WAS PAUL HARVEY A YOGI?
I think he was....
The Chicago-based broadcast innovator and icon died over the weekend at age 90.
He read an abridged version Bo Lozoff's "An Impatient Letter To All Of Us From God," above, on his syndicated radio show in 1998. (NOTE: It's best to ignore the video, and just listen).
I used to tune in to him on the Armed Forces Radio Network in Spain, in 1985. He gave me a connection to home.
He will be missed.*
*Harvey's death comes hot on the heels of three other Chicago broadcast deaths: former Chicago Bulls head coach and analyst Johnny “Red” Kerr, former Chicago Bull Norm Van Lier (a true gentleman, whom I waited on at Wishbone), and former Sun-Times and ABC-7 food critic James Ward.
