Editor's Note: With Lance Russell's passing last week, we wanted to share this interview that he did with us back on June 24, 2010. 

Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez returns today with a very special show as we're joined by legendary wrestling announcer Lance Russell, nearing nearly fifty years in the wrestling business.

We talk the history of Memphis Wrestling, great angles, the amazing TV ratings they had, Jerry "The King" Lawler, Andy Kaufman, and so much more. Even though Lance is in his 80s, he sounds exactly the same and he sticks it out for a full 90 minutes.

This is a great, great show, so check it out~!
