Futile expeditions to the edges of good taste, bad morals, and ugly intententions. Late night drives somewhere between Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and The White Castle of Fear.
Second Hand Pop, MIDI grunge soundalikes, and uncanny Japanese karaoke.

Hi Darren and peepo!
  6:04pm P-90:

Yo Darren!
  6:04pm Jan:

I went out with a guy who wrestled in high school and maybe college--I remember him telling me about a skin condition he caught on the mat
  6:04pm BH:

Question for Chris Gethard: which old school pro wrestler had the best video conferencing setup?

some of the After DSOTR S2 episodes included people who were surprisingly available to talk over video from their homes.
  6:06pm Jett:

A big old school pro wrestling fan, Ric Flair and Four Horsemen 4 life!

Hi fellas. The Capitol Theatre in Passaic used to hold WWF matches. I saw Ivan Putski wrestle there, among other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Isn't it something that just about every TV series has a wrestling episode? I can think of The Munsters and Futurama just off the top of my head.
  6:13pm BH:

is it probably still too soon for a modern day truck driver to become the head of Janela Personal Security?
  6:15pm annette:

I suck at arm wrestling. that's all yer gonna get from me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Smilty69:

Hello, Jabronis! Don't know what a "jabroni" is? Now you can look it up in the dictionary! Thanks Iron Sheik!
  6:17pm BH:

Brock doing a SSP and messing it up was a pretty big reality check for anybody who had dreams of The Giant ever doing a moonsault on TV.

Also, Lesnar not having a neck probably helped him after he botched the SSP
  6:17pm Jett:

I preferred the Steiner Recliner by Scott Steiner. My favorite finisher was the figure four leglock.
  6:17pm annette:

wonder when I view a clip of high school wrestlers on the local news...does ones concentration wane if the opponent farts
  6:18pm Jett:

Brock Lesnar is also a big favorite.
  6:18pm Jett:

Arriba, Chico Santana

  6:22pm Jett:

Do you remember IWA in New Jersey with Mil Mascaras and Dick The Bulldog Brower, and some other great stars?
Avatar 🎸 6:23pm watermark:

When I was 10 in 1986 I saw Abdullah the Butcher wrestle at an Illinois county fair. Lots of blood and head-bashings from giant metal oil drum-sized trash cans. The best.
  6:25pm Jett:

Does Abdullah The Butcher still operate a restaurant?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Oh yeah, there was a South Park episode as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm listener 126464:

Chris released a collection of Jersey-centric comedy/satire last year.'Taylor Ham, Eggs, and Cheese'. Recorded at Asbury Park Brewery. Too funny.
  6:30pm BH:

Whitman went on to defend her Honorary WWF title in the November 1997 general election

  6:34pm BH:

I'm sure Captain Lou has a FOP card in his wallet just in cast anybody pulls him over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm listener 126464:

Uncle Floyd
  6:36pm Jett:

Baron Michel Scicluna used to drive a truck delivering the New York Times.
  6:37pm Jett:

Uncle Floyd was great! I listen to his radio show on Sunday mornings on a rival station.
  6:38pm annette:

la la la la la la la la captain lou captain lou albano
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Pauly from Clifton:

@Jett, whoa...Baron Michel Scicluna..."From the isle of Malta..." I remember the announcement to this day...
  6:39pm BH:

it's possible that the WWF really overestimated how long the Gulf War would last because they kept that feud going for 5 months after the war ended
  6:39pm Jett:

...from the isle of Malta!!!!
Avatar 6:39pm deborah:

@Jett. Listen to Uncle Floyd, at times. No way that station can rival WFMU. It went to hell with its Retro Radio format and threw some of the best hosts off the air.
  6:41pm Jett:

@deborah I agree with you on that station 100 per cent. I still listen to Uncle Floyd and Ghosty though.
  6:43pm Jett:

@deborah I loved a lot of the deejays that were thrown off, like Christine Vitale, Richard Sibello, and many others.
  6:45pm BH:

"okay, get all of the kids out of the ballpit, the wrestlers wanna fight in there"
Avatar 6:45pm deborah:

Yes! AMazed that Ron Olesko and Traditions can still hold on. He is the only one left, I think.
  6:46pm Jett:

True, @deborah Lucky for him he is on the weekends or else he'd be gone also.
  6:47pm Jett:

I'm under the impression you have good musical taste @deborah.
Avatar 6:49pm deborah:

Thank you, Jett.
Avatar 6:50pm deborah:

@ Jett Think Olesko, like John Platt on WFUV, could get a show on other stations. He hosts the Folk Music Notebook, a Facebook page.
  6:50pm Jett:

I liked listening to Lise Avery on that station also. Do you remember her show? @deborah
  6:53pm Jett:

How about the Grand Wizard of pro wrestling!!!
  6:53pm Evan:

Just want to jump in and say what’s up Gethard!!! You da man!! Beautiful anonymous is so moving. Love ya dude stay healthy
Avatar 6:54pm deborah:

Yes. She reminds me of Delphine Blue who is one of the best on WFUV which has also undergone major format changes. If you like Lise Avery, try Paul Cavalconte on WNYC and WFUV. I might get thrown off for talking about other stations.

This is a cheap imitation of Cap’n Lou
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm James in ATL:

This has been fun! Looking forward to more episodes. Fan of AEW and Joey!
Avatar 6:56pm deborah:

The Wrestling Club might be the Fall replacement for Shut Up Weirdo. Just guessing.
  6:56pm annette:

yeah. cpt lou passed 2009.
  6:57pm annette:

still searching for my answer to the fart situation. serious.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, so, the KKK is not a political org, that's a HATE org.
  7:00pm Annette:

quit being so businesslike and interact with the comments board. got a fart stuck sideways or whut
  7:00pm Jett:

I've listened to Cavolcante, he's interesting. When I do my radio show on another station people compare me to many other great deejays from these stations, I play all genres @deborah
Avatar 7:01pm deborah:

What is your station? I am a long time ago WFMU radio alum.
