or audio files? I have looked at his website and haven't seen anything about these being archived (beyond a week) or being available for purchase. There are few things that I enjoy more than listening to Paul Harvey, and I just can't believe that these are not being preserved for posterity. The only success that I've had is on file sharing networks like Napster, but that is no longer an option. Any ideas?

You should ask the Museum of Broadcast Communication (http://museum.tv/archives/index.shtml) in Chicago or the Museum of Telveison & Radio (http://mtr.org/) in New York.

His "The Rest of the Story" features have been collected in book form (multiple volumes).

Harvey certainly is deserving of his place in the Radio Hall of Fame (http://radiohof.org/news/paulharvey.html), but isn't it fair to say that his "Rest of the Story" bits are sometimes lacking in the area of factual reporting and quite often simply his repeating of urban legends?

Paul Harvey's broadcasts in general are best used for `entertainment purposes only' as the saying goes, because he has a natural proclivity towards glurgy urban legends and he doesn't think it's worth his time to fact-check.

FAIR speaks to his UL-a-riffic habits as well as his right-wing bias. (http://fair.org/extra/9709/harvey.htm) I don't give a rat's ass about his bias, but ULs spread as fact make me annoyed.

A Slate piece on how one of Harvey's typical stories is bunk. (http://slate.msn.com/id/1005636/) This one is about what happened to the signatories of the Delcaration of Independence. And Snopes debunks it, too. (http://snopes.com/glurge/declare.htm)
