This is a longshot, but I'm kind of a collector of weird audio. Both the WWF and WCW experimented with broadcasting PPV's on the radio. I've been looking for tapes of ANY of these shows for YEARS. Anyone remember these? Anyone know someone with a crazy large wrestling collection that might have access to these?

Also looking for ANY golden age era pro wrestling radio broadcasts and having little luck. Not sure how much has survived. I've found LOTS of boxing from the 30's and 40's, but no wrestling.

I do not have any recordings of wrestling on radio, but remember listening to it. As such, this may give you an indication which stations aired it and may have some idea of recordings that still exist.

About 1964, KMOX Radio in St. Louis aired some main events from Kiel Auditorium with Jack Buck calling the action.

In the 1980's, WLW Radio in Cincinnati carried portions of cards from Riverfront Coliseum (now U.S. Bank Arena) with Gary Burbank and Bill Cunningham doing kayfabe calls to the action in and around the ring.
