"To reduce accidents on the slopes by relaunching their mountain safety guide in a new digital format. Has more. For the past several years, California ski resorts have been helping skiers get up to speed on the do's and don'ts of slope safety with the mountain safety guide, which until now has been handed out in paper form. We said, hey, it's 2022 going on 2023. Let's go all digital with it. Michael reitzel, president of the California ski industry association. What to expect now? We will have some posters, things like that at resorts where people can go just take a picture of the QR code and get the guide on their phone. And once they've got it, skiers will be connected to an interactive website, loaded with safety tips, and multimedia explainers. Last year, 57 people died in ski areas throughout the country, a number rights all is hoping the new website could help cut down. We want to make education easy. Because guest education is by far the most important way to avoid incidents on the mountain.

Sam Bankman-Fried, Now the Greatest Fraudster in American History

"Victor Davis Hanson, one of the most important writers of our time, an important piece in the great American greatness on the great American greatness website. About bankman Sam bankman fried. I never heard of until the Ponzi style scheme of what is it $32 billion how much? I think it's 36, but 36 billion. So is this like the biggest ripoff monetarily speaking in American history? Bankman freed is merely one in a long line of Bay Area social justice hypocrites and frauds. They share in common loud but cynical left wing politics.

Roger Schulman: It's Too Late to Evacuate

"I was talking, we were asking, I was asking you about evacuation, I know governor desantis said it's essentially too late now to evacuate. Why is that? Is it just because of the rapidly deteriorating conditions? That's exactly it. If somebody gets stuck, there's no way to safely rescue them. The flooding can be bad. They've shut down the skyway bridge, which is the main bridge between the Tampa Bay Area and Sarasota manatee, which means people can't get over that. The winds are much higher now and around noon we're expecting this thing to actually hit with the very high winds. So if somebody gets out there, gets stuck, they're going to be in the middle of it, so better to stay where they are as dangerous as it is to be outside in the elements themselves.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Warns of Flooding, Encourages Evacuation

"Governor desantis at a press conference today cut one go There will be catastrophic flooding and life threatening storm surge And so if you're on Florida's Gulf Coast from Naples all the way through the Tampa Bay Area and some of the counties north of that that could be something that happens If you're under an evacuation order is evacuate to higher ground that is going to be safe from the type of surge and flooding And now it appears it's going to hit a little more south and a little bit more east Cut two go And our recommendation is to heed those evacuation orders What those evacuation orders are doing is identifying people that live in areas that are vulnerable to major storm surge And that storm surge can be life threatening There's certain things we can protect against in terms of the wind and the structures and we've got great building codes But when you have 5 to ten feet of storm surge that is not something that you want to be a part of And mother nature is a very fearsome adversary So please heed those warnings You do not need to evacuate to another state You don't need to go hundreds of miles away Their shelters that are open and all of these counties at this point the important part of if you're under an evacuation order is evacuate to higher ground that is going to be safe from the type of surge and flooding that we're fearing with this storm

We are not going to have a bright sunny day tomorrow. This is not going to be a pleasant experience for us, no matter where that hits within 50 miles down there. It is definitely about 70 miles south of the immediate Tampa Bay Area, but hurricanes are wide events. It's not like a pencil thin tornado. This is a very wide area of very disturbed, high intensity weather. So we are not out of the Woods yet in the immediate Tampa Bay Area. And those evacuations are still in effect, the airports are still closing, schools are still closing. It is a modification. It is a glimmer of hope for us, but it is certainly not happy days again.

Roger Schulman: Updates to the Projected Path of Hurricane Ian

"Roger. I know that the national hurricane center just released its latest expectations, bring us up to date on what they're predicting in terms of landfall. Well, they've turned the hurricane a little bit away from the immediate Tampa Bay Area to Venice, Florida, which is south of Sarasota, sort of between Sarasota and Fort Myers. It's a town of about 23,000 known for its shark teeth, which are frequently found on its beach and its lovely architecture. Like Venice, and it's just a beautiful little city. And that's where they think it's going to be hit by 125 mph winds, at least a category three storm in about 35 hours. So that is ground zero now. However, we are not out of the Woods in the Tampa Bay Area. This could change and we are still going to feel the effects much of Florida is going to feel the effects of this no matter where it hits. But this Venice is the dominion. This is somewhat, you know, I'm guardedly optimistic because this is a little bit of better news, obviously than a direct hit for Tampa and saint Pete. Now again, as I keep getting reminded from people by people who've lived through these hurricanes in Florida, things could change, but this is a little bit of good news for Tampa Bay in saint Pete, right? This is modified good news. It is not bad news, but it is not great news because we are still north of this and it is going to be moving through the state to the north and to the east. If it stays on its current path. So we are not out of the Woods by any stretch of the imagination.

He's been a pro football player in a role model. Somebody who's talked about the challenges that he faced in his own life and how he found the courage to ask for help. I think he's an inspiring figure in your right. He's getting better as a candidate and his opponent is a left winter.

They're not going to be a lot of people who vote for Brian Kemp and then vote for Rafael warning. Now,

Circle of Hope Provides Great Alternatives to Abortion

"I am so grateful to God every day that more lives are being saved. I was listening driving in. To a wonderful organization in here in the Tampa Bay Area. I think it's called circle of hope. There all about presenting women with an alternative to abortion, they're all about taking the baby after the baby is born if the woman is going through a tough chapter in her life, they care for the baby until the mother is back on her feet and able to care for the baby and then they lovingly return the baby. To the mom, to the mother. And if the mother doesn't want the baby, which is sadly a reality, they are going to proceed with adoption. Methods at a very affordable rate. You know, for a lot of people, adoption is a nonstarter because they can't afford it. So that's all good. We've got some good things happening. That are coming down the pike. I just and again, I'm not putting politics ahead of these of this lifesaving decision by the Supreme Court. But politically, this really could give Democrats a lot of momentum.

