 A Quintessential American Radio Commentator

September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009

I was again reminded of the amazing talent of Paul Harvey during a NFL Super Bowl XLVII commercial a few weeks ago. In 1978, Mr. Havey gave a “So God Made a Farmer”  speech at the National Future Farmers of America Convention. At this year’s Super Bowl part of that speech was included in the Dodge Ram’s commercial. (www.paulharvey.com) Paul Harvey Jr. suggested that “it appears Dad has been eager to return to the microphone”.

I always looked forward to Paul Harvey’s nationally syndicated radio news program that began with “Hello, America. This is Paul Harvey. Stand by … for news.” In addition to news, “The Rest of the Story” was another staple of his broadcasts. Each amusing story had a unique twist. The following books are available at RRPL: Paul Harvey For What it’s Worth, Paul Harvey’s the Rest of the Story, and More of Paul Harvey’s the Rest of the Story.

Enjoy!
