This picture of the legendary Howard Cosell was taken 33 years ago, in 1980, during a boxing match at the Concord Pavilion.

It was taken by our friend Mike “Radar” Dunn.

Cosell was about 62 years old at the time of this picture, and “Radar” was 26.

See, it’s excellent photos like this that prove, while Radar may be gone, he, and more importantly, his role in capturing history, will never be forgotten.

Not the Pavilion, poor parking lot lighting, over priced food and drinks, piss poor maintenance, over priced.

“Look at that little monkey run!”

I still can’t figure out why he said it like that.

This place is run down and no one seems to care. Since live Nations owns this can’t the city make them clean it up?

Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!
