Georgia Wrestling History sent this in:
The GWH Radio Network had a strong week, featuring two wrestling legends, a modern day referee, a few regional wrestling stars, a tribute to an Internet radio favorite, and even a former Atlanta Falcon.
On Monday, the Sports Buffet, hosted by ?Chef? Tim Dix and Rich Tate, welcomed 1980’s NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Buddy Curry. The former two-time All Pro Atlanta Falcon linebacker, who played until injuries ended his career during the 1987 season, joined the show to talk about the magical 12-4 season of 1980, the strike season of 1982, and the lack of success following the firing of head coach Leeman Bennett. Curry also talked about his current organization, Kids and Pros, which works to teach fundamentals of football to children. Other topics discussed included the release of Atlanta Braves legend Tom Glavine, and the debut of the club’s hot prospect Tommy Hanson. Click here for the archive.
Tuesday’s edition of Shot in the Dark, with hosts Jimmy Rave and Sal Rinauro, featured Ring of Honor referee Todd Sinclair and cameo appearances by Murder One and Nemesis. All three shared road stories, while Nemesis made an on-air apology for past issues with Rinauro. M-1’s segment also included some discussion on his time with Jim Cornette and Smoky Mountain Wrestling. Click here for the archive.
Tate and Les Thatcher used this week’s Peach State Pandemonium as a tribute of sorts, in honor of Thatcher’s former partner on the highly popular Internet radio program Wrestling Weekly. Young fell ill early in 2008, leading to a hiatus of the program, but ultimately made the decision to cancel the show for health reasons. Young sat in with the crew for the majority of the show, and he and Thatcher reminisced of their time working together. Wrestle View‘s Adam Martin also joined the show to pay tribute to Young.

The NoseBleed Section on Thursday, hosted by John Cannon and Joe Cowart, featured appearances by Dennis Condrey and Baby Doll, as well as Fanny Pack Mullet Guy, called in for the second straight week, and Hans Baumgartner, who chimed in with a very strange question for Cowart.

Tate and Mike Sempervive spent the majority of Friday’s Ringside Rap discussing recent personnel issues with World Wrestling Entertainment, as well as providing a recap of the Extreme Rules PPV. They also talked about Total Nonstop Action, ROH, and much more. Click here for the archive.
