I heard this on the radio today.
On this date in 1966, the series Dark Shadows began on television.
I remember watching this program. I remember the voice of Victoria Winters, and Barnabas Collins. I especially remember Maggie Evans, who was the image of Josette. Barnabas, who was a vampire, was determined to live forever with the love of his life, Josette.
Then there was the witch who turned Barnabas into a vampire. The lovely Angeligue. I apologize if I spelled that wrong. She was played by Lara Parker.
Dark Shadows was only on the air for about 5 years.
I was home raising my children when this was first on. It was definitely not your average Soap Opera.
