Wrestling with Lin Brehmer

As I have written many times, you never know what you will see at a Resistance Pro Wrestling show, but it will always be great.  Such was the case when I the legendary Lin Brehmer of WXRT.
Brehmer's career with WXRT began in 1984.  Almost thirty years later, Brehmer is still entertaining WXRT listeners.
Brehmer is simply a nice guy, too.  At the R Pro event, I hoped for a quick picture and he hopped off the stage to make it a nicer picture.  I asked for a quick minute for an interview and he gave us a nice chunk of time, certainly more than we imagined.  We talked Chicago, music, wrestling and more.  As my friend Chuck would say, "He is a true Renaissance man."
It was one of the many great experiences I have had at R Pro.  I doubt I ever would have met Brehmer otherwise.  This meeting remains one of the coolest celebrity encounters I have ever had.
