    Oops I made a boo boo. I stated that I owned year 2005 of "DAYS" but I was mistaken. I just own 1995-2004.

    I think I may purchase 1984 next. I'd love to see some of the pure classic storylines.

    I hate to be the one to say this, but we really shouldn't be talking about the buying of bootlegs on this forum.

    Has Capitol ever run in syndication? I watched the first year or so...I recall really enjoying it.

    I haven't seen it shown anywhere in the US since it aired on CBS between As the World Turns and Guiding Light. My Mom watched those but only once in awhile taped them. Even SoapNet didn't want it. It probably got shown outside the US.

    I have heard that as well. However, considering all of the music that must be on that show, it would be cost prohibitive to do anything with them I'm afraid.

    The music industry has been holding shows hostage for too long. And their greed and lack of ethics is more than just a question of licensing fees making certain shows unprofitable on DVD. Now they're even going after people for performing Johann Sebastian Bach compositions on YouTube! This cannot go on.

    If storage in this case means "UCLA" then music issues might be the least of your problems.

    I stumbled across this as a recommendation since I watch Dark Shadows on Amazon Prime: Bold and the Beautiful has episodes to stream beginning with episode 7000 (sometime in 2015).

    Do '84 and '85 come with CPT's 80s Coke Lady of the time (80s Torch Lady w/Coca-Cola byline and Suzanne Ciani jingle)?

    I haven’t received them in the mail yet. My guy is still working on getting them all on discs.

    I’ll check when I get them but I would assume they do since they are basically VHS rips; the quality isn’t wonderful but it beats nothing at all.

    Just received my DVDs. I checked them and they do include the closings like you described.

    Its too bad That ABC doesn't have the first years of One life to Live. Its also too bad TOLN and Prospect Park didnt work out after ABC made the Decision to Cancel. That said, I would think it would be hard to release Soap operas due to the # of Episodes and the effort it would take to get Clearances for all episodes. Didn't; they film 200-300 Episodes a year ?

    On average, as of recent, “DAYS” is only off about 5-7 days a year. Of course, no Saturdays or Sundays.

    Mel Brandt, who also did the "in living color" announcement back in the day, was the announcer on The Doctors for many years.



    Bill Wolff announced Another World too, he was based in Brooklyn(where AW taped, back then).

    And here's a closing from Another World from 1985, with that classic ending announcement of his, "Join us each weekday at this time for the continuing story of Another World."



    And here's the AW title from that closing w/Procter and Gamble copyright from 1985 (captured from that clip from user bmuz):

    anotherworld1985copyright.

    In the early years, AW never had copyright(note: it'a a kinesocpe)

    In general though, a Full DVD release wouldn't be practical right? I mean in the case of One life to Live there were 45 Seasons and Over 11,000 Episodes. who would have time to watch all that? :laugh:
