    Dutch is back after a one week layoff due to having a fall minutes before the original recording time! And for a new year, we have a temporary new format. With the recent poll voted on by nearly 4,000 loyal Story Time listeners, we have decided to reduce the news segments and talk more about the old days. As a jumping off point, we are referring to Jeff Jarrett's recent podcast dedicated to Dutch Mantell and letting the Dirty Dutchman tell his side of the story on becoming Puerto Rico's top heel, various Memphis memories and more, as well as a tribute to Don West, Mandy Rose making a reported and refuted $1 million in the month of December and oh so much more. Enjoy!
