Also excluding the Mid South/USWA (Memphis) live broadcasts, WWF Madison Square Gardens, NESN Boston Garden, Spectrum Wrestling. Because they were obviously the historical/typical live broadcast.

Ya I know I'm eliminating alot. But looking for earliest known live broadcast (nothing taped).

NWA's First Clash 3/27/88. Did Florida have live and others.

The new/modern live broadcast where mostly wrestling was taped. I was wondering before Nitro and PPV if/whem NWA territories or anyone else broadcasted live.

Yes you are right - end of June 1986 shown from San Francisco. I think that one was shown live - although it started at 8pm eastern time, so maybe it was from a few days before.

I believe you're correct.  I think it was actually live every week, at least 60-90 minutes of it.

 It happend in Minneapolis and St. Paul in the early 50's. The first 60 minutes of the show was shown on live local t.v..

 I know in the 30's the shows were covered live on radio in the Twin Cities.
