Viewing Single Post From: The Edge of Night Discussion
RutherfordBHayes


I was one of two fans invited to attend the final taping of Edge of Night, 25 years ago this week, Dec. 13, 1984. I was born three weeks after ATWT and Edge's CBS debuts, but, for some reasons, I did not get to start watching until early January 1964, and for the next 21 years, I was devoted to 'Edge.'
I have such vivid memories of the program.
I am happy to announce that I will be featured in the upcoming book, The Survival of the Soap Opera Genre,' that will be published early next year (2010). In conjunction with the book's publication, I have been invited to present my chapter in the book to the American Popular Culture Association Conference in St. Louis, Mo., March 30 - April 3.
I would dearly love to present a video montage to accompany my presentation, and, perhaps, one of you (younger), much more technologically saavy people could help me put together a 4 minute montage of this very unique program. Thank you very much for your attention and cooperation in this matter. Another reason why I can't do it, myself (putting together the video) is because I have been become disabled in recent years, with a host of medical problems and even more surgeries, so, a majority of my time is spent on dealing with my health issues. The good news is that I have filed a medical malpractice lawsuit this past week, so, hopefully, my own medical soap opera will soon be over.
Thank you again.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Patricia Conwell who played Tracey Dallas Micelli?
