Rock'n' Wrestling on CBC Radio Two
Don't let it be said that public broadcasting can't be cool too. This Saturday night, CBC Radio Two's RadioSonic program turns its attention to the most storied of passions, Rock'n' Wrestling.

This will be the fifth year that RadioSonic will be doing a special on the connection between music and wrestling.

Guest will include Fozzy lead singer Moongoose McQueen who will try to convince the listening audience that he is not, in fact, Canadian Chris Jericho. Producer James Booth and host David Wisdom also chat with Southern Culture On The Skids about masked wrestling legend El Santo.

Plus during the show, they will spin a bunch of great Wrestling Records from the likes of Sweet Daddy Siki, The Rock, Antonino Rocca, and Bret Hart among others.

"We started doing this because I had a bunch of records and I thought they were cool," said Booth, who is a long-time wrestling fan. He discovered a Freddie Blassie record, which led to a Sweet Daddy Siki record, and so on. A 'Handsome' Jimmy Valiant record was a great discovery. "It's an amazing record because it sounds like he's trying to keep up with the band."

In past years, Johnny Legend was a guest. Legend was the writer and producer of Freddie Blassie's Pencil Neck Geek. Blassie's records (he did two albums, King Of Men and I Bite The Songs) have been played every year.

Other music featured over the years include Hulk Hogan, Sweet Daddy Siki, 'Exotic' Adrian Street, Curt Hennig, 'Handsome' Jimmy Valiant, 'Captain' Lou Albano, Michael 'P.S.' Hayes, 'The King' Jerry Lawler, and Jimmy Hart.

"The CBC by and large aspires to high-brow pursuits," Booth said, adding that that was why it was intriguing for them to tackle it.

RadioSonic is heard all across Canada on CBC Radio Two starting at 7:00pm until midnight local times (1 hour later Atlantic, 1.5 later Newfoundland) and the Rock & Wrestling portion will start at approximately 8:30 until 10:00pm.