Which, oh, by the way, chuck Todd said this is not just a press release. Oh my God. I know, 'cause Biden can't do anything right. You know what? I've been critical of the response of the administration. The executive order is a good thing. That has some puzzles. Thank you. That's what I mean on me. It offers people like chuck Todd. He can't do anything, right? Oh, well no, he's not doing enough Democrats. And then it's like he does that. Oh, well, that's nothing. It's like he was legally right, go ahead. It's okay to think two ways. It's okay to say, while they were slow out of the gate, while they could have had a response ready to go, and to also say, hey, I'm not executive order. That's a good step. Great. More of this. Yes, we are. We are abortion improv artists. Yes, yes, and. Yes, and? This one, the federal waters thing. I think interesting, right?

She's a cancer survivor. And as somebody who has followed her for years and worked with her, that was pretty tough for all of us, not to mention what she went through, and yet she beat it. And when she beat cancer, the journey she was on was inspirational to anyone who knows her because being the strong person of faith that she is, she never, ever expressed any doubt or reluctance to embrace the idea that God had this that God was in control no matter what the outcome God had this. And you know that about people of faith, you know that deeply spiritual believers. Understand that no matter what adversity you face, God has this. It may not be the outcome you want, maybe it will. And thank God in barb yoder's case, it was exactly the outcome that we had all been praying for. She beat it, she is fit and healthy and ever smiling and a great presence in my life.

"bay area" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho

"He was a champion there, and in Noah, he was in the tag match with misawa when we saw what died. Wow. And he died at the age of 41 in Puerto Rico. And it was a really tragic story of a really, really great man that really could have, you know, he was 6 foot four built like a brick shithouse, just like a total beast of a human being that could have been a lot bigger, even though he made some good strides in Japan and in Puerto Rico, but bison Smith is one project where we're looking at working on right now. But we want to fly to Puerto Rico to interview some of the wrestlers down there. We've already made connections with some people with Noah. We're just trying to get as much as we can go on because from the start when we wanted to make these documentaries, we wanted to showcase kind of the things that the average dressing fan didn't always pay attention to. So we did Michael modest because most people think Michael modest says, oh, that guy from beyond the mat. You know, he wrestled Tony Jones, and then whatever happened to him. So we wanted to focus on him. Barry wrestling, you know, what was this? Oh, I remember seeing this YouTube video where Chris Jericho wrestled some guy in Newark. What was that? Oh, this is the story of that place. And then bison Smith is one of those guys where, you know, if you ever go back and watch some misawa matches or any of these guys and Noah, you'll be like, dang, who's this giant blond Mohawk American? Like, who is this guy? And that's the guy we want to focus on next. So we've always been about kind of showcasing the untold or lesser known stories of indie wrestling. That's kind of what we and you've mentioned earlier. If you're trying to do something for the money, it's not going to work out. These are the things that we love. And that's why we want to concentrate on these things. It was interesting because there's been always such a great wrestling tradition in Northern California. And I never put two and two together, I just happened to be talking to Pam to Bailey a couple days ago about something or other, and we were talking about Bay Area. I was like, why did I never think that you knew all of these guys? And then she took a video of you guys watch the documentary Shane, you're in it. I got to see it for the first time in 30 years. It's just cool that there's always these big names that come from your area of the country that get arrested and she's probably the flag bearer for the Bay Area in wrestling right now. Yeah, you have Pam and you got another one with you right now, Chris, Aaron solo. That's right. Yeah, that's true. Another Bay Area brother. So we got all the mobs, of course. That's right. That's right. A lot of you guys, but what is the best match that you think ever happened in Bay Area wrestling? Is there one that stands out? Well, it had to be one with Shane Cody. Is it Chris Jericho and Shane Cody? I think that's it. Well, I think that's it. I think that's where it peaked. Yeah, that was it. That's funny. What was your favorite match did you ever had Shane? Because I know you had a career outside of Bay Area as well. Wow, there's just so many I had so many the Ballard brothers, Johnny Starr, Danny Garcia, there was quite a few so many good matches that came out of barrier wrestling. Watching the Johnny Pearson cracks all he matches. I really like because he's really smooth. He's really flows. He's got the charisma. I really enjoy watching those matches back. Last question is, what's your final kind of thought on Bay Area wrestling as a whole? And I'll start watching the documentary was a blast because like I said, I think one of you guys said earlier, a great moment in time that was very important to a lot of people for that two or three year time frame that was open and it was only three matches for me, but it was very integral in a lot of ways. Not only from what happened directly, but indirectly. Like I said, just going to another place and showing up in the locker room as a total stranger. You know, you learn life lessons from doing things like that. And when I think of Barry wrestling, I think a smile because my hair was terrible, but the smile and the experience was awesome. So that's kind of my overall thought about Bay Area wrestling. How about for you guys? A couple of years ago, Bailey sent you that video and you made a remark about your hair. It was awkward stage. It's like, you know, the page boy. What do you think, pat, what's kind of your thoughts on Bay Area? Well, you know, talking about here, I would love to have hair like that again. That was just a few moons ago. The outside of everything else we've talked about about working with moolah and Mae young. The one thing that stands out in my memory is Johnny Starr and Shane Cody. And I'm not saying it's the best wrestling. It was just the best feud. It was presented as a storyline to the fans in such a way that it was over. You know, it was like watching ray Stevens getting beat by pepper Gomez at the cow palace in 1966, you know, all Shane Cody finally got his. Oh, look at his belt. Him and Laurie are taking away with the bathroom, so Johnny starts still doesn't have the belt, but he's the champion. That that memory stands out to me the most. How about you, Paul? A lot of good memories out of a lot of good memories. I'm just looking forward to sharing more stories from the Bay Area from the players in the Bay Area. It's kind of cool that we get to immortalize all these people that we've interviewed and people in the past show them the history of beer wrestling and we want to thank you, Chris, for putting the documentary over for never forgetting where you come from. Even a couple of years ago when Paco Alonso passed away and I saw that you posted about Baku on your Twitter that was really beautiful. I was really cool. So yeah, thank you for always giving back to wrestling. Chris has done good. He's reached out to wrestlers that's in bad times and stuff. Absolutely. The main thing is that, you know, they always say you always want to pop the boys. That's the people who really matters. You pop the boys in the back, then it's the best. The best is the feedback we've got, not from fans, but from people who are workers, people who are workers now, like people like Levi Shapiro, he wrestles for championship wrestling in Hollywood, and he's a younger wrestler, but he loves the old school style. And he was more happy about this documentary than anyone else. And he's, you know, he's like maybe late 20s, early 30s, and he was so excited for it. So I love, I love the wrestlers that appreciate it and want to learn more about the history that of the business that they're in. Well, the documentary does that woody farmers Bay Area wrestling on YouTube and great talking to you guys man, a great senior pat and Shane has been like you said almost 30 years. That's insane. That's way too long, but it's good to talk to you guys again and remember those days. You know, Shane Cody still wrestling if you want to rematch try to get that one back. 30 year rebound. I still got a bump from the cowbell. I'll be the guest ring announcer. Thank you guys. It's been a pleasure. Thank you. Thank you for everything. Thanks, Chris. Thanks bro. Take care, guys. Thank you. Bye..

