i disagree. Susan Flannery left on her own and the recasts never had any traction. Suzanne Rogers had big stories through the late 80's with John Clarke.

Anyone wo said Days didn't listen to the fans in the 80's doesn't really know the show from that era.
When they stopped listening to the fans was in the early 90's starting with the Kayla/Shane pairing.
One example: the writer had every intention of pairing Marlena and Chris but the fans wanted Marlena and John.
Days shoved off nearly ALL the vets in the 80's, much like it hear. I doubt they listened to the old fans then, either, and also there wasn't the internet. Back then, RoJohn, Roman, Bo, Hope, Steve, Kayla, Shane, Kim, the Bradys...THEY were the newbies. The difference with them I think was that there was better writing.
Do you mean the Valentine's massacre??
it was only some vets and that writer was quickly fired.
More than just the Valentine's Day Massacre. Doug, Julie, etc etc. and the 80's were when the Hortons pretty much were destroyed.
There were plenty of young ortons throughtout the 80's in major stories.
