Earlier this week, WMC Action News 5 announced that Dave Brown will retire as Chief Meteorologist on August 31st, 2015. Dave served the Mid-South as Chief Meteorologist since 1977. To say he will be missed would be an understatement.
As good of a weatherman as Dave was, many would argue that he was an even better wrestling announcer. Dave hosted Memphis Wrestling from 1967 to 2002. For 25 of those years, he co-hosted with the legendary Lance Russell. Many have called this duo the greatest broadcast team of all time.
For this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s take you back to “Memphis Wrestling Memories” with both Lance and Dave. WMC aired this special just last year (2014) – but Lance and Dave talk us thru many great Memphis Wrestling classics.
Lance Russell will join us on Cerrito Live this Saturday to discuss Dave’s retirement. I’m sure Lance will have a few stories to share about Dave Brown “The Weather Clown”, as well. Along with Lance, Joe Cronin will join us to breakdown this Sunday’s WWE Summer Slam.
Oman Arena, Jackson, TN: Catch Lance & Dave together on Saturday October 24th at Oman Arena. Also scheduled for the Main Event – Jerry Lawler vs Terry Funk. For more info, click here.
