Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

Just curious, is Ervin Hall any relation to Bert Hall who was a saxophone player on the Hamid Morton circus along with Mickey Blasi the Drummer.? There also was a Ervin Hall that was in the Whiz Kids bike act. (Mother Aurila)
Great photo of Joanne and Mr. Hamid Jr.

Mickey Blasi???? There's a name I haven't heard for a while, you go back a while don't you. This Ervin is an ex "Whiz Kid", he now has an act with Baboons, a Dog Act & clowns. His sister Carmen has a great act with large baboons, & brother Jimmy has one of the best Bear Acts around.

Bill and Trudy,
Please have Joanne tell Ervin, I said hello. I haven't seen him in years since we all went belly up in Detroit working for a producer who is no longer with us. That was the last time I worked my tigers.

Bill, Could you have Joanne say hello to Peter and Ervin. I saw Peter at our Shrine date last year. I haven't seen Ervin since we worked on The Billy Martin Cole All Star Circus. He looks like he is doing ok. Bill Galloway, Rochester,NY
