R.I.P. Scott Epstein by Evan Ginzburg


When wrestling agent, indy manager and Pastor Bobby Riedel Instant Messaged me this morning, “Did you hear the news?” I braced myself.

For anyone involved as long and heavily as myself in the often grim world of pro wrestling knew exactly what was coming next.

Picking up the phone, I guessed at which one of our heroes had left us too soon. For weren’t there 200 or so wrestlers who had died before the age of 50 from the “Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll” wrestling lifestyle?

Clutching the phone I immediately said, “Who died?” without even bothering with the obligatory “hello.”

“Scott Epstein,” he said.

“No!” I shrieked, leaning against the living room wall as my wife looked on in concern.

“Is it an Internet rumor?” I hoped against hope.

“Confirmed” Bobby said with the finality I dreaded.

“He just called me the other week,” I responded robotically. “He wanted to catch up and grab some dinner one night.” I felt an odd sense of guilt- almost like I was in confession with the wrestling Pastor. Sadly, we never did have that final meal together as my elderly mom has been in and out of the hospital.

Scott Epstein. Former teacher and Assistant Principal. Publicist. Promoter. Writer. Publisher. Photographer. Camp counselor. Vendor. Agent. Occasional indy wrestling manager. And whatever other gigs this ever-hustling, oh-so colorful “character” could squeeze in. And like the wrestlers themselves he was larger than life with that shaved head, huge moustache, and energy that kids half his age couldn’t touch.

I tried to wrap my head around the news. He’d survived heart surgery and Super Storm Sandy, and somehow a late night ride did THIS? The vehicle with the Macho Man plates? It had been an accident. Earlier today. His car hit a tree. Just like that. How many conventions and wrestling functions had I been in that vehicle travelling down those very same roads with him? How many diners and roadside dumps had we eaten in on the way home from generally meaningless Indy cards we loved to be around? We’d drive up and down those highways talking all the way, reliving both the magic and absurdity of whatever we’d just experienced in this often surreal world of pro wrestling.

And whether we made a few bucks or lost a few, he was already onto the next adventure. “I’m booked next weekend,” he’d say like a kid in a candy store.

On some of the gigs we’d share a room, and I’d wake from a deep sleep and Scott would be frantically typing on his laptop. Hey, he had something to promote. To plug. E-mails to answer. Bookings to lock in. The man was tireless.

He was an older guy in a young man’s game and few could touch him, running to cards around the country, booking his beloved talent, and never losing enthusiasm for his end of “the business.”

And how many legends and industry giants had I met through him over the years? How many times did I get butterflies in my stomach finally meeting a childhood hero like his close friend, SuperStar Graham. Then there was Tony Atlas. Putski. Jay Lethal who he had a special connection with. Various divas. And a good chunk of the TNA roster.

And they all had a deep love and respect for that seemingly rarest of creatures- the honest wrestling agent.

Scott Epstein. Dead. Horribly, suddenly, unbelievably, DEAD.

You know, in the agent business you get used to bounced checks, last minute cancellations, and standing your ground to get your talent paid. Hey, the promoter “had a slow night.” But Scott Epstein, I can proudly say is the ONLY man I ever gave a bunch of merchandise to on consignment. And like the “mensch” he was, he ultimately paid me for those “gimmicks.”

The outpouring of love on his birthday the other day, and now upon this most tragic of news, attests to a life well lived- and oh so colorfully at that.

