Over the weekend, the world lost a true radio legend.
Paul Harvey was a radio fixture for several decades.Â He was always a pleasure to listen to and I could always count on him to make me feel better when there seemed to be nothing but bad news on the air that day.
I always saw Paul as being the a grandfather on radio, sort of charactor.Â He was always there to give us a little reassurance in the bad times and make us feel a little better about ourselves and the world.Â Rarely did he have anything negative to say about anyone, and he always kepts his politics in check.
I had the pleasure of meeting him once, if only for the briefest of moments, at the Bakersfield Business Conference many years ago.Â He was shaking hands and I got in line to be one of those that had the pleasure.
I am not sure what life will be like without his voice in the mornings and for the lunch time show.Â Yes, I am sure life will go on, but there will never be a replacement for him.Â He will be missed.
To the Harvey family… You have the condolences of the Wright family.Â Your loss is our loss, as it is a loss to the world.
