It was lovely to take the chance to meet Richard Dean Anderson, Erin Cahill, Robert Rusler, Tim Russ at LFACC July 2015. All four were great fun to meet, and it was a brilliant experience.
General Hospital (GH) is an amazing show. My wife has been watching it for 40 years (since 1975), and when she moved to the UK in 2000, it was the main aspect of her life she did not want to miss out on. Enter a challenge for me as it does not broadcast in the UK. I have kept the challenge alive, and by hook or by crook, have made sure she never misses an episode. In the process I have become a huge fan myself.
Like EastEnders in the UK, it is dismissed by far too many as fluff with poor acting, but these are tv snobs who have never taken the time to appreciate the hard work, and qualiy acting/writing that makes shows like GH so popular. It has been on the air since April 1963, so with over 50 years of entertainment it must do something right!
You may notice a number of items for Tamara Braun. I was a member of her fan club during a large part of her time on GH, and received greeting cards and letters. It took me six attempts to get a reply from Stuart Damon, but it was worth it, and as well as GH, also completed my primary trio of autographs for The Champions which is rare to have.
Collecting GH autographs from the UK is obviously more expensive than collecting in the UK. Akthough we have done quite well over the years, there are many cast members who did not reply to us which is sad. Despite that, we are thrilled with those that have replied, and treasure this ever growing collection that celebrates America's greatest daytime show.
