All My Children
Susan W. asks: I have been watching AMC since it started. I have to say this because it has become so hard to hear the actors over the loud music…If I make the TV louder then the music gets louder and I have no idea what they are saying…They need to turn it down a little, a lot of watchers are having the same problem I am in hearing the actors speak.
Soaps.com: Susan, we’ve had one or two other complaints about this very same thing. Although Soaps.com doesn’t have anything to do with the show or network, we encourage you to contact AMC regarding this audio problem by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to:

Days of Our Lives
Michelle S. asks: When will Drake Hogestyn be back on “Days” on a full time basis with a daily, strong, storyline based on him? I miss him very much. If Tony and Stefano were not back in the show I would probably stop watching it. Please bring John Black back daily!
Soaps.com: We sure hope Drake will be back on the show in a more fulltime capacity soon, Michelle! Rumors are flying about the internet saying that he’s leaving the show or fired. Since the shows don’t comment on actor’s contracts, we can’t be certain what the future of him or his character is. We do know that Drake’s contract was set to be up in January 2008, however, he has renewed his contract – length unknown.
Elise H. asks: I would like to know more about Days of our Lives and how I can get pictures of them?
