Podcast with me as a guest

Here are a few Podcast that I was a guest on from the last few weeks. Hope you enjoy them.

Scott Bowden's KFR Podcast Vol. 2, Ep. 4: Kings of the Road (with Beau James)
Armed with his trusty King Lawler BabyFace™ Antiviral Mask, Scott Bowden hits the road to Kingsport, Tenn., for a Humongous discussion with area King Beau James. Bowden and James discuss the origins of the Road Warrior Humongous gimmick in Memphis, originating in the mind of Jerry Lawler as Hawk and Animal’s post-apocalyptic pal as the unofficial third member of the treacherous trio, gimmicks based on the “Mad Max” films. Bowden reveals his thoughts on the gimmick as a young fan as well as his interactions years later with the man originally under the hockey mask: his high-school football coach, Mike “the Mule” Stark, a former Memphis State gridiron great and late ’70s-era Memphis grappler. Bowden and James share their knowledge of how the gimmick made its way—sans Stark—to Continental and Ron Fuller’s Stud Stable and how the role was recast. Bowden and James also reminisce about the rib they pulled in Memphis on a USWA hopeful that left one would-be grappler stark naked—and still seething about it years later. All this and more on a Humongous, pandemic-pleasing episode of the KFR Podcast, Vol. 2. Special thanks to Great Scott’s Art Studio for the extra-crispy KFR Bucket in all its glory.

This is Scott's last podcast as he unexpectedly passed away last week.

Mark Coale's Winter Place Pod Cast
First off, condolences to the friends and family of Scott Bowden, who died earlier this week.  We had been talking to Scott the last couple weeks about returning to the podcast to talk Memphis wrestling and even were Tweeting with him a few days ago.

     On the show we are finally to nabbed The King of Kingsport Beau James (@kingofkingsport) to be on the show.  We start by remembering Scott, as Beau had just done his Kentucky Fried Rasslin’ podcast not that long ago.  As one of the foremost experts on East Tennessee wrestling, we pick Beau’s brain on all things about the Knoxville/Southeastern/Continental/USA territory, so plenty of stories about Ron and Don Wright, Whitey Caldwell, Les Thatcher, Ron and Robert Fuller,, Jimmy Golden, Ron Garvin and many more folks.  We also talk about Memphis, including the angle (see below) when Robert Fuller brought back Nick Gulas to do an angle about the control of the promotion.  There’s way too many stories to listen here, including Beau’s long friendships with Buddy Landell and Jimmy Valiant, starting in the business at 16 years old, indy wrestling horror stories and so much more. Easily one of my favorites podcasts, as Beau is a master storyteller.
