Thank you antenna TV!

I am watching Carson as well. This little magician caught my eye. I had to google him! To live to be 106 and to be as sharp as he was is amazing! What a blessed man he was. I grew up watching all these shows. Thank you ME TV!

I think you need to check your math. According to your article, Harmon was born in 1897 and lived until the age of 106. Yet you state that he died in 1993?? 1897+106 = 2003. Also, he stated on Carson, back in May 1983, that he was 96. I believe that was correct. That would mean he was born in 1887. 1887+106 = 1993.

Perfect cshangee!! I was just reading that article and going "What the....."..LOL. I was just trying to figure out how to message the author when I saw your post. I am watching Carson on Antenna TV!! LOVE the old shows and sometimes I have to look up people that were on there to find out whatever happened to them. Thanks for posting the clarification!!
