    1. Completely awesome Carolina! Dark Shadows will live for eternity. Also continuing to watch it over & over again. ??

  1. When I was 14, I had the opportunity to meet everyone on Dark Shadows and helped Jonathan Frid answer his fan mail. Can’t believe my parents allowed me to travel to Manhattan from Queens to be part of Dark Shadows on a weekly basis. The music lives on!

  2. Love Dark Shadows and presently watching all episodes. So glad we got to meet Jonathan Frid in person and had a chance to talk to him as well when he came to a local college to recite poetry.
