Growing up I split time in New Jersey, the Bronx, Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Harlem. On half days while going to school in Manhattan and in kindergarten, I’d go to my Aunt Beverly’s house on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and watch soap operas with her.

“Days of Our Lives,” All My Children and The Young & The Restless were just imprinted into my life as much as The NBA on NBC, The Price Is Right & Wheel Of Fortune or Jeopardy!

Soap opera theme songs are what were always cool to me! Can’t lie: “All My Children” had the dopest soap opera theme song EVER!


Listening to that theme song made my imagination run wild. It felt like strolling around Macy’s or Stern’s department store with my friends and having fun.  But I digress!

Although not a member of the cast of “All My Children,” I caught up with “Young & The Restless” soap opera star Kate Linder.

I don’t know many male guys that watch soap operas, but I’m learning as I get older many guys have that story of going to the hair dresser with their moms or their grandmothers. While appearing on Scoop B Radio, I asked Linder about the craziest place a viewer of “Young & The Restless” recognized her. “Actually, there was this doctor and he told me that he didn’t miss “Young & The Restless” and he would schedule his surgeries around the show,” Kate Linder told me on Scoop B Radio. 

You think Linder is lying, don’t you? 

“No, its true,” she said.  That was a long time ago and now that people can, you know; they can stream them, they can tape them, they can watch them at different times. So he probably doesn’t have to reschedule his surgeries anymore. But I think he still watches them.”