Scott, we had some great nights, we had a few bad ones, and this sure feels like you’re just on another of your countless road trips. But know that I always loved and respected you. And we sure had a hell of a lot of fun along the way.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Rufus performing a show with Sly Stone was a great idea.
Only it didn’t work.
Not at all.
The 8PM show started at 9:15. Standing in place for an over an hour in a hot, crowded setting, watching an agitated pair nearly come to blows, various thoughts ran through my head. “If they can’t give you a seat for $45, can’t a world class venue at least turn the air conditioning up?”  And, “Can’t they afford an opening band?”  But most troubling was, “There must be a problem with Sly.”
And there was.
Coming out an hour plus into what had been a kick-ass old school R&B show with Rufus sounding ulta- tight, Sly looked  like E.T.  Sporting a huge blonde (apparent) wig, he spoke in a low, gravelly, virtually inaudible voice.  Rambling about race, he sprinkled the N-Word, but was pretty much beyond comprehension.  Tinkering with his keyboards, which just wouldn’t work, he was amused at first, but grew more frustrated and agitated as he wasn’t getting much sound on it. A sound guy, looking like a deer in headlights, kept coming out to try to help, as did Rufus’ keyboardist.
Sly had 3 audience members come out to sing as he couldn’t. “I can’t hit the high notes. I need tricks,” he said sadly. An Asian girl looked moved to tears to be up there with her idol, singing far better than he could at age 70.
I also felt almost moved to tears watching this pathetic spectacle.
Keyboards were replaced, nothing much happened, and Sly rambled some more with much of it inaudible. Growing more and more frustrated and angry, he finally after two failed attempts at his songs announced, “Let’s come back in 5 minutes after we fix this shit.”
Rufus kept playing in spite of it, finally called for that much needed tech break.  Seventy or so percent of the placed cleared out in spite of Sly announcing he’d be back, and nobody seemed to “fix that shit.”
Finally Rufus returned, jammed on a Sly hit, waiting for a Sly sighting. Only he was nowhere to be seen. They jammed, glancing backstage, jammed some more, glancing backstage, and finally in frustration said, “That’s all.” Yes, there was a Sly Stone classic being performed with Sly in the building but not on stage for a single moment of it.
The final tally was Sly on stage for two disastrous songs and a quick exit.
This fiasco was even sadder, because Rufus by themselves would have been a GREAT R&B show minus the delays, distractions and the disappointment of seeing Sly in this state. That a classy venue had tech difficulties of this magnitude made it even worse. And starting a show an hour fifteen late is unconscionable as well, with hundred of great NYC musicians who would have been honored to open for an icon and would have played for chump change.
I would tell you in a second to go see Rufus any day of the week. I actually felt sorry for them to have been victimized by this. The audience loved THEM. That the crowd walked out dejected, depressed and disappointed after a performance as great as theirs was truly unfair to them.
And as a lifelong Sly Stone fan, I walked out shaking my head, deeply saddened the entire endless train ride home. For his wasn’t a performance. It was an anti-drug public service announcement.
The fiasco we witnessed was truly, memorably, tragic.