"He was a champion there, and in Noah, he was in the tag match with misawa when we saw what died. Wow. And he died at the age of 41 in Puerto Rico. And it was a really tragic story of a really, really great man that really could have, you know, he was 6 foot four built like a brick shithouse, just like a total beast of a human being that could have been a lot bigger, even though he made some good strides in Japan and in Puerto Rico, but bison Smith is one project where we're looking at working on right now. But we want to fly to Puerto Rico to interview some of the wrestlers down there. We've already made connections with some people with Noah. We're just trying to get as much as we can go on because from the start when we wanted to make these documentaries, we wanted to showcase kind of the things that the average dressing fan didn't always pay attention to. So we did Michael modest because most people think Michael modest says, oh, that guy from beyond the mat. You know, he wrestled Tony Jones, and then whatever happened to him. So we wanted to focus on him. Barry wrestling, you know, what was this? Oh, I remember seeing this YouTube video where Chris Jericho wrestled some guy in Newark. What was that? Oh, this is the story of that place. And then bison Smith is one of those guys where, you know, if you ever go back and watch some misawa matches or any of these guys and Noah, you'll be like, dang, who's this giant blond Mohawk American? Like, who is this guy? And that's the guy we want to focus on next. So we've always been about kind of showcasing the untold or lesser known stories of indie wrestling. That's kind of what we and you've mentioned earlier. If you're trying to do something for the money, it's not going to work out. These are the things that we love. And that's why we want to concentrate on these things. It was interesting because there's been always such a great wrestling tradition in Northern California. And I never put two and two together, I just happened to be talking to Pam to Bailey a couple days ago about something or other, and we were talking about Bay Area. I was like, why did I never think that you knew all of these guys? And then she took a video of you guys watch the documentary Shane, you're in it. I got to see it for the first time in 30 years. It's just cool that there's always these big names that come from your area of the country that get arrested and she's probably the flag bearer for the Bay Area in wrestling right now. Yeah, you have Pam and you got another one with you right now, Chris, Aaron solo. That's right. Yeah, that's true. Another Bay Area brother. So we got all the mobs, of course. That's right. That's right. A lot of you guys, but what is the best match that you think ever happened in Bay Area wrestling? Is there one that stands out? Well, it had to be one with Shane Cody. Is it Chris Jericho and Shane Cody? I think that's it. Well, I think that's it. I think that's where it peaked. Yeah, that was it. That's funny. What was your favorite match did you ever had Shane? Because I know you had a career outside of Bay Area as well. Wow, there's just so many I had so many the Ballard brothers, Johnny Starr, Danny Garcia, there was quite a few so many good matches that came out of barrier wrestling. Watching the Johnny Pearson cracks all he matches. I really like because he's really smooth. He's really flows. He's got the charisma. I really enjoy watching those matches back. Last question is, what's your final kind of thought on Bay Area wrestling as a whole? And I'll start watching the documentary was a blast because like I said, I think one of you guys said earlier, a great moment in time that was very important to a lot of people for that two or three year time frame that was open and it was only three matches for me, but it was very integral in a lot of ways.

