Rest In Peace H. Lee Brown

We're all saddened by the loss of an absolute icon in the Beach Music community. H. Lee Brown passed away Thursday night November 24, 2016. We had the privilege to create 25 episodes of "Where It All Began hosted by H. Lee. Getting to learn about the history of our industry from his experiences and perspective was indeed a treat. He will by missed by the thousands of friends he made over the years. H. Lee never met a stranger, and is likely the most photographed person in the history of Carolina Beach Music. The walls of the O.D. Pavilion are covered  with photos of H. Lee posing with his many friends. 

Rest In Peace, H. Lee. Your words "If it weren't for you, there wouldn't be me" will be remembered for decades to come, because if it weren't for you, there would have been far fewer memories for all to share. God speed!
