The Flashback Articles

As a lifelong fan of soaps, I try to respect the history of the genre. As a person who reads and seeks out historic articles on the genre, I post them here as often as I can, not only for the value of the individual stories but the historical context many of them provide.

In case you've missed some of these, I wanted to share some of my favorite classic articles that have been posted at We Love Soaps. There are many others you can read by clicking the "flashback" link at the top of the page.
