Swansong of the Rocketman

Larry Smith, my former editor at P.O.V., and creator of the wonderful SMITH Magazine, has just come back from the world’s first Rocketbelt Convention in Niagra, NY. While there, he got this video of Harold Graham, the original Rocketman, strumming a Uke and singing wistfully of his “Rocketbelt Daze.”

[BTW: Larry was also the writer who did the piece for Popular Science on Rocketbelt Man, the builder from Mexico, that we covered a while back.]