"The fall in ASUS, what was it like interviewing the guys after 30 years and who were some of your favorite interviews, the characters that kind of stand out. It was very interesting to see because for instance, we had Danny Garcia and super Diablo. Two family members, one lot more old school than the other. The older one, you would answer questions in a way that he could still protecting the business. Still, still very still very key. Still to this day. And then like super Diablo comes on and he's literally like, well, we all know this is fake. We're all dancing around. You know what I mean? So he was great to see the different ways that different people answered the same questions. We asked a lot of them the same questions to see what their take on it was. And for it to have one be so completely stone faced like the business is real brother. And then the other guy just completely breaking kayfabe all over the place. That was great. It was great to hear Cody talk about his father. Because it's different to have a bunch of wrestlers who worked for a guy and liked a guy. And it's different to have a guy who literally was raised by him. That way you get more of a personal insight, which I think sometimes you don't get on some documentaries. If you don't actually interview family members, it was a real highlight to interview him, especially because Cody, at a wrestling event, Cody's very much like joking around kind of not really gets you personal in the conversation. But there, he was more willing to open up. And it was really nice to see the side of Cody. This guy who I've seen wrestles since I was a kid. And the Portuguese hall in Newark, California, you know, for years and years, you know? My favorite portion of the whole documentary is the Mae young, the Mae young part. I had a blast editing that the stories that the guys would tell and how all their stories coincide and then we call back Mae young during your segment, Chris. When he was like, who is this old lady that keeps it like? Her pants shoes on the microphone. Explain that for people who haven't seen the documentary, explain what you're talking about. Oh, so the panty. Yeah, depending when she would see pain depending just got really worse than it would get really heavy. She was doing yeah, it started out and then she could see more pain going on and be like. And then there are starting to get phone calls back into the cable station about this lady panton on there. So nicely had to take her off, but I mean, she was there, she was wet in her late 70s. And she was still taking bumps down at the school. She was older. Shrimp draining women down there and she was just such a tough lady. I mean, I couldn't see my grandma doing nothing much. Was she living in that area or something like that? How did she get affiliated with Bay Area? She had family out here in San Leandro or Sara Lorenzo. She had family out here in the Bay Area. Gotcha. It makes you staying with moolah. And mula would come out here and had a place out here and they would share a residence from time to time here in the Bay Area as well. During that period, yeah. Yeah, I remember, like you said, that was that she was the manager for the Spanish hit, man. And I watched that match back and it didn't turn out very well. There was a lot of mistakes and things like that. And I just remember she was just kicking the shit out of me on the floor and I remember like, who is this lady that is crazy lady? Like, you know, this is pre Mae young and the WWE. Like, no one really knew unless she came from that area. And I remember she had on her forearm, which I saw years later, almost like an anchor, like a Popeye anchor, like some kind of a sailor tattoo, like you said, she's like a 70 year old lady. I mentioned that to her years later when the times when I was because she was always very friendly in WWE. She was really nice lady, and I said, yeah, I wrestled with you and Bay Area wrestling with woody farmer and probably had no idea what I was talking about, but she always loved talking about woody and just being there and it was just like, she's like screaming and yelling, but it was cool to see her ten years later after, oh, that's who that lady was. She was a legend. I get it now. I mean, did you think in a small Bay Area school, you see a 70 year old lady? And of course, you have aspirations to get bigger in the business. But did you think you would meet the 70 year old lady in the WWE ten years later? No. But what I did, it all made sense because you have to keep this in mind too. There was no Google back then or anything so you could just Google, you know, Mae young and see your old history. And also, her name was Johnny Mae young, and I think I forgot the man. I was telling people that Johnny young, it's a lady. I don't know who Johnny young is. That's an old lady named Johnny young. And in Canada, no one knew what the I was talking about. Now you go back and realize that she had this huge career and it was just, it was one of those cool stops on my journey to be able to say that I did it. You know, and you were watching her in the documentary when she's trying to splash guys off the ropes and but she used to babysit Vince, right? Yeah, maybe he said Vince and then I mean, I have had in my dad's guys that he used to wrestle that remember her in her early career and they said that she be pulled up in a Harley smoking a cigar. I have a son who's in his early 30s now and so back then he was obviously just a toddler and there were many times when moolah and Mae young and myself and possibly woody and my ex-wife would go out to dinner together or out to lunch and they would just have a field day just bouncing my son who was just a little shaver then on her knee, you know? It's the sight of her that you never saw. And moolah was the same way and that's kind of a cool memory I have of those two. The other documentary we did where we talked to Michael modest who was on beyond the mat. He mentioned when he was started training, it was a shared gym between woody farmer and Jerry. Jerry Monique and Mae young was there..

"Know, I know because you said you got that from woody farmer. And I feel like that's why we didn't want to just call it Bay Area wrestling. I know I can speak for Jesus when I say that. The reason we wanted to call it woody farmers Bayer wrestling was because it's not just a documentary about boy bear wrestling. It's also a tribute to woody farmer of the man and the people whose lives he touched in this short run promotion that meant a lot to a lot of people. Right. Well, another thing too that I really like about it when you look back and, you know, you mentioned the quote of doing those three matches for free. I was never supposed to like I got ripped off. I was never promised any money, nor did I ask for any money. Like I said, I flew myself in from Canada with the hopes of getting some more traction. And the way that it paid off for me and you mentioned his name was Alan Bolton. We talked about it. The documentary as well. He was writing for one of the magazines at the time, and I ended up getting a four or 5 page story in this national magazine. That was currency once again. I keep using that word, but I could use that now to send it around to other promoters or even if I didn't send it to anybody. People were reading the magazines going on, who's this guy? And then suddenly, when you go to smoky mountain wrestling or whatever it may be, oh, I read about that guy in a magazine or whatever. So it did pay off, and it was worth way more than the 50 bucks that I might have got for doing the match. My point is we were all doing it for the right reasons. Which is always the way to start anything successfully is if you do it for the right reasons and you do a good job, the money will follow you. If you do something just for the money, it's probably not going to pay off in the long run anyways and working with Bay Area wrestling did pay off in the long run for a lot of guys. And it's funny the footprints and the tracks it's left years afterwards. I know surfaced in my career in the business because for a while I was doing this Paragon pro wrestling, which would shoot once a month in Las Vegas and we'd be down that we'd fly in like a Wednesday or Thursday and fly out Saturday and they flew in this one referee like from the Midwest and it was right when the video surfaced on YouTube of you, your match with you and Cody and of course I'm introducing it and the first thing that I never met this referee, you worked with Chris Jericho. It's crazy how the Bay Area wrestling just what being rewritten was is kind of following us.

