G.L.O.W. Diary 12

Monday, Week 4, March 1983

At the last minute, Matilda reminded me of her contract stipulation that gave her a title match. Grudgingly, I put her and Emily in the pre-show. If nothing else, it would get the crowd on their feet.

We had 383 people in attendance at the Mayan Theater.

Tuesday, Week 4, March 1983

Jackie wanted to talk to me before the meeting.

"The Mayan Theater is too expensive, Joel. We don't even fill half of it and it costs us $1000 each week. We need to cut spending."

"Okay, fine. There's only one place suitable for us then - the Hollywood-Los Feliz JCC."

"Also, don't forget our hour long shows starting in May."

Crud. She just told me to cut costs, then told me I'd have to use twice as many people. Maybe there was a way out.

"Jackie, we don't have a PPV carrier anymore. I'm not sure it will be affordable to have a large event without it."

"You're right. I'll see what I can do about that."

There was something else nagging me, but I couldn't put my finger on it.
