Episode 29: Unsolved Mysteries of Memphis

On this special Unsolved Mysteries of #Memphis edition of the KFR Podcast, host Scott Bowden goes face to masked mug with Mil Mascaras during an autograph signing at Los Angeles-area sports-memorabilia speakeasy.

Bowden doesn’t tiptoe gracefully around the issue, asking as many questions as humanly possible to unmask the truth behind the mystery that has had a chokehold on the longtime Memphis fan and manager since he was 8 years old: Was it REALLY  Mil Mascaras in the ring at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis on 1.29.79, doing a stretcher job for promoter Jerry Jarrett’s local legends Jerry Lawler and Jackie Fargo…or was it a ringer?

Mascaras not only answers emphatically, providing photographic evidence, but can also be heard discussing the issue with Bowden, whose ill-fitting skinny jeans  accidentally setting off the voice recorder on his Galaxy Note8 device—finally a break that cracks the case…the answer awaits, true believers!

Episode 28: Too Much

In a candid discussion with Brian Last, Scott Bowden honors the memory of the late Brian Lawler by revealing a side of Grand Master Sexay that most fans never knew.

Bowden recalls the first time he met BC back in 1989, when the son of the King drove a Lincoln Continental delivering Godfather’s Pizzas all over town while earning straight A’s at Craigmont High School. Bowden discusses Jerry Lawler’s reaction to the appearance of his oldest son and Tony Williams on an outlaw show promoted in Memphis by Eddie “Snowman” Crawford, which also saw the debut of a certain punk manager from Germantown.

The KFR host also explains why Brian was the most naturally talented wrestler he’s ever seen—and why having too much on the natch may have helped lead to BC’s downfall. Bowden acknowledges Grand Master’s demons and mourns his wasted potential, but also recalls the ability and personality that made Brian Lawler one of a kind and truly unforgettable to those who really knew him.
