  Today, we are introducing our exciting new Podcast feature, Amusement Warehouse Podcast. In the podcast, we will interview fair managers, carnival owners, park owners, entertainers and concessionaires. Each episode lasts about an hour, and we get into the business of the interviewee's various pursuits. In our first Podcast, we interview Phil Vivona of Amusements of America, the last surviving Vivona brother, one of the founders of the iconic company. Phil shares stories about the company's history and insight into how five brothers were able to work together and grow one of the most most recognizable carnival companies in the industry without breaking apart. Phil was very generous with his time, and as one of the oldest showmen still involved in the industry, he has a lot to share. From their start at the World's Fair in 1939 in NY through ventures into the US south and Canada, the Amusements of America story is truly a fascinating one. In the coming weeks, we will also feature ...   [read more]
