Paul Harvey lives (and still broadcasts)

On the drive to work this morning I accidentally switched the radio to AM, and was immediately sucked into a time warp. Paul Harvey's voice, a little wavery but undeniably him, came through loud and clear. I had no idea he was still broadcasting. I don't think I've heard him since I was in my teens.

Interesting show he does. The blend of news, commentary, and folksy charm is so unlike media of today.

You can hear him on the Net.

I believe he remains the most syndicated show on radio.

He certainly is the most syndicated show historically.

I have very positive associations with The Rest of the Story. Definitely a midwest kid thing.

I heard him doing some political commentary that I was not as fond of.

I've thought more about Paul Harvey this month than I have in years! I heard this story on npr a couple of weeks ago, and when I read your post, I thought you might find this interesting...
