SISTERHOOD OF THE SQUARED CIRCLE: The History of Women’s Wrestling

Pat Laprade joined CJLO 1690AM for a 2-part interview on the June 7th and June 14th editions of Main Event Radio with Ryan Rider. His latest book is entitled “Sisterhood of the Squared Circle: The History of Women’s Wrestling” and is now available wherever books are sold. We discussed the history of ladies wrestling from the earliest days of Billy Wolfe and Mildred Burke to Fabulous Moolah’s stranglehold on the industry in the 1960’s-1980’s to the modern day women’s wrestling revolution.

Chris Cornell (1964-2017)

Having been the frontman of one of Seattle’s most well-known rock bands, frontman of the second band in history to perform live in Cuba, and named as one of the godfathers of the grunge genre, Chris Cornell was a rare, unique, and special act in the rock & roll/grunge scene. In 1984, Cornell had formed the band Soundgarden back in his hometown Seattle with his friend Kim Thayil, who took role as the guitarist, Hiro Yamamoto, who took role as the bassist (but was later replaced by current bassist Ben Shepherd), and Cornell himself taking the roles of drummer and vocalist.

OBEY Convention X: Go East

Recently, I have spoken with individuals who, perhaps to my undeserved surprise, have never ventured to the Eastern edge—who have never set foot in Nova Scotia despite enticing tales of slackened lifestyles, dramatic landscapes, majestic sea creatures, and kindly leprechauns. This May, there is a more of a reason than ever to go the distance and explore the mysterious Maritimes firsthand—OBEY Convention X, one of the most forward thinking arts festivals in Canada, is celebrating its tenth year of being.

What's Up With the Habs?

April 3rd seems like it was yesterday. On this day, I was sitting fifth row at the BB&T center in Sunrise Florida. The Montréal Canadiens won the game 4-1 and they looked big, strong, and very fast disposing of the Florida Panthers. Maybe because I was in a condo next to the beach, but I did not even watch the remaining five games of the season because I thought to myself, win or lose, we are facing the New York Rangers in the first round and most likely beat them too… in five games!
