When we interviewed actor Tony Craig (Draper; Edge of Night) almost a year ago, he had this to say about his time on the show:

PGP: The AOL/PGP Classic Soaps Channel is about to start showing your biggest storyline - Draper's trial for the murder of Margo, his subsequent escape, amnesia, and the relationship with Emily while poor April suffers back home.

TC: That was the ultimate storyline for me. That went on for over a year. It only ended when people wrote in and said, "We hate Emily. You can’t let him sleep with her!" And so, as a result, I ended up going back to April. And then we had the whole thing at the amusement park. It was enormous. It was the most fun I ever had.... We got to ride all the rides all night long. The one thing I remember is that I was deadly sick. I had strep throat and a bronchial infection. I was so sick that night. But they’d booked the amusement park, it was costing them an enormous amount of money, plus they’d trucked everybody out sixty miles, so I had to do it. And I got soaking wet. We shot all night and then I remember I had to be back on the set the next morning at nine o’clock.

Those amusement park episodes are up now! Click here to watch!

hey P&G ... this has been great to relive this time period of Edge, especially since I was a kid with no VCR prior to 1980! Two questions: 1) I didn't discover the EDGE episodes on AOL Video till earlier this year and was disappointed that episodes 6119 thru 6204 were not taken off before getting a chance to see them. Will these episodes become available again at some point or can you provide the link format to the streams of these episodes? 2) Also how far back do the EDGE continuous episodes go (I have read the go back to Feb. 1978).. any chance you will decide to post episodes for that era (or starting in 1977 if you have it!)? Thanks again.
