Radio legend Paul Harvey is known for his very specific style, tone, and cadence. My Paul Harvey impression is the vocal impersonation that I’ve spent the most time listening to and perfecting since 1987, my earliest recollection of impersonating him. While he is no longer living, his Rest of the Story broadcasts are still very popular and really capture the essence of modern, story-based podcasting. The sample above is from a piece which tells the story of the annexation/merging of two small communities.
The video below is a longer piece titled So God Made a Hockey Mom, produced in the style of Paul Harvey’s So God Made a Farmer speech (and subsequent Ram truck Superbowl commercial).
