George and James discuss a wide range of topics including the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in Wichita Falls, Texas, what makes a good ref and of course war stories from his long and storied career as the third man in the ring.

While George is out on major assignment, Glen Braget welcomes author John Cosper to the show to program to talk about his latest book, Louisville’s Greatest Show, the Story of the Allen Athletic Club. For 22 years, the Allen Athletic Club’s weekly wrestling show at the Columbia Gym was the place to be on Tuesday night. Promoters Heywood Allen and his successors Francis and Betty McDonogh overcame the Great Depression, the 1937 flood, a World War, and a “crooked” athletic commissioner to bring the best of the golden age of wrestling to Louisville. Join Glen and John as they go back in time to remember the architects of Louisville pro wrestling history.
