WOR: Remembering Howard Finkel, Dr. Patel talks COVID-19 in sports

On a Friday Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and I remember WWE and Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame ring announcer Howard Finkel, who passed away on Thursday at 69.

Dave has fond memories of Howard announcing in Madison Square Garden, particularly from the mid 70s to the early 80s. Every time WWE would tour northern California, the two would always speak and he was one of the first subscribers to the Observer newsletter.

From there, it's the second WOR appearance with Dr. Alex Patel, a critical care doctor and wrestling fan from the Toronto, Canada, region. We talk about the latest on COVID-19 and its effect on MMA, pro wrestling, and the sports world in general.

FYI: Dr. Patel had to share space with his family during the interview and some of the background noise caused interference.
