Paul Harvey Aurandt was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and this young man had a very big dream.
Aurandt, you say? Oh yes, that was really Paul’s last name, as odd as it may seem.
Unusual individual with a talent from a very young age; in 1933, he stepped on that gigantic stage.
Legend this man will always be, his kindly voice stood out, end of an era in radio, no one should ever doubt.
Hello Americans!” He would great us each day. The one American he missed the most, he is now with her today.
Arriving at the Heavenly gate, an “Angel” there did wait for him. It was his “Angel” for 68 years his loving wife Lynn.
Reaching forth unto those things that are before, he pressed toward the mark and today stands at God’s door.
Very well done, my good and faithful servant” the Master’s Voice did say. “You are here with Me, Paul, for eternity this very day.”
Every day they cross our path we see them on the street, it is a pleasure when, by chance, the opportunity we get to meet.
You know what the news is, in a minute; you’re going to hear… the rest of the story.”
