Read about Harry:

Harry Jarkey was a Detroit TV host in the late 1950s and an entertainer 
at venues like the the Roostertail and Elmwood Casino in Windsor.
He was a summer fixture at the Wenona Beach Casino in
Bay City, MI for nearly 30 years.
He retired in 1975 and moved to Palm Desert CA.
Below is an interview with him at his home
conducted on Feb 6, 2010 by Michael Collins
a former Detroit newsanchor and videotaped by me, Eileen.
Harry was 97 years young on that day,
and was thrilled that we came to talk to him about his long career.
He was one of the sweetest men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing
and will be deeply missed.
He would have been 101 this August.
