I'm really confused about something here. Sometime in the spring of 1959 until around Dec 1960, CWC lost control of shows at Madison Square Garden.

Another group run by Jack Pfefer, Pedro Martinez & Kola Kwariani was running MSG. Some results on other websites say Pfefer shows, others say CWC. They seem to be using most of the same talent....

Can anyone explain this to me?

Ok. But if there were two different companies running shows, why does this list here say they are all CWC shows?

Because the results were done BEFORE that new information became available through the tremendous research from Tim Hornbaker. With all my other projects going on, I haven't had time to post the major updates and additions. Sorry.

It baffles me how a major city like Philadelphia can have so many incomplete cards listed.
