Back to the past Sunday, May 4, 2008 11:44 PM| By Scotty Gore( - A look at Viki before Erika.Hello everyone. My sincere apologizes for this column being a few days late, but I am about to enter the final days of my student teaching semester. With graduation fast approaching next Saturday, things have gotten rather hectic around the house, seriously limiting the amount of free time I have available to write this column. So, because of homework and tests, here an article from the June 1971 edition of After Noon TV, entitled "The Good Witch of the North Riding Side Saddle on a Washing Machine." It was written by Robert Narrows, and talks about Joanne Dorian who became the second actress to portray Viki on "One Life to Live" between Gillian Spencer and Erika Slezak. Hope you enjoy.......Return with us...
