I remember when it was time for the producers to renew his contract. He was getting on in years, but he signed a multi year contract that was for mucho denaro. It was almost obvious he wouldn't out live the contract, but he was that good. They wanted him.

I too miss Paul Harvey. He was definitely a great american and loved his country.  Below is a link to some of his stories if you would like to listen to them.  I would recommend listening to the one about "If I Was the Devil" and see how pertinent his message was to our nation today.

When he quit his broadcasts, it left a hole in the airwaves.

Thinking about this thread brought to mind other entertainers I used to enjoy, such as Arthur Godfrey and Red Skelton.(Who? Never heard of them.) They were both known for their moral decency.

My generation is missing out on some good shows. Ones that promoted higher morals and fellow man.

I remember watching the Waltons. Often I would hear comments that the show was phony, people didn't act like that. Well, yeah! When I was a kid, we did! It wasn't until it became desirable for young people to be 'streetwise'

that folks began acting tough and snarky and disrespectful.
