We would first like to thank all the people in California and Iowa that helped us do our live shows there over the past two weeks. This week is a short week, as there will be live shows on Monday and Tuesday, with archive programming the rest of the week, while I am in Dallas for the U.S. Olympic Wrestling Team Trials at Reunion Arena, June 22-24. 

“No Holds Barred” can be heard every Monday through Friday, 3 to 6 PM New
York time (Eastern Time – US), only on eYada.com (http://www.eyada.com).
