Radio Show #239 – Al Zippen and the End of the Melha Shrine Circus

After 64 proud and joyous seasons, the Melha Shrine Circus at the Big E, a Western Mass. tradition, fades into history.

Why the end of this annual event?

“Mr. Circus” himself, Melha Shrine’s Allen Zippen, gives us a peek inside the tent and some insight as to why this has happened.

Was it social media? PETA?

Al sheds light on this and more in this EXCLUSIVE program on Pioneer Valley Radio.
