          Tonymfan ,
                           You know I've P M you several times to reveal yourself to me and told you I would keep your identity secret , but you never would release your identity to me !  I do know for sure now , it took a little Columbo detective deduction where I put 2 and 2 together and my dilemma is positively solved !  I will indeed keep your identity to myself as I said before ! I was surprised that a person of your stature remained hidden for all this time . One thing for sure as everybody told me that you were Janine !  Wrong !

           I will not answer any P M 's to devulge my detective work !

           So dont bother !  I' m a man of my word .

RTP - Got to give you credit, you sure know how to headline a new thread. LOL What a "teaser" thread headline ! LOL I would venture that your subject title "I know who you are,Tonymfan", posted by you, RTP, known well, to all BTW and *** members, will create more "guest" hits on BTW today than any other subject has generated in a long, long time. I say "guest" hits because many of us at BTW have long concluded that Tonymfan is, indeed, the only begotten son of Tony Morgan, himself. If he isn't, he should be, that boy could make a Dad proud.

RTP:

I will date myself.

You are known as the "Shadow."

This was a mystery on the radio in the 30s and 40s.

I am not that old.

Niatross - you're just not kidding, our old radio then was a big as an oil stove and had one of those great big round lighted yellow-faced dials. The first TV I remember was, of course, an all-tube TV, about the size of a desk, without legs, with about an 8" or 10" screen, we thought we were in paradise. We'd sit there and watch thru the constant "snow" (we were about 140 miles from any major city) great shows like Howdy Doody, Frontier Playhouse, Jack Benny, Red Skelton, Milton Berle and, of course, on the weekends, the Friday night fights (either sponsored by Gillette or Pabst), wrestling, and, of all things, roller-derby. But alas, you never knew how long the TV would operate, seemed like you had to buy a new tube every week. (remember taking those tubes down to the corner drugstore to use the "tube tester"?- boy, that was a lot of fun, had to make sure you didn't bend or break one of those damn tiny tube prongs). I still love those old shows, to this day, but thank goodness for the modern innovative technology in TVs.

MWG:

My Father was the master tube tester.

Every week a tube would go out.

Down to the local TV repairman.  Check those "tubes."

God forbid if it was the "Big" picture tube.  I think the cost of that guy was around $ 100.
My Mother would have a stroke.

The Friday night fights. It came on at 9:00 PM. No one touched the channel or we would have the Friday night fights in our house.  My Dad loved the Friday night fights.

Thanks for stimulating my thought process and bringing up (stirring) those memories.

My elderly, petite, Christian, sweet grandmother, back in the 50's, would come into town (lived out in the countryside) on either Friday or Saturday nights, can't remember which, just to watch wrestling. This was a woman who never swore or said anything bad about anyone; however, when wrestling came on, she changed into someone or something else you didn't recognize. She hated the "bad guys", like "Skull" Murphy, and I can hear her now when the "good guy" would have someone like Skull Murphy in something like a choke-hold and she would say "kill that son of a b----" and I, maybe 8-9 years old, would ask "grandma, what did you say ?" and she, with her eyes ablaze, would say "kill that son of a b----". Only time she ever swore and until her dying days, she still remained steadfast that wrestling was real.

Since Phils thread has been hijacked into wrestling  Grin  here's some more names from the 50's and 60's.....GorillaMonsoon...Haystack Calhoon....Ray Stevens and Pat Patterson. 

My brothers and I used to watch that crap on Channel 2 out of Oakland, California, on weekends. Then have our own wrestling match in the livingroom, and knock our Dad out of his easy chair and bounce off the walls. He hated that, but played along. If we caught him on a day he was hungover, it got ugly! Then came the phony interviews after the "match", which were half the show.  Hilarious.   

And while on the subject, dont forget the Chicago Westerners vs. the Bay Area Bombers in womens roller-derby right after pro-wrestling!! So stay tuned..... BSmeter

Back in the mid 80's, I was wholesaling cars, and stopped by a friends lot in Sherman Oaks, in the San Fernando Valley area of southern California, when a big gray haired guy pulled up and wanted to sell my friends his car. He too was a car dealer, and I had seen him at some of the auctions in L.A before, though we never talked. The guy always looked dissheveled, his trademarks were  gray hair that was too long for someone his age, and gray fungus growing on the back of his arms, and elbows from sitting at the desk too much.  

He was in his late 60's, about 6' 3" and 280#. He and my friend were in the office talking cars, you could just tell this guy was as sharp as they come. New York born Jew, and raised in the street these two argued back & forth......I remember something like this conversation on the office steps

This car is F-in NICE!! Look at it!!
Yeah, but I cant sell em when they have over 90 grand on the speedo
Well Spin the c-sucker back to 50 and sell it then
F-U, I aint goin to jail...YOU spin it...and Ill pay more...
Ahh, Ill just sell it to Morton in Texas....
***  
LOL


After an exchange like that, Im laughing but ready to leave. The guy sticks his hand (more like meat-hook) out and introduces himself. He also has a kink in his neck and keeps making jerky motions ALA Rodney Dangerfield. We talked the car business, and when I told him I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, he hits another gear!

Oh, so what years were you up there?
late 50's to  1978.
Ya ever watch the show "Championship Wrestling" with announcer Walt Harris?
Sure did
Well youre looking at the guy who got the first TV contract for those guys....
those wrestlers were stumblebums from New York, and Philadelphia most of em....I got em
gigs, we went to high school with 'em and my brother and I promoted em, then got them on TV,
a little airtime, they started making money, and it was great.  I moved to Vegas, bought
a home there, and had another one in Walnut Creek, when I was in the Bay Area....[i/]

So you're a millionaire thanks to the W.W.F.?

The letters "WWF" made him angry. He spits on the asphalt car lot.

They approached us and offered us 100 grand to sell the promotional rights to them in
196? ...we laughed.....and they came right back and said ok, well give you 250K, you
and your brother each can have 125 CASH, and if you dont take this deal, we are gonna
just spend the money advertising our own wrestlers.....and your wrestlers may jump ship.

250 grand back then would be like about 4 million in 2007 dollars.

So we took it.  We were only netting about a grand a month at that time.., and didnt have any idea that this phony wrestling could actually take off like it did !!  Worst move I ever made, but then again, we weren't half the promoters that those guys were.  So I guess its all good...we had our 3 year run

He opened the trunk and threw his briefcase in there, then turned and asked me........

Can you do anything with a nice car that has 90 grand on the clock?

Nope, sorry.


True story.
