Paul Harvey's - The Man and the Birds


Growing up in the ‘60’s in our household meant that we had ample opportunity to hear Paul Harvey on the radio while mom and/or dad drove us to where ever we needed to go.  Trips to the doctor’s office, trips to the grocery store, trips to church on a Wednesday night…radio station, probably KFBK, blaring away in the car, and that meant ample opportunity to hear one of Paul Harvey’s daily News and Comment segments (weekday mornings and mid-days, and at noon on Saturdays), as well as his famous The Rest of the Story segments.  If “I” had to listen to Paul Harvey, I would hope it was going to be his “Rest of the Story”  because I would try and figure out “who” it was about, or “what” it was about, or “why” he felt it was so important….which he always shared at the end because, after all, “Now you know…..the Rest of the Story” was his famous last line of each and every of these stories. 
As I started driving myself around, owning my own cars (yes, my second car was a VW), I would occasionally tune in KFBK just to listen to Paul Harvey’s “The Rest of the Story.”  By the mid-70’s, “The Rest of the Story” had become its own full segment feature, so knowing when one would play meant they were easy to catch if you were near a radio at the time. 

So what a pleasure it was  the other day when Marcia asked, “Do you mind if I play this Paul Harvey segment off YouTube?”   “Sure, I have not heard Paul Harvey for a few years now….”

It is five minutes long, but it seems like its over in just two…hope you enjoy it too.
