Paul Harvey: 'The rest of the story' ends: The Swamp


Quote:
Paul Harvey Aurandt (September 4, 1918 - February 28, 2009), better known as Paul Harvey, was an American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He broadcasted News and Comment on weekday mornings and mid-days, and at noon on Saturdays, as well as his famous The Rest of the Story segments. His listening audience was estimated at 22 million people a week. Harvey liked to say he was raised in radio newsrooms.[1]

The most noticeable features of Harvey's idiosyncratic delivery was his dramatic pauses, quirky intonations and his folksiness. A large part of his success stemmed from the seamlessness with which he segued from his monologue into reading commercial messages. He explained his enthusiastic support of his sponsors as such: "I am fiercely loyal to those willing to put their money where my mouth is."[citation needed]

On Sept. 12, 2008, after the death of George Putnam, Harvey became the oldest syndicated radio personality in America.[citation needed]

On Feb. 28, 2009, Paul Harvey, America's oldest radio personality died at the age of 90.
RIP Mr. Harvey

A legend. A few quotes:

Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals suffering? Because government is not. Why not? Animals don't vote.
Paul Harvey

Golf is a game in which you yell "fore," shoot six, and write down five.
Paul Harvey

I've never seen a monument erected to a pessimist.
Paul Harvey

If 'pro' is the opposite of 'con' what is the opposite of 'progress'?
Paul Harvey

If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of ten it will.
Paul Harvey

In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.
Paul Harvey

Like what you do, if you don't like it, do something else.
Paul Harvey

When your outgo exceeds your income, the upshot may be your downfall.

My first full time job was in a ceramic mold factory. The old guy who ran the pump room always had to listen to Mr. Harvey. We'd change the radio for him and be quiet every day during the broadcast. Fond memories.
