    The Legendary Les Thatcher comes to Pipebomb Radio

    in Wrestling

    Les Thatcher became a professional wrestling fan the first time he watched the action on a friend’s television in 1949 at the tender age of eight years old. The beginning of his life in pro wrestling began at what may have been the first Pro Wrestling School in America. Les read about Tony Santos, a promoter in New England, and his wrestling school based in Boston, Massachusetts in a 1959 issue of Wrestling Revue, then the top magazine in the industry, and after writing back and forth he climbed on a Greyhound Bus in February 1960 and traveled to Boston to begin what has been a 44 year love affair with professional wrestling. As a wrestler his career spanned 20 years from July 4 1960 when he stepped into the ring as a pro for the first time against “Cowboy” Ronnie Hill in Blue Hills, Maine.  As a broadcaster, Les shared the microphone over the years with hall of famers such as Gordon Solie, Bob Caudle, Lance Russell, and Jim Ross. The very first ever four color WWWF magazine was designed and edited by Thatcher for Vince McMahon Jr. in 1978.As a trainer/teacher for the last ten years Les opened Les Thatcher’s Main Event Pro Wrestling Camp in Cincinnati in 1995 and an “off shoot” of that is the Heartland Wrestling Association which during that period was considered one of the top independent promotions in the country.  From 1998 through 2001 HWA promoted the famous “Brian Pillman Memorial Shows” bringing WWF, WCW, and ECW together under the same roof on the same night for the first time in wrestling history.

    Indie Books Show #53 (Thatcher C. Nalley)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 
    Author Thatcher C. Nalley joins me on the Indie Books Show this week to talk about Letters from the Looney Bin and her other books.
    In the late 1970s the Emerson Rose Asylum became completely abandoned - all the patients, doctors, staff vanished and were never seen again. The events circling this mass exodus have been one of the most baffling disappearances in history...until now. For hidden deep inside a tattered asylum mattress a stack of bundled letters were found. These letters, all addressed to the pseudonym Dr. Quill, and all written by the patients as they document the final days of the Emerson Rose Asylum.
    Tune in Friday at 11AM EST or listen to the archive.
    For more information about Thatcher C. Nalley and her books:

    Friday Farcast: The Thatcher Legacy

    in History

    Today, I'll be playing my interview with Liverpool's Darren Williams.  Darren has spent hours looking at the life and times of "The Iron Lady" and what he came away with is a fasicnating revelation of a MI6 version of "My Fair Lady."  
    Like most political figures, Thatcher was placed in her role as England's first, female PM.
    We also look at the notion of sacred cows and can the dead be criticized or even judged, especially in light of Thatchers passing.
    In the first hour, I'll be joined by patrick, whose insights into the metal and paper markets is cutting edge.  We'll discuss the recent drama of gold, silver and Bitcoin.
    Please join us.

    Margaret Thatcher the Paper Lady

    in Politics

    US President Barack Obama said of Margaret Thatcher  "America has lost a true friend", while German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would "never forget her part in surmounting the division of Europe and at the end of the Cold War".
    Parte de la leyenda de la ex primera ministra del Reino Unido, Margaret Thatcher, se forjó en la reforma neoliberal que acometió en la economía de su país. Privatizar y recortar gasto público desmantelando el Estado del Bienestar fueron sus principales recetas. Bajo su mandato pasaron a manos privadas el negocio del ferrocarril, el de las aeronauticas y el de las telecomunicaciones. Los empresarios la veneraban. Ejecutada en coordinación con Ronald Reagan, en Estados Unidos, su "revolución" es aún hoy objeto de debate.