"Years old at 12 every summer. Down in Texas, Oklahoma, north South Carolina, Mexico, he did work for Roy, but he had his own company down here that was a pill moving company. And he didn't want to wrestle for way too much because he was running in too many issues with when they'd go to moves and stuff like that. People wanted to fight. So that's great. He slowed down. He worked for Roy, but he worked for every single promoter out there to tell you the truth. Just what such good times and memories and stuff like that growing up never thought that'd be getting into the business later on in life. Texas was just remember like Dickie Murdoch killer Carl Cox haystack Calhoun, a lot of memories with those guys. I used to a couple times when I was a smokey mountain wrestling travel with dick Murdoch and he had a superpower where he could throw a beer bottle out the window and hit a speed limit sign every time. He'd be like. He never missed the guys were a lot more characters back in those days for sure. So how did talking about Bay Area that the TV show, how did that kind of all come to be? Pat, you said that you started working there in about 89 or so. What was woody's idea behind Bay Area and getting it on TV? Was it hard to get a spot and kind of tell us about how it started off? Woody had a talk show on a local cable station out of the Newark Union City area as I described earlier in the podcast here when wrestling started to become popular, that producer, I believe his name was Kurt. He asked woody well, you've got this wrestling school and you go around doing these spot shows, do you think we could put a little show together? So what he goes, well, yeah, I got the announcer. I got the boys. I think we can do that. I got the ring. And we started doing it in the studio, which was another cool thing about Bay Area wrestling. It was a studio production. And then sports channel picked this up. And somebody from sports channel contacted woody and said, why don't you send us a couple of audition tapes? That took a while. Shane, we sent probably four or 5 audition tapes to them. And I'm saying tapes because they were tapes back then. Yeah. And then finally, they said, yeah, this looks good. In fact, there was a time when I was just the ring announcer of the interviewer, and I wasn't doing play by play. I wasn't doing any commentary. Producer at sports channel said, well, how about did this guy seems to be because I was in broadcasting for about four or 5 years before I started in wrestling. And one of the producers at this sports channel said, well, how about this pat Kelly guy? He seems to be able to talk. Why don't we put him at ringside for commentary and that's how I became the interviewer ring announcer and commentator at ringside before you knew it, we were on every Saturday night on the sports channel. Well, that's something that you guys kept saying on the documentary and you made a great point of it was that there was television. And television was currency back at that time. I mean, it still is, but back in the early 90s, if you weren't really in the WWF, there was really not a lot of TV to be on. So the fact that you guys had a weekly show kind of was very valuable at that point in time. It was definitely a jumping off point for a lot of guys yourself included that went on to have careers in the business. As I did, I still own a promotion, a local promotion that's based here in Northern California these days, PWA pro wrestling alliance. So I still have my hand in the business. I went on, I was on a show on the Fox station in Portland, Oregon for a number of years. There was a failed network show that was going to be on the pop TV network, Paragon pro wrestling. That never really got off the ground. But it was a springboard for me as well. So a lot of us came out of that three year period really with a lot of experience that was valuable to us. As we carried it on into other ventures and other promotions and broadcasts no kind of explained what the reach of sports channel America was for Bay Area. The different areas that they were broadcasting because of that.

"Years old at 12 every summer. Down in Texas, Oklahoma, north South Carolina, Mexico, he did work for Roy, but he had his own company down here that was a pill moving company. And he didn't want to wrestle for way too much because he was running in too many issues with when they'd go to moves and stuff like that. People wanted to fight. So that's great. He slowed down. He worked for Roy, but he worked for every single promoter out there to tell you the truth. Just what such good times and memories and stuff like that growing up never thought that'd be getting into the business later on in life. Texas was just remember like Dickie Murdoch killer Carl Cox haystack Calhoun, a lot of memories with those guys. I used to a couple times when I was a smokey mountain wrestling travel with dick Murdoch and he had a superpower where he could throw a beer bottle out the window and hit a speed limit sign every time. He'd be like. He never missed the guys were a lot more characters back in those days for sure. So how did talking about Bay Area that the TV show, how did that kind of all come to be? Pat, you said that you started working there in about 89 or so. What was woody's idea behind Bay Area and getting it on TV? Was it hard to get a spot and kind of tell us about how it started off? Woody had a talk show on a local cable station out of the Newark Union City area as I described earlier in the podcast here when wrestling started to become popular, that producer, I believe his name was Kurt. He asked woody well, you've got this wrestling school and you go around doing these spot shows, do you think we could put a little show together? So what he goes, well, yeah, I got the announcer. I got the boys. I think we can do that. I got the ring. And we started doing it in the studio, which was another cool thing about Bay Area wrestling. It was a studio production. And then sports channel picked this up. And somebody from sports channel contacted woody and said, why don't you send us a couple of audition tapes? That took a while. Shane, we sent probably four or 5 audition tapes to them. And I'm saying tapes because they were tapes back then. Yeah. And then finally, they said, yeah, this looks good. In fact, there was a time when I was just the ring announcer of the interviewer, and I wasn't doing play by play. I wasn't doing any commentary. Producer at sports channel said, well, how about did this guy seems to be because I was in broadcasting for about four or 5 years before I started in wrestling. And one of the producers at this sports channel said, well, how about this pat Kelly guy? He seems to be able to talk. Why don't we put him at ringside for commentary and that's how I became the interviewer ring announcer and commentator at ringside before you knew it, we were on every Saturday night on the sports channel. Well, that's something that you guys kept saying on the documentary and you made a great point of it was that there was television. And television was currency back at that time. I mean, it still is, but back in the early 90s, if you weren't really in the WWF, there was really not a lot of TV to be on. So the fact that you guys had a weekly show kind of was very valuable at that point in time. It was definitely a jumping off point for a lot of guys yourself included that went on to have careers in the business. As I did, I still own a promotion, a local promotion that's based here in Northern California these days, PWA pro wrestling alliance. So I still have my hand in the business.

