For week 2, Host Sean Dulaney takes us into the first part of 1927. Wrestling is legal again in Evansville and has moved into the city’s showplace venue: The Soldiers and Sailors Coliseum. But the seeds of a promotional war are taking root. Historial and author Mark Hewitt joins Sean to look at the men who took to the ring (and, for one night, the stage) at the Coliseum.

Music Includes: Yah De Dah – Frisco Jazz Band, Pucker Up and Whistle and Blues My Naught Sweetie Gives To Me by Harry Raderman’s Jazz Orchestra
