1965-1966 Season


The main storyline during the series' run was a murder. The body of a murdered girl washed up on shore during the first episode. Other storylines included the goings on at a local radio station, run by Jeff Morgan (Keith Andes), who was married to Mary Morgan (Marion Ross). Their daughter, Kitty, was played by Heather North, and the story of a local band run by the teens. Paradise Bay used contemporary music, and was one of the first soap operas to do so.

Marion Ross (Mary Morgan) would later become best known for her long-running role of Marion Cunningham on the long-running situation comedy, Happy Days.