"bay area" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho

"Right, so I watched a documentary over the last few weeks about Bay Area rests like now Bay Area wrestling was a company that I worked for very briefly in the summer of 1992. And I wanted to talk about that and the documentary and the amazing history behind this company. So Paul Ponte's here and Jesus Cruz who made the movie. And then pat Kelly, who was the great ring announcer and color commentator on the show, and then of course Shane Cody, who was one of the top stars of Bay Area wrestling, and the son of the promoter woody farmer, a very famous name, especially in the Northern California, a wrestling scene. First, I guess I'll start with you, Paul. How did you get the idea to start working on this documentary and putting it all together? So me and Hayes Cruz here have been recording, doing websites, photography, for indie promotions across Northern California, including all pro wrestling and specifically big time wrestling, which Shane Cody was wrestling in. And we always heard them talk about Bay Area wrestling and the stories behind it. And all the people that passed through it, including yourself and Mikey lockwood, aka crash Holly, moolah, Mae young, and Jesus really is the one who decided, you know, we have all this footage. We have all this story to tell, so we thought it would make for a pretty compelling piece. Yeah, back in 1997, when I was going to school at the TV station where the wrestling took place, the TV station offered classes for high school students. So I jumped on it and sure enough, the first couple of weeks I was there, Shane Cody's dad was still doing a couple of like one offs here and there in the studio along with the promoter called Kirk white rest in peace here in big science. So yeah, that was my first introduction to television was working in wrestling and then when I found out the history of Bay Area wrestling in that particular studio. It definitely piqued my interest and I just started asking around and Shane Cody had all the footage still from that time. So you owned all that footage obviously, Shane, that was like your family's treasure sort of thing, right? Yeah, more or less, and then when the cable station ended up shutting down, I went down there and grabbed all the rest of the footage that was there, which is amazing because back in those days there was a little bit of a prolific, especially in the 70s and 80s of just erasing the tapes and putting the new shows over top of it. So it's lucky that you were able to grab as much of it as you did, Shane. Yeah. I probably had a couple hundred tapes there. A lot of it that couldn't even get to because I still have a wrestling ring sitting in my garage. Yeah, he's got boxes and filing cabinets full of teams and these are the old school three quarter inch tapes that not a lot of there's not a lot of decks around, but since I've worked in broadcasting for since 97, I have access to stations that still have this technology, which allowed me to digitize all this footage. So how did you? Because I still have the Bay Area wrestling ring still sitting in my garage. All these years. When did the company shut down basically? 93, I think. Yeah, I think the very, very beginning about this time in 1993, January or February. But then they would have like one offs. They had life. Right. So how did you put together kind of the list of guys that you wanted to talk to, Paul? Because, I mean, we have pat and Shane here, but there's a whole list of guys that you're able to talk to from that era. Was it easy to find them all you've been in contact with them at some point in time? Well, a lot of them, luckily, they remained in contact not necessarily all the time. That footage you see in the beginning of the documentary when they're seeing each other, that's the first time a lot of them have seen each other in over ten years. It's a real moment. That moment would Kelly comes up and he says, you know, this sorry group of mothers. That's a real moment. That's the first thing you said when he walked up. That wasn't staged. That was just how it went down. So basically just throughout Friends of Friends, although we had a few people hit us up after the documentary came out and said, you should have interviewed us, but were you guys fans of bay areas? Is that how you got the idea to do this? Paul and Jesus? Yeah, I mean, yeah, like I said, the station that we were in, we kind of could not not see it. You know, it was just right in front of us, and then so I just look at these old tapes and I'd just be mesmerized, like, oh wow, you guys had Mae young here and of course I knew young at the time from bubba ray Dudley powerbombing her after the little runway there. But yeah, so it was like, dude, this is amazing. It's amazing that happened in this little small town of Newark, California is like, you know, Chris Jericho ended up here, you know? It's just kind of like unbelievable. Looks kind of go back to the beginning of this, how did you get involved with this company and becoming the announcer of the voice of the show? What happened with my story there is actually how I met woody farmer and I was working at a radio station Stockton California. A promoter came into town. This is 1986 and this is just when all the territories had dissolved, wrestling was going through this renaissance. Hugely popular. And promoter comes into town. And he's going to be running a show at the stock Pacific auditorium. I tell him how I was a fan. My first time at wrestling in a cow palace in San Francisco, not too far from where we're sitting right now, ray Stevens and pepper Gomez in the main event. I would go on to work with both of those gentlemen later on in life, which is kind of ironic. So I show up at the civic auditorium. It sold out 4 million 505,000 people. It's my first night in the business. And the card is fairly stellar. It's superstar Billy Graham, Rocky Johnson, Jimmy snook, a Playboy buddy rose, and I'm probably forgetting a few names. And woody farmer and Rex farmer AKA Shane Cody. After the matches, woody walks up to me and he says, well, pat great job tonight. How come I haven't seen you before in the business? How come we haven't had run into each other and I told woody was, well, this is it. My first night in the business. He goes, well, you belong in this business. And he said, I've got a promotion. I put some shows together now and then. Would you ring an ounce for me? Certainly, I would. Other promoters were there that night. I began ring announcing for them, other indie promoters. And then I worked with woody and with Shane for a couple of years and then along about 88, 89 Bay Area wrestling was starting and so that was my first exposure to broadcasting wrestling. On television and I had to, you know, go back to people that I enjoyed influences for me, guys like gene okerlund, Jim Ross is probably in there. Gordon solely, and I tried to just be in amalgam of them and go on the air, do the best I could. Now this area where you're talking with Newark and Hayward in Northern California kind of the San Francisco area. Obviously, rusty was super popular for many years with Roy shires, territory, and Shane, did you grow up in the area, was woody working for Roy scheier? Was he traveling a lot where you kind of like a part of a traveling family or how was that for you growing up with woody is your father? Chris, I've been around it my whole life. I get to travel with my dad from 5 years old at 12 every summer. Down in Texas, Oklahoma, north South Carolina, Mexico, he did work for Roy,.

