where you can find out more about my musical career
did you get a break in the wrestling business?
actually started webcasting music in 1996 on a show
I started on FM radio in Boston in 1980 called The
Mighty Music Machine.
in 1998 Steven Marx the lawyer for the RIAA (Recording
Industry Of America www.riaa.com
) contacted me and told me to stop webcasting music.
He was the lawyer who later beat Napster
into the ground. This hurt me deeply because for 35
years music was my life and now it seemed to turn
So I turned to wrestling and started webcasting wrestling
events. I've been a wrestling fan since 1974.
are your aims and objectives?
simple objective...to have fun !!!
have been the highlights of your career?
of my wrestling career include meeting great wrestlers.
yesterday I spent the day with Road Warrior Animal,
Greg The Hammer Valentine, Brutus The Barber Beefcake,
Ox Baker, Ted Dibiase and The Barbarian.
of the most friendly bunch of guys you would ever
want to meet. We all had a ball together just hanging

is no profit involved in PWTV
we do it as a free public service or a hobby if you
most popular part of our website is the live webcast
on Monday Nights. It's the high tech thing, the kids
have been your biggest supporters?
biggest supporters have been the wrestlers themselves.
have never been turned down for a promo or interview.
These guys realize the power of networking together.
In fact, Animal asked me if it would be ok to put
the PWTV link at his website... I said yes of course.
us about the interesting dealings you have had with
the WWE / WWF?
sort of anticipated this question.
have caused two memos to slip by the desks of Vince
and Linda McMahon in the past few years.
One was when we were told not to play any more WWF,
WWE and WCW videos by the WWE lawyers in New York
other was when a WWF promoter threatened to break
every bone in my body if I appeared at a certain WWF
event. Things were worked out and we
are now in good standing with the WWE.
sense of accomplishment, having fun and being creative..
The fact that at the end of every Monday night after
our webcast we feel we have given something to the
wrestling fans and gave it to them for free. It makes
you feel good.
I retired from music I needed something to release
my creative juices and this is it. I have a video
studio & lab at my home and all the webcasts are
done from here.
do you decide who you will do business with?
have a very open minded policy here. ( not like the
WWE...) We do business with everyone there are no
closed doors here at PWTV.
are your current projects?
are working on a deal at present with NWA/TNA to bring
their weekly TV show to the internet at our website.
is an exclusive for you Greg because we have not told
anyone about this deal yet as it is still being worked
do you know about wresting in Australia?
know The Fabulous Kangaroos were the guys who invented
tag team wrestling. Al Costello was my favorite.
else should we know about you and your operation?
we are a free public service promotional webcast which
means we do it as a labor of love. We pay all the
bills ourselves. Maybe some day down the road we will
make some money on our website but for now we enjoy
what we are doing.
almost Un-American doesn't it ??? It shows you that
not all Americans are capitalistic.
that's a few questions that come to mind.
says...Thanks Greg it's been a real pleasure. If you
need anything else I am at your service buddy. And
Hey...Thanks for watching PWTV and thanks to all the
wrestling fans down under. Someday I hope to visit
your great country,
note: What a heck of a nice guy, that has done a great
deal in this musical and wrestling media career. We
look forward to more updates from DJ Sterling.
