Default Anybody remember Paul Harvey

I can remember listening to his news broadcasts but always looked forward to “The rest of the story”. He was pretty insightful for his time. I came across this tidbit this morning and thought I’d share.

Listened to him every day at lunchtime when I was building houses. We would take our lunch break right when he came on the radio.

Probably the reason I never smoked dope
Quit stealing a cans of cope from 7-11 when I was young and dumb and he even mentioned a christmas UFO event in NM I witnessed with my own eyes. His stuff was always worth hearing

I used to listen to the "Rest of the Story" on WBAP 820 am radio just before Mark Holtz and Eric Nadel would call the Ranger's games.

I still remember listening to the games on my radio while laying on my bedroom floor and throwing a baseball up in the air and catching it in my glove all game long!

I wish they would convert all his shows into podcasts. Instead it seems like they’re just locked away not being played

There are quite a few of his real “gems” on the you tube but I agree, his “rest of the story” stories should be made available to enjoy again. He was certainly a one of a kind broadcaster.

Same here. I would listen to WBAP back in the day at lunch on my pickup radio. News was over at 12:15 and Paul came on. The Rest of the Story aired on the weekends. He was great !

My favorite Paul Harvey speeches were his “So God Made a Farmer” speech and his “If I Were The Devil”

Someone needs to share "If I Were the Devil" over mainstream media so that these uniformed/lunatic liberals gain an understanding where they are leading us.....though I'm sure they would just protest it and claim religion is being forced upon them.

AMEN!!! Should be required listening for children growing up in today’s world as well.
Amazing that talk was done in the 60’s and everything he foretold has come to pass.