"Them kevin costner. Who's had a nice year. But the moment. I keep hearing this. I have friends that are giants fans. They keep saying this is their destiny. Feels like feels like it. Because you have all these older guys who are having career years in their mid thirties late thirties but to win playoff series. You just like the dodgers played this movie several times when they at the beginning of this run that they've had the marco have great regular season win a west coast and they'd get into a playoff series or a world series and they look up and the other team had three aces right and the other team had everyone come out of the bullpen. Throwing one hundred and they would have clayton kershaw. Who couldn't kwait do it or they'd have to squeezed four innings at five innings at a rich hill. Or they have to squeeze like they. Did you have the stacked pitching lineup that they do now. And so is in the postseason for some of these teams and to me. That's really what the divers have done differently. These last couple of years as i was just on. Tv in here They they had bueller sherzer and click and clayton kershaw was on screen. And then there's aureus. Yes i mean. So it's an embarrassment of riches. They're pitching but yeah. I mean. I've never disputed the fact that the dodgers are the better team on paper and they've performed. I can't say better than the giants because they're behind the giants right now but it's been equal and if i had to choose rosters i'd take the dodgers but when you start hearing that destiny nonsense coming out of there. They make believe they're better than what they are. Remember when it was the i think it was pat. Riley's heat when they did the all in thing and it was a bunch of vets and they all of a sudden they just caught fire and won a championship. Because yeah so a lot of stuff going on in la today and as you talk about the miami heat and they're going to win five not six championships. Right mean other heat team okay. That's the other famous team. I was coming off today this morning. At sea bomber in the clippers big groundbreaking. And i've got to tell you that that arena is going to be amazing. It is going to be this giant state of the art halo board like they have like an acre of lights like an acre of lights. I don't even know what that means. That sounds like it sounds like a lot so you think about it like thinking about it like a like a speed skating track so that it's going to be two sided halo instead of scoreboard. That's like a big box in the center. It's going to be a halo around the court and as gonna be really cool. Explain that again instead of a spare board. It's going to. Your board is usually like a big giant box. This is going to be like a ribbon foresight. Yeah it's going to be like a like a speed skating all the way around the track. Nice like every seem bomber. Pay two billion dollars for the clippers. And then he's gonna pay two billion dollars for this stadium if you think. But don't worry he's he like the man's is worth one hundred eight billion dollars. Not billion with a b. is he. He's got enough money to go up in space right. They said it was fifty. Five mil go up. you think. He's a space guy. I mean he do that anytime you want. And fifty five million to him. It's like five dollars for. I don't think he would. Because i think he's really obsessed big isn't he. He's six five fit. No no he's all about like the comfy seats like he's going to have the biggest seats at the arena and he's like really into like i gotta have enough bathroom. Everybody i mean these are like it's kind of fun but he's he's like he seems cool. Yes cool but like. I'm down there and i'm watching this so excited bomber gets excited like he'd just is excited by nature but then he gets talking about this and he started talking about championships. He's like we're gonna win a bunch of championships before we even get to this arena. And then we're gonna gets and we're gonna win solar. He's he goes where you send me like. Oh this is gonna be like that's really cool. It's awesome vision. And then he goes can be better than the hall of fame because we only championships house. Like i see how this happens. You get excited and you start talking and then you start saying we're gonna win championships and then you just double down on it and then you realize like i said at once i said it twice a month. We'll say it a third time and go even further you know. You uber jumped off a cliff into the water. Neither never well okay. Well i had aired even looking over the clinton too but like like he said when you start talking about champion once you'd like it once you jump and you're out in the air and there's nowhere to go but down you might as well have some fun. You know you're already out there you know. Yeah can't go back so you nuts about like so you're talking about leaving your and i get a little nervous too i get. I mean you heard me the day that you see supposed to. I'm always on masonite. See mason was supposed to lead his comrex. Dropped out right at the top of the show. We play this all the time. Because it's like hello. Hello oh it's just me talking. Okay wow here you can hear like career flashing before my. It's good no but see that makes you grow. You know when. I was a rookie. I was in san diego places getting ready to play. The chargers and the special teams coach was named wayne severe. God rest his soul. So i'm a rookie. I'm backing up sean gilbert. I'm also back it up on special teams that day and he walks while we're stretching this is stretching before the game like the chargers are out there. We're out there. The game's about to happen in like twenty minutes and he goes. Hey how you feel. I said i feel good coach. Ready to go. He goes good. You're leading the wedge today on kick return. Oh right okay. A- ask me how many reps. I took that week in practice in the wedge zero. Now i gotta go block the chargers in a wedge and i have absolutely no idea how to return this thing so that was nerves but we had a good day returning. So we're gonna have a good day today with me leaving show Happy one more thing. So these sherzer trade your into this more than i am. The max scherzer trade turner trade best trade. They've ever made best trade. The dodgers have ever made is. Is that just like now talk. Or is that for real the his dodgers. That's the best trade ever so far has been. I think it's a crazy thing to say because it sounds very hyperbolic like forever. Yeah people say. I think four times a week. He said it's the best day ever. You produce him every time. It was the best day ever since yesterday. Okay because that was also the best ever. I it has been. It has been though. If you think about how impactful shares are has been how impactful trae turner has been probably the best regular season trade. I've ever see now. But shouldn't we wait until the season is over..

