Radio legend died today. Someone that had been around since before I was born, and was an icon of the radio! Sad, sad day, I just wish I had listened to him more, because every time I ever heard him, it wasn't enough. I hope those of you in other countries might have had the priviage to hear him, I'm sure that here on the web there will be posts of it, if so, please listen to him. http://news.aol.com/article/paul-harvey-dies/363141 http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=6982226&page=1

I've always loved listening to Paul Harvey. For a while he was on the noon news everyday here. His son sounds much like him also. Or it may be his nephew. He subbed for him now and then and was just as interesting. I couldn't get your link to work.

I hear that his son sounds a lot like him, and subbed for him, I wonder if he's going to take his place

I always enjoyed listening him. I especially enjoyed "The Rest of the story". He usually had the most interesting twist at the end. He was a great person and will be missed.

I agree, he did have a way to give a story a twist

I always liked the last of his talk when he would start talking about someone and at times I could figure out who he was talking about and other times I was in total shock to learn who he was talking about. I loved the way he would come back from a commercial and back to the rest of the story and the way he ended his show "Paul Harvey.....good day!!!!

He had a wonderful way of telling a story, really stood out in the rest of the noise and confusion of the world.

I did not watch TV yesterday and on the computer first thing this morning so I have not heard. I was not a regular listener but when he did come on the radio the station did not get changed. I did enjoy listening to him and his stories and the way they were delivered were excellent. I am glad he lived a long life and I am sure he will be missed. Like yourself I wished I had made more effort to listen more.

we can hope that perhaps his work was recorded and could be released as historical commentary - they were interesting and timely, but also timeless

He definitely was an icon. What a great legacy. I wonder who is Paul Harvey to the next generation. I can still hear him in my head and I hope that never goes away. "Good Day".

I know what you mean, he was the sort of person that I always kind of pictured living in the stories written by Fannie Flagg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fannie_Flagg

We have lost a fine man. I truly loved to hear him spin the stories he told. I loved when he would say "and now for the rest of the story!" I hope that is right. The end of the stories always had a twist and they were very memorable. He seemed to be able to always tell something that we did not realize even when we thought we knew the story. Mr. Harvey led a long productive life and he will be sorely missed.

One of the last of the greats. Who gave good news and "The rest of the story" I am sorry to hear of his passing and I wish nothing but peace to those who mourn him and the rest of the story. Rest In Peace.

I saw that flash across the TV screen earlier today and didn't catch all of the message. I thought that was what it said, but wasn't sure. That unmistakable voice and "the rest of the story" will be greatly missed.

The news of his passing has been all over the CBC for the past two days, but I must say that I had never heard of him before.

he was a very interesting person and i loved to hear his stories, although that wasnt very often. (the local radio story didnt seem to always carry his stories). anyways, i am a history fanatic and love to hear that sort of thing.

I agree, he was one of those people that you would just like to meet because he sounded so real, so dependable.

[b]Yes, I saw the announcement last light (or early this morning...? Hard night...difficult to tell). I always enjoyed Paul Harvey, & the world is a more bland place without him. He had such a wonderfully dry wit, & an unmistakable delivery of his news & observations. He also had a unique take on things that made people think about whatever he'd said, long after he said it. Goodbye, Paul. God rest your soul. "The likes of thee'll not pass this way again, for many a day." And more's the pity. And that's...the last of his story. Maggiepie[/b]

I loved Paul Harvey! I haven't listened to him near as much as I would have liked either but he was always interesting and clever.

sad? Paul Harvey was 90, he was loved during his time and was a genius at it (unless he had a satellite show i didnt find out about?) but things are much different now. I would compare John Tesh to him as they make great redio host and the torch has been passed. I will definately not forget him though I remember listening to him in between debbie gibson and paula abdul.

He was way before my time, but I really enjoyed listening to him on the radio. I found comfort in his voice because it sounded like my grandfather's. I am really going to miss his commentary. I am looking forward to the reruns though. I am glad that he was able to live such a long life. I would have liked to have known more about the things he has seen and done.
