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!

POSTERS: CLOWNS,,,,IN MEMORY OF DIME & CONNIE WILSON

One of the most vivid memories of my career in the circus was spec on the Paul Kaye's Kaye Continental Circus, for the pay off music Jack Certvone used "BE A CLOWN", & every show I would watch "Flo" White, who on the first note would absolutely explode with energy.
