I remember Paul Harvey's distinctive voice from the tube radio in my youth in the early 70's. He had a pleasant sound and those vocalic pauses were memorable even to a young child. As I grew older his voice was like that of a soothing relative.When I was in bad times between jobs talk radio helped me stay focused.
My journey took me to Vermont where I could hear some of my favorites at night. Paul Harvey and Rush are literally everywhere so for me it was a taste of home away.
I loved those 15 minutes of light radio fare with a voice that was trusted with a perpetual smile.
I am certain many of you will miss Harvey as well.
