Fascinating short radio clip done by Paul Harvey.
Amazingly accurate as he saw today on the horizon.

LOL, I've done quite a bit of cross country driving here in the States. I thought I was one of the very few that enjoyed hearing him at "O' dark thirty" while traveling through the Mojave desert with not another vehicle for a hundred miles.

He definitely hit the nail on the head most of the time.

Cheers

Me too. LA to Mojave, camping out past the Tropico Gold Mine, Palmdale to Victorville and on to Vegas and beyond. Even sitting at home, Paul Harvey was always great to listen too. I thought his son took over for him?

Wiki says;

/Harvey died on February 28, 2009, at the age of 90 at a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, surrounded by family and friends.[41] No cause of death was announced. In response to his father's death, his son, Paul Harvey Jr., said, "millions have lost a friend".[42] At the time of his death, he had less than two years left on his ten-year contract. Former President George W. Bush issued a statement on Harvey's death, calling Harvey: "a friendly and familiar voice in the lives of millions of Americans."[43]

On March 4, Gil Gross was chosen to become the next host of News & Comment.[44] New owners Citadel Broadcasting, which had bought ABC Radio from Disney in 2008, chose Mike Huckabee, instead, but the show lasted only one week before being taken off the air.[45] Gross was actually happy not to have to do the show as that would have had him going into KGO San Francisco at around 1:00 a.m. to prep for the show that morning for the East Coast broadcasts (and his talk show was not until the late afternoon).

Harvey's full-length biography, Good Day! The Paul Harvey Story, was published in May 2009 by Regnery Publishing.[27]

On Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013, a recording of Paul Harvey's "So God Made a Farmer" commentary was used by Ram Trucks in a commercial titled "Farmer," which aired during Super Bowl XLVII.\

I find it fascinating that such a well known fellow like Huckabee couldn't make it work for more than a week. It really shows what Paul Harvey brought to the table, night in and night out.

Thanks again for posting JL.

Cheers

Ultra, Thank you for the good information on Paul Harvey. No doubt; he can never be replaced.
