Re: Ben Hargett and Arch Harrison

Ben Hargett always made me smile, and greeted me with kindness every time our paths crossed.  Will always remember him.  Also, our dear Arch is in hospice at Westminster Canterbury where he has made his home the past few years.  He is in Room 26 second floor, go around back and enter through that door, taking left to elevators.  Reid and Ann were there on Friday night when I stopped by, and his parting words were, "See you in another time, another age."

Subject: [WJMA] Ben Hargett

Ben Hargett died last Monday. For many, many years he was the voice
of a series of Mason Insurance Agency commercials that ran in the
first commercial break of the noon news. I'm sorry to say that to the
best of my knowledge, none of those commercials still exist.

Ben also helped out on a number of occasions on high school baseball
broadcasts. If I recall correctly he was a pitching prospect in the
St Louis Cardinals farm system.

He was always an enthusiastic supporter of WJMA.
