News & Gossip from the mid-1980s per The Soaps of Yesterday


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. My apologies for the radio silence. I am finishing my last week of University after four years and it has been hectic and insane (along with yet another lockdown here in Melbourne) I will done for good this Friday and will be updating the blog again from Fri. So sorry to those who have been waiting around but everything just got a little crazy.

Congratulations

 

Maybe one day we'll learn the secret of how a university student from Melbourne came into a collection of mid-western US newspaper soap opera summaries from 37 years ago.  I hope it includes time travel, an evil twin, and a fascination with old video store advertisements.

Haha, I can give you that secret right now, I am a bit sorry it isn't as exciting as time travel and evil twins. Newspapers.com. Best resource ever. I recommend it, but it costs obviously.

 

Also because JMR and Lynda Hirsch were syndicated, everything is all over the place, getting everything in the right order and making sure you have the correct columns and synopsis for a particular week isn't easy, Takes a lot of time and effort, but so worth it.

The new articles are up and there's a lot of sad news about the death of Charita Bauer.

 

But, there's also disco.  Peter Strong (aka Bob Georgia) loves to boogie and

 

Speaking of disco and nightclub owners, an interesting tidbit about the loss of Kim Ulrich on ATWT

 

I'm always amused at what they get wrong.  Here, poor James Horan gets his name misprinted three time in the same article

 

Then, there's this bold prediction about Dynasty

 

And finally nobody seems to know who Laken's father is

I found that story about Chris Robinson being sentenced for tax fraud and wanting to continue on GH during the day and being incarcerated overnight fascinating. I wonder what ended up happening with that.

In the synopsis Ginny's trial for the murder of DL Brock was dropped because the DA took note of Bobbi saying about how violent DL had been.  Looking back, there was a lot of build up to Ginny's trial only for her to be set free rather quickly (they hired James Horan and it was one of Jake/Sam Behrens first stories), so I would guess it was planned to be a longer trial.  I believe Ginny and Rick leave Port Charles as soon as the trial is over, so I don't think Chris Robinson got his wish.

Jake Meyer had already been around since 1983. Jake was introduced during the Susan Moore murder mystery. As Heather's lawyer. Jake also had an interfaith romance with Rose. Before marrying Bobbie.  Ginny and Rick were around until late 1986. Staying over a year an half. After the DL's murder.

I forgot that Ginny got pregnant with Rick Jr after the trial, but then again so did GH...
