Paul Harvey’s “If I Were The Devil, Our Father Who Art In Washington” speech in 1965 is spot on in 2012.  Paul Harvey Aurandt, better known to the world as Paul Harvey, penned the article in 1964 but rumor has it the audio presented here in his own words is from 1965.

Paul Harvey was the BEST.  No one on the radio was/is as good as Paul Harvey.  He could deliver a story on radio better that anyone could with pictures.  He made you think.  He made you see.  He made you feel.  But, most importantly, he made you believe.

I remember seeing Paul Harvey at a radio seminar several years before his death in 2009.  He walked into the room and commanded your attention.  If my memory serves me correctly, he received a standing ovation before he even uttered a word.

He was a genius at his craft.  He delivered daily broadcasts for ABC Radio Networks and captured us all with The Rest of the Story. His listening audience bolstered a population of more than 24 million people per week at the peak of his career.  And that doesn’t even begin to take into account the people who read his newspaper column.

The following audio is from 1965.  You would think he recorded it yesterday.  That’s how brilliant he was…and a testament as to how low we have gone.  “Good Day”!
