Modify record in xml from code behind on page load and unload events

When my web page opens, I want it to modify a value in an xml file based on what's in its Page.Title, and when the page unloads, modify that value to "Not Broadcasting". I'm having a real hard time figuring this one out--I am going about this all wrong!  Is there an Expert here that can help?
--------###CODE BEHIND###--------

Dim hashTableData As New Hashtable

Dim strWebcastName As String
 

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then

            'Reading xml file

            Dim doc As System.Xml.XmlDocument = New System.Xml.XmlDocument()

            doc.Load(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/WebcastDemos.xml"))

            Dim list As System.Xml.XmlNodeList = doc.SelectNodes("Records/Record")

            For Each node As System.Xml.XmlNode In list

                hashTableData(node.Item("ID").FirstChild.Value) = node.Item("Data").FirstChild.Value

            Next

            ViewState("Records") = hashTableData

        End If
 

        ' we do this to avoid multiple cast

        Dim myTable As Hashtable = CType(ViewState("Records"), Hashtable)

    End Sub
 

    Protected Sub Page_LoadComplete(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.LoadComplete

        strWebcastName = Page.Title

        Me.ModifyRecord()

    End Sub
 

    Protected Sub Page_Unload(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Unload

        strWebcastName = "Not Broadcasting"

        Me.ModifyRecord()

    End Sub
 

    Private Sub ModifyRecord()

        Dim key As String = ViewState("HashKey")
 

        CType(ViewState("Records"), Hashtable)(key) = strWebcastName
 

        Dim doc As System.Xml.XmlDocument = New System.Xml.XmlDocument()

        doc.Load(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/WebcastDemos.xml"))
 

        Dim myNode As System.Xml.XmlNode = doc.SelectSingleNode("Records/Record[ID='" & key & "']")

        myNode("Data").InnerText = strWebcastName
 

        doc.Save(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/WebcastDemos.xml"))

    End Sub

I haven't. And I think the ViewState("HashKey") is completely unnecessary in this scenario, No? I mean, all I want to do is write to and modify a certain field in a certain record of the xml file, when opening the page, and then again when closing the page. So I shouldn't even need a ViewState, right? Just need a way to modify the value directly. Can you help?