Here's the thing about their now. Favourite bread neither. Jonathan or lauren had even heard of dutch crunch until they moved to the bay area. And when i tried it i was like wow. This is the best sandwich bread i've ever had. So they came to be curious with this very important question. We wanna know. Where does dutch french bread come from. And why is it seemingly only available in the vary. Move over sourdot today. Bay curious is bringing you a story. We first aired in two thousand nineteen. We'll take a bite of dutch crunch support for bay. Curious comes from sierra. Nevada brewing company family owned operated and argued over since one thousand nine hundred eighty proud supporter of independent thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more at sierra nevada dot com to get to the bottom of the dutch crunch origin story. We asked reporter. Amanda font to get crackling. I grew up in southern california but went to college. Sf state the first time. I encountered dutch crunch. I was at the ice in the student center. It was a revelation what makes the unique is the crunchy topping. That's baked onto the top of the role. That's what puts the crunch in dutch crunch. But what is it. I asked a professional. My name is mike. Mike rose and co owner of semi freddie's bakery on his business card. Mike lists his title as mad scientist because making great baked goods require scientific precision. I met him over at semi. Freddie's world headquarters in alameda for a tour and to see how they make that bread. The bakery is huge with a long row of enormous ovens dozens of hair net clad workers carry bags of flour or mix ingredients together. There's a whole walk in fridge filled with slowly developing sour. Go and as you can imagine. It smells incredible. But i'm here for the dutch crunch. So what are the ingredients in that crackly golden so delicious. I don't care that it's cutting the roof of my mouth. Special topping was topping our rice firewater. Sugar yeast oil and salt. All those things go into a big industrial mixer to be beaten into a paste. Meanwhile the bread dough is machine. Cut into square pieces that get rolled into sandwich size loaves on a conveyor belt. They get a final hand shaping as their set onto trays. They will the giant bowl full of topping. Mix over and scoop it into some pastry bags. Then they coat the whole top of each dough role in one smooth motion using a wide flat pastry tip in their raw state. They look like really pale. Maple bar doughnuts after being topped the pace. The trays of roles go into approved box and they were rise for several hours. You may have heard the term proof on the great british bake off the will been approved. It's been depraved depraved depraved. In this case we're talking about a warm slightly humid box where the raw dough can rise when the roles are baked. The topping crisps and snaps. Apart giving the roles their signature correctly. Look and now for a quick dutch crunch. asmar break just likely squeezing crackly topping. Now we know what makes the crunch but what about this dutch business. I asked mike if he knew anything about its origins I understand there's something called tiger bread. Bingo tiger bread is another name for dutch crunch. so called. because of its vaguely stripy pattern. I asked a friend of the show to pronounce the dutch translation of this name. Hi i'm neil's i'm from gunson. In the netherlands. I pronounce it tabled. It turns out dutch crunch. Aka tiger bread aka diabled isn't a california invention just borrowing the name of another place like the french dip sandwich it actually has dutch routes. That seems to go back to at least the early twentieth century in the netherlands. Erika j peters runs the culinary historians of northern california. I didn't know much about dutch. Crunches history in the bay area when you first got in touch with me and i was delighted to to get a chance to look into this. It's hard to trace the exact migration of tiger brad to the united states but it seems to have landed in the pacific northwest. What i found was that that's crunch as a term really starts in oregon around. Eugene oregon is is where we start seeing it in the nineteen thirties. That's right. the bay area was not the first american port for this beloved upon. The klamath news says the dutch crunch bread with delicious butter rice topping. So that is the. I mentioned that that i see is nineteen. Forty one to what makes it a dutch crunch. Bread newspapers ran. Ads for this delightful. New bread with slogans. Like it's fun to lunch on dutch. Crunch haven't tried this bread. Be to pick up almost for a real treat. Distinctive topping gives a delicious flavour. Which foreign dose to and within the decade bay area bakers began offering it locally but the california recipe wasn't quite the same. They're not doing that rice wash. They are instead using sesame seeds to get the crunch. We didn't start using the dutch crunch recipe. We know in love today until the early seventies. that's when people in san francisco start referring to making the bread with a rice flour. Wash the same as the people in oregon and in other parts of the country by then have been doing it. Turns out the bay area can't lay claim to the creation of dutch crunch and we don't have exclusive interest. I found it at a couple portland. sandwich shops. Tiger bread is still a thing in europe. And the new england grocery chain wegmans offers a similarly topped loaf. They call marco polo brad. However dutch crunch does seem to be more ubiquitous and popular in the bay area than anywhere else. It's not our baby but we raised it right. Can we get more of those crackly sounds. Oh yeah maybe we just chock it up to good. Taste that was reporter amanda font. Today's question came from morin alexander and jonathan hillis. If you're still crazy for carbs after that story you should check out our episode. About what makes san francisco sourdot unique will include a link in our show notes. Bay curious is made in san francisco at member supported. our show is produced by katrina schwartz. Brendan willard knee. Olivia allen price. Have a great week. Hey everyone olivia allen price here.

"Through our general where four hundred actors come over the course of a three day weekend and are seen by something like eighty or ninety different companies all at once. It's a huge event for the actors. But it's a huge event for the theaters as well. We get to see an awful lot of people all at once and they get to connect with each other to. There's a very big important social component of it so we're trying to connect people to opportunities and to resources and that's true both for individual artists and companies so for the last twenty something years. We've been running different. Granting programs cash is our most famous when our flagship of our granting programs i was actually in a small organization and that was the first grant that i'd ever one was a cash grant which was during its initial roll out before i was a a staff member at tv. And i know how important that was to this tiny little organization that i was one of the founders of informing to get that money to be able to get a show up on its feet and for many many organizations over the last twenty years small organizations individual artists very often the first grant they get or one of the few grants able to get because grants typically go to larger budget organizations than very often. They're just not available to individual artists but the cash grants had them for twenty something years. And that's been a big part of what we do as well. and then we do professional development. We do trainings for folks in for companies as well as we do that. In classes courses in annual conference and for many many years folks would have known as through our printed magazine which was called the theatre bay area or continuing journalistic tradition. Now online through our website into our biweekly newsletter. That we put out. We do hire journalists to cover stories in the field and when you say artists it's really actors actresses or someone who basically present says an actor if you will and then there's playwrights directors designers technicians. All of those folks end very much to the individual. Practitioner includes theater administrators. Who are trying to make a go of it and get started in a career or perhaps veterans as well so the entire ecosystem if you will so much of theater is about in person experience rights especially the auditions etc so how has covid nineteen impacted future bay area over this last year. So yeah you're talking about the auditions the general additions that we do once a year for the four hundred is also. The book ended by auditions..

eighty three day four hundred four hundred actors first grant nineteen last year twenty something years both one ninety different companies last twenty years a year biweekly grants of people last twenty something years years
