For years, Paul Harvey was the news in America. Noon was the time activity slowed or stopped on farms and ranches across eastern Montana and northern Wyoming. It stopped for the 15 minutes of the news of the day delivered by a man from the Ozarks of Missouri. More precisely, a man who lived not that many miles south of St. Louis.
It was a plain spoken, common sense broadcast delivered in one of the most unusual styles ever. If you heard it, you certainly remember. A friend shared this post from an original 1965 Harvey broadcast, updated to possibly 1996.
