Blinko and Flo

Two perfect examples of the rapidly vanishing/nearly extinct classic American whiteface circus clown: Ernie "Blinko" Burch and Albert "Flo" White on the Ringling show in the 50s.

I seem to tell this story every time I see a photo of "Flo", but one of the greatest memories of my career was watching him in spec. The clowns were the last thing, and the payoff music was, "Be A Clown", at the downbeat Flo,literally exploded with energy. I miss both of these great personalities!!!!