My Mentor- Fred Geobold by Evan Ginzburg

MY MENTOR By: Evan Ginzburg  

Fred Geobold was the richest man I’ve ever known.
And I don’t think he ever broke 25K.
The receptionist and switchboard operator at 50,000 Watt WBAI-FM, 99.5 in NYC, he was also an on-air radio host, folk singer, songwriter, concert MC, and championed untold numbers of musicians during his twenty plus year career.
A short fellow, with a beer belly, long beautiful red hair, and a big, bushy moustache to go with it, Fred Geobold was born Fred Kuhn in Shelbyville, Indiana in 1944. He was legally blind and there was more than one occasion where he’d hit the wrong button during an on-air Broadcast, and calmly proclaim, “We have dead air.”
He was ever so calm.
Fred was never happier than when he was on air or just sitting around cavernous WBAI talking politics with the other ancient radio folk who seemed to live at the studio. “Let’s make some radio,” he’d always say passionately before one of his thousands of broadcasts.
I met him through my involvement in the pro wrestling world. He grew up on The Bruiser, Crusher, and Verne Gagne in the Mid-West, and loved my primitive looking nostalgic grappling zine, Wrestling- Then & Now. Inviting me to do a five minute wrestling update segment on his Arts program, Light Show, which was heard 3-5AM Friday night/Saturday mornings, I readily agreed. Imagine thousands of folk listening to me? In 1991 it was a heady feeling for someone who had just started as an Adult Education teacher after leaving the elementary classroom. I was still trying to “find myself,” and I had suddenly become a very small part of a world famous, politically powerful station. We’d often pre-tape in studio because of the insane hour, and I’d occasionally do it live on air over the phone. But like clockwork it was heard each and every week, and it was always amazing to get reaction to it from those graveyard shift workers and late night revelers. I became hooked on radio and ultimately braved the question to him, “Can I do more?”
Fred, who was never anything but supportive to anyone he ever met, of course gave me the green light and basically carte blanche.
I soon incorporated the Arts into my segment and ultimately expanded to booking artists live on air, so I was now live in studio. Getting on that 2AM subway in Queens always felt eerie as it was nearly vacant going into Manhattan. At 2:45 I’d look at the sole human being in the car besides me and wonder, “Is he going to kill me?” Then I realized he was probably thinking the exact same thing.
Approaching the old WBAI studio at 505 Eight Avenue, there’d be the familiar crew of homeless right outside our door. Either amiably drunk or “sleeping one off,” they were never once a bother. Night manager Max Schmid, with his endless pony tail, would let me into the building and he’d escort me onto the ancient, creaky elevator reminiscent of something out of a silent movie. And you’d never know what to expect once you’d get out of it.
Staggering into the station bleary-eyed, I’d inevitably be jolted by an adrenaline rush caused by the alternate reality I had just been dropped into. For here was a waiting room full of musicians, performance artists, authors, and even larger-than-life professional wrestlers. 
It was like a Fellini movie. 
While most of the world slept, I was ever so grateful to be right here.
In the middle of this delightful chaos would be a bemused, smiling Fred Geobold. Carrying too many CDs for his hands to hold, he'd rush into the studio at 2:59 and change. Somehow he'd squeeze into every nook and cranny a multitude of instruments as well as the excited musicians who lugged them in. For many of them it would be their first time on the air.
"Let's make some radio," he'd say, contentment written on his face.
And for so many, many years we did just that. "You're listening to a Light Show," Fred would announce in that sweet voice so perfect for the airwaves.
He described radio as “making something out of nothing.” A blank canvas if you will. And I spent some of the best nights of my life with Fred Geobold at WBAI painting that canvas. Although an old “folkie,” he was open to absolutely anything. We had everyone from metal bands to rapper, Profecy, who worked only in Spanish. We didn’t know what the heck he was saying, but it sure sounded-and felt-wonderful.
Exhilarated after a broadcast, we'd unwind with our colorful guests and just talk. Of course, with the incredibly well-rounded Fred, you could discuss literally anything.
And with those conversations always came laughter
But it sure wasn’t funny when Fred came down with prostate and bone cancer in 2003. Yet he was so incredibly nonchalant about it, so fearlessly uncomplaining, that I just assumed he’d pull through. But suddenly his shock of hair was thinning and eventually almost gone. And there were weeks at a time that he was out sick as well, and I’d be at the helm of the show with two other co-hosts.
As our beloved Fred began to fail and lay in hospice care, I booked an on-air tribute to him. For two hours musician after musician sang, and our fellow radio hosts came in to express their love. Even station execs put aside their differences for a change and stood in unity in their love for Fred.
The show was burned onto a CD for me and I rushed out to the hospital to play it for him. A fellow DJ was already there gently strumming a guitar and shot me a look that clearly read, “It isn’t good.” And one glace at an incredibly frail, bed-ridden Fred and I realized just that without her needing to say a word. He had that very same “look” my own Dad did at the end.
I played the CD for him. In and out of consciousness, he listened to the glowing tributes and kept repeating, “That’s lovely…that’s lovely.”
It was like he was hearing his own memorial service. I excused myself. Sitting in the bathroom, I cried my eyes out.
I said what I feared would be my final goodbye as he weakly shook my hand. “You take care of yourself, Fred. Thank you for everything. Thank you...”
Drained, I walked out in a fog and called the station, encouraging them to get down there immediately. “He doesn’t have long,” I exclaimed with urgency in my voice.
He was gone the very next day.
So now there was one final “show” to do. I organized the entertainment portion of his memorial service. Calling all of his favorite musicians, not a single one said no.
The old, Greenwich Village church didn’t have an empty seat that night. There had to be at least 300 people packed in there.
For some odd reason, it occurred to me that I don’t think I ever saw Fred when he didn’t have a T-shirt on. I doubt he owned a decent pair of clothes because it just didn’t matter to him. He certainly didn’t have pricy jewelry or a car, and lived modestly alone in a tiny apartment after his roller derby queen girlfriend left. I’d venture a guess he probably didn’t have a lot saved, either.
But a thought suddenly dawned on me as I stood at that podium looking out at the throngs of people who had come here to honor their lost comrade.
Fred Geobold was truly the most successful man I’d ever met.
One by one the musicians sang not only their songs but Fred’s praises. All were so very grateful for the support he had given them.
I even had a massive 300 plus pound masked wrestler, The Mambo King, pay tribute while in full ring regalia. Hey, Fred was a warm, funny, sensitive guy, but he sure treasured his steel-cage matches.
He would have loved this.
In a weird way the memorial felt like another gig. It took the longest time for it to sink in that I’d never, ever see the guy again.
During Fred’s illness we had moved to a 2PM Wednesday time slot. Little did I know that our “reward” for all the time spent in the middle of the night would be the beginning of the end for me at WBAI. We suddenly heard murmurs that we weren’t raising enough funds. “Others” deserved a slot at this time. Relatives and friends of the execs wanted a piece of the pie. We went from every week to three times a month. And one day after 16 years on the show, I was called into “the office” and told my voice wasn’t as professional as my colleagues, that I didn’t engineer, that another on air host had spent more time attending station meetings and such and deserved the show “because she was a woman.”
But I knew it was really all about being in the middle of the dial, middle of the day. The slot had become prime real estate. For our “listener supported, non-commercial radio,” the power play felt disgracefully “Wall Street” to me. Ironically, and probably fittingly, that was right where the station had moved to. Fred would have been appalled at the apathy that my “firing” was met with there.
A mere couple of weeks later I started my own Net radio show, Legends Radio, and haven’t looked back since. And with the show and my club bookings, I’ve tried to champion artists that few others have.
Fred Geobold was more than my radio mentor He was also a dear friend. We'd go to clubs and listen to the music he loved so much, promote and host gigs together, and even hit the wrestling shows.
I loved Fred Geobold. And always will.
When I look back at my now fifty plus years on this planet, I realize that meeting him was one of the greatest blessings I’ve ever had.
I may never be the radio man Fred was with that soothing voice of his, but he sure taught me how to “make something out of nothing.”
Every time I’m on air, he’s still there with me somehow.
So as you used to say after each and every broadcast, Fred, “Stay tuned.”
Yes, stay tuned.
