Manny Centeno Says Hurricane Harry Will be Missed

Dear Source,
I just read the sad news of the passing of my good friend Hurricane Harry. I was shocked to hear about his death because I really believed that Harry would be with us for an eternity! His energy and commitment to the study of Jazz (and wine!) was contagious. On many nights I "ran the board" for Harry while he broadcast Jazz Quest live on WTBN and remember us having a great time together. While the music was playing, we discussed (actually, he discussed) little known facts about the bands and musicians.
In fact, Harry was so excited about producing his show that he built himself a professional recording studio at home to pre-record it. I don't know of anyone in their mid-seventies who would build their own recording studio, and also teach themselves how to use highly advanced computerized editing equipment. Harry was up to the task as evidenced by the quality of his recorded Jazz Quest shows on WSTA and WOSO.
I will miss Hurricane Harry for his ENERGY and for teaching me that it is important to stay positive and "do what you love doing." Above all, I will miss him for his sincere friendship.
