4 Questions with Industry Pioneers
A video interview with Bingo Hauser, West Coast Amusements

In our efforts to chronicle the history of our industry, we could think of no better way to further this endeavor than to interview industry pioneers and preserve their videos for posterity. We have seen all too many industry veterans passing away these past several years without a chronicle of their past and we would like to capture as many memories as possible, especially from these pioneers in their own words.

We decided to ask each participant four questions:

1) How did you get into the business?

2) What is your greatest accomplishment?

3) What has been your biggest challenge?

4) How has the industry changed since you began your career?

The answers so far have been interesting and amusing, they open a window into the history of the business, where we have come from and where we might be going in the eyes of those who have been there.

Over the coming months and years, we will be interviewing more people, in both the fair and carnival industries and adding them to our pages. If you have suggestions about who we should interview or if you can put us in touch with an industry pioneer who would be willing to be interviewed by us, please email us with the information.

Our first interview is with Bingo Hauser of West Coast Amusements and we have several more, already completed, that we will be uploading soon. We hope you will enjoy this new feature of MCW!
