It's always great to see images and learn about shows we're not very familiar with.Keep it up, Buckles.

Did Art Concello buy the show

from the Webbs or did he frame

another version of Russell Bros

I have a few program sheets

from 44 that shows many familiar

names of management & performers

including Clyde Beatty

Chic Silber said...

Frank McClosky as manager

Roland Butler & Bill Antes

Robert Reynods & V Barbette

George Werner & Henry Kyes

Orrin Davenport & Mac MacDonald

Quite an impressive team

Chic Silber said...

I had opportunity to

know several of these

Bob Reynolds was the

General Superintendant

& George "Pops" Werner

was Boss Canvas on the

Beatty Show early 60s

Frank McClosky was the

lead of the 3 partners

& obviously Clyde Beatty

Gone but not forgotten

Sincerest thanks to Buckles and his indispensable blog, and to Mrs. Barbara Woodcock for being so generous with her time and her wonderful memories.
If anyone would like to buy their own copy of The Russell Brothers Scrapbook, please email us at

I think there was an article in the Bandwagon that Art went in though the back door and came out the front and told the Webbs he would give them so much and the took it.
And he made money every year he had it.
