Yes, broadcasting legend Paul Harvey bought the farm at age 90. It's... true.
OK, many of you may have no idea who Paul Harvey was. But there was a time when he, as the was the biggest thing on radio. He was a top dollar advertising buy, and to be an advertiser, he had to approve of your product, and then sponsors had to allow him do the ads himself.
His uniquely annoying delivery was best mocked by an otherwise forgettable comedian and one-time Saturday night Live cast member, Rich Hall. Hall's version of Paul Harvey immediately came to mind when I heard Harvey had died. Specifically the "It's true, and speaking of true, True Value..." linkage, which made me laugh for the great satire it was. Of course, great satire only is great if the audience knows the original subject being satirized. If you re under 30, this may be lost on you.
But, as a tribute to a one-time supporter of Joe McCarthy, here's Rich Hall playing both himself and Paul Harvey from a 1987 television special. (You can find anything on that YouTube thing.)
And that's the...end.... of the story.
