Radio Jock, Connie Szerszen: “My life is a soap opera!”

Connie Szerszen, Top Rock Girly Jock and soap opera fanLegendary Chicago disk jockey, Connie Szerszen, talks to Soapdom on her love for the soaps.

Known to Chicago audiences for her antics and one-liners and labeled "Top Rock Girly Jock," and "The Polish Princess," Connie Szerszen decided to pen a book on her life.

Szerszen became acquainted with the soaps and probably has John Schneider (Dukes of Hazard) to thank. "I did an interview with John when he was in Chicago in the 80's, and I fell in love," Szerszen said. "He was so dreamy and cute. I fell head over heels. They don't come any better."

When Schneider landed the role on Loving, where he played Larry Lamont, Szerszen was hooked. "I'll tell you...I couldn't get my eyes off the screen, but beside that, that is where I discovered my love for the soaps and the ongoing storylines. I feel you learn a lot from these shows."

Her life has indeed been interesting... She hunted Elvis down in a Chicago hotel, had a date with Neil Diamond, and partied with Elton John and Stevie Nicks to name a few.

She also lost "That ABC Gig" to Oprah, and The Chicago Sun-Times made her the cover story calling her, "The Woman who Invented Strip Radio.".And she is written into the U.S. Congressional Record.

The book has over 200 photos and is packed with memorabilia, and yes! There's even a blurb about yours truly and a mention of www.Soapdom.com.

"This is something I wanted to do for a long time, write this book," Szerszen revealed. "It was a journey, but well worth it. You learn a lot when you write about yourself," Szerszen said. "Oh yes! The only difference in my life from a soap is that I never risked marriage (came close) and remained free, just in case Mr. Right should come along."

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Brendan Michael Coughlin enjoys playing Tad and being a new dad

When asked what it is like to play Tad on Days of our Lives, Brendan Michael Coughlin shouts exuberantly, "I love him!"

Coughlin has been playing the so-called behind the scenes instigator for the last two years. He has no family that is ever mentioned on the show, but he is there. He came on as Will's (Guy Wilson) best friend, but when it became clear that Will was gay, Tad did everything but bash and degrade and mock him. The irony? At the recent wedding of Will and Sonny (Freddie Smith), he was best man. Go figure!

"I know. It has been a wild ride. I did a whole turn around, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed doing the wedding. I really enjoy playing this guy. He is a total goof-off. He means well, but is always on the wrong side of the rope." Coughlin said. "I have grown to love him. He is comic relief. I always had dramatic roles, so this is fun."
