Paul always was a favorite of mine. " And that's the rest of the story."   
He was one of the greats.

What a guy. He outlasted just about everybody on the radio. He was like a Captain Kangaroo for adults. I still remember his story about the American Flag breaking John Wilkes Booth's leg after he shot Lincoln (true) - that was one of those "...and that's...the rest of the story."

RIP, Paul.

Some of my earliest memories listening to the radio were of Paul Harvey, his show used to be on here in NY at noon every day. I remember listening to him with my grandfather when I used to visit them. I also enjoyed his "Rest of the Story" program. throughout the years whenever I was traveling for business I would seek out his program, probably just to get a slice of home.

In recent months when I would catch his program he was noticeably absent, I figured age was finally catching up to him.  I caught a tribute to him the other day on NPR, it was very well done and brought back some warm memories.

I had thought I was alone in my enthusiasm for his program so I'm glad other Cafe members share similar sentiments regarding Mr. Harvey.

RIP

I remember going to work with my dad on Saturdays (I painted Oxygen tanks when I was younger for some spending money) and listening to Paul harvey on the radio during the ride. I'll never forget that. The car always smelled like Redman as the oldman was a big chewer. Had his styrofoam coffee cup to spit in and everything.

Anyways, did you realizie that just 8 years ago, ABC radio signed Harvey to a 10 year $100 million dollar contract? I'm sure they didnt figure they would have to pay it all, but I still think thats something.

I had no idea Paul was that old. I can remember my parents listening to him when I was very young so anytime I would hear him on the radio,
I would tune in for awhile. Going to miss listening to him. He has been on there all my life and I am sure before my life started.
Sorry to hear it is the rest of the story.
