"It was laborious and it had become a in some ways a play thing for Howard Finkel. We're Howard would have guys do interviews that would never air. And when we started looking at the stockpile of everything that we had just came up with a better way to do it. And I stole the idea from mid south because that's how we had done them in mid south, except we did them with actual commentators. We would throw back and forth, and you do generic interview with rapper outs. So what it became was, gene. Being in a. Studio, gene, would do the market specific stuff. Hey, a Lanta. We're going to be there. This Tuesday night at the Omni arena. Tickets are available here. Gene, would do those wrap arounds and then he would throw to talent. And they would do the same interview in that interview would air in every market that that match was pertinent. It wouldn't be specific to Atlanta. But gene stuff would. So it required gene coming to the studio and knocking all of that stuff out. And it was a lot. To Jean felt like a lot more work because he had to come to Stanford in reality. It was a lot less work for gene talent editors everybody. But it was just new and it was and it was different. And then vents counter was looking at it like God damn it. If he lived here would be a problem and that scare gene to death. He did not wanna live in Sanford. Hey did. Good point. Okay. Let's talk about wrestlemainia four this your first wrestlemania.

Well, yes, sir. And he's like got it. All right. See their kid and walked out of there. That was my production meeting with Jean ochre Lynn, and he was gone before. I realized what the fuck just happened and everything worked out perfectly. He did interviews. Let's talk about Sean Mooney. Sean Mooney is another guy that I really think about this era. The I mean to me it's maintain Sean Mooney from the announcer side. Sean tweeted out sad day in the world of entertainment, and for the fans of the great at the gene Oakland, as I've long said there was gene Oakland, and then there was the rest of us rest. Well, my friend has tagged goat. I mean, everybody's saying that everybody not just fans people who were in the business people who are, you know, his coworkers in that business.

And we were doing the first show in Harley in Doug in her back there the waiting on the Q, and I give them the Q and before I know it they went right through the middle of the screen, and we only had one. Thank God for gene, Oakland because Oakland, reacted Oakland. He he didn't live. He did it off the cuff Jesse. If you go back and watch Jesse didn't know what the hell the do because he was waiting for him to come around the corner and Oakland was savior and Jean being on the spot. Like that was you put him out there live, and I never really had to worry about gene VN out there live because he would be able to cover whatever was thrown at him and everybody came back yelling and screaming. But at the end of the day. Yes, it was a fuck up. They just misunderstood. They thought they were only gone through wants, which they were just a second show and it all worked out for the better. Because.

Gene, had a cocktail or shared a cocktail. He may have had a cocktail. He certainly shared a cocktail with many of the of the blue collar working people had no issues of that.
