Paul Harvey

I have mixed feelings because he reported too often and too fast upon things he wasn't up on. But, Dad loved him so I post this RIP.

From USA Today:

Paul Harvey, the news commentator and talk-radio pioneer whose staccato style made him one of the nation's most familiar voices, died Saturday in Arizona, according to ABC Radio Networks. He was 90.

He was the uncle of the wife of probably the most influential spiritual advisers of my life so I'm even more conflicted.

I already miss the voice. I remember listening to it while travelling to or from vacations while trying to sleep under the rear window of my dad's Impala forty years ago.

I actually thought his "The rest of the story" feature (which I thought was broadcast on Saturdays?) was better than his news program.

Never heard his reporting, but did hear his rest of the story features on Bismarck radio.
