I've launched a new blog devoted to scanning/posting issues from my collection of SODs. The oldest issue in my collection is currently posted to launch the blog. The March 1976 issue featured Helen Gallagher & Bernard Barrow (Maeve & Johnny Ryan, Ryan's Hope) on the cover. Posted to the blog include the synopses for all 14 soaps on the air, a DAYS Family Tree, interviews with Val Dufour (John, SFT), Ron Hale (Roger, RH), Lucy Martin (Tiffany, EON), & Denise Alexander (Lesley, GH). Also posted is an "On the Set" feature with Ryan's Hope (among other things).

In addition to the entirety of the April 1976 SOD (with OLTL's Jacqueline Courtney on the cover), I've started posting selections from the May 1976 SOD (featuring DAYS' Suzanne Rogers on the cover). So far, in addition to letters & gossip, I've posted an interview with Audrey Landers (Heather Kane, Somerset), a fashion feature with Dixie Carter (Brandy Henderson, The Edge of Night), and a profile on Ruth Warrick (Phoebe Tyler, AMC). Also now posted is an "On the Set of Somerset" feature in addition to many more tidbits from the May 1976 issue. Synopses for all the soaps from this issue are still forthcoming.

In addition to the entirety of both the July & August 1976 issues of SOD (including all interviews, feature stories, pictorials, and synopses), I've finally acquired and posted the premiere issue of SOD (cover dated November 1975) featuring the cast of Love of Life on the cover.
