America's Wrestling Radio Show (TDR) returns to our home based Brute Adidas studios at KXNO for this loaded program. Steve Foster and possibly Jeff Murphy will man the guns as I will be covering a network event in South Florida. I know, rough duty considering the weather here. I promise to come back for a series of shows that will include a special video broadcast of a visit to Sean Bormet's Overtime School of Wrestling, the Midlands and the NWCA National Duals.


Joining Steve, Jeff, Randy and crew will be-
