One of the most distinctive voices in the history of radio, Paul Harvey was, in many respects, the soundtrack of my young life. His broadcasts still echo in my head a decade later. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from George W. Bush. Never has there been anyone more deserving of the honor. His passing was a sad day for me; made sadder by the fact that so few people of my generation knew who he was, had never heard that distinctive “hello Americans” or “this is Paul Harvey, good day.”

I recently came across this recording of a message called “The Testing Time” from the early 1960’s. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

“…And now you know the rest of the story.”
