Joe Mitchell just posted this up on the YoYoRadio Facebook page, and it’s well worth a listen.
Who was Harvey Lowe? He was the world’s first yo-yo champion, winning the 1934 world title in London, where the Canadian born Lowe was chilling with Edward VIII of the United Kingdom, Fats Waller, and Laurel and Hardy. He spent most of World War II in a concentration camp in China, came back to Canada and become a radio broadcaster. He also taught Julie Christie how to smoke opium for a movie role. To find out more about Harvey, listen to this interview we did with him back in 2005.
