If you are not familiar with Harry Turner then you must not know about Carolina Beach Music as Harry is Mister Beach Music. Google his name and Carolina Beach Music, another genre of America’s Music.
I believe I first met Harry when he was deejaying one of our church singles’s dances. As you may remember I probably hold the record for the SHORTEST career deejaying!
Harry did more than spin the records – he told the STORIES behind the singer or group. I loved it as I LOVE a good STORY. So I decided to introduce myself to Harry and we have been close friends now for over 25 years!
Harry had been a deejay in Spartanburg, South Carolina and lifetime fanatic of Carolina Beach Music. He also was a promoter of the music and is still today. He is the author of This Magic Moment that you can find in our bookstore. I was his publicist for the unveiling of the book, which is now being considered as a film.
Harry is one of the co-founders of my 23 year project – The Southern Music Hall of Fame & Museum Inc. This will be thoroughly discussed beginning with the next post.
