on it. Please be patient. My techno guru brother will have to help. I'll also include a Search for Tomorrow dialogue clip and Connie Eaton's vocal of the title theme from the "Best of Everything," done as a nightclub scene on the 9/7/70 episode.

Help Requested:

 

Vis a vis the "Where the Heart Is," and supplemental audio material, need some technological advice.

 

Have had a local electronics shop transfer the tape to a CD, however, we do not have a CD drawer on our laptop.

 

How can my brother capture the applicable soap segments from the CD and translate/transfer them into a collective format that can be sent to and accessed by the SON Community? Your help sorely needed. 

 

All Best,

 

Brent C.

I'm certain there's external CD drives you can purchase that connect to the laptop via USB. I'd be excited to hear what you have, hopefully this works for you!

Love the photos @Paul Raven, I know some have obviously been seen here and there, but it's always nice to have them crop up! James Mitchell was fine back in the day, I tell ya!
