Harry Rodcay was one of the few artists who were a native of America's 50th state, Hawaii. He grew up on a ranch and well, like any type of cowboy in those days, he would often find himself entertaining the other ranch hands after the long day's work was done.
He started at radio station WARL out of Arlington, Virginia. Worked at the Bismarck Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. He did guest shots on the WSM Grand Ole Opry. For two years, he entertained the US troops in the Far East as part of the Special Services Road Shows. Around 1954 or so, Harry signed on with Cliffie Stone and became a part of the long running popular show the "Hometown Jamboree".
