Paul Harvey, R.I.P.

By admin Published: February 28, 2009

The radio legend has died. One report here. His web site, here, has his photo posted with a concise "Paul Harvey 1918-2009." I've gotten the occasional note from readers asking why he hadn't been heard in some time, but could never get an answer from his publicist. Still, it was evident that the death of his beloved wife last year was devastating.

He was a comforting radio voice, with an easily imitated (and parodied) style, a conservative tilt and a knack for keeping you listening. I could be hooked into "The Rest of the Story" even when I had figured out the subject, just to hear how it was set up. I interviewed him many years ago when he put a record of different audio essays, but I don't remember much about the talk, other than that it was pleasant.
