Paul Harvey Held Audiences by Telling Stories

Paul Harvey, who died this weekend, never used PowerPoint.  He never interacted with his audience using webinars or modern gizmos like “twitter.”

He just sat in front of a microphone, spoke with energy, and told stories. And people listened.

I used to love Paul Harvey.  Not because I agreed with his conservative politics.  I think the the obituaries have over stated that stuff.

I just loved hearing him tell stories.  When he came on the radio, I would sit in my car until his broadcast was done.  So would millions of others as they waited to hear “The rest of the story.”

And he always had something uplifting to say.

Paul Harvey said, “    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.”
