Ashton Kutcher pays tribute to radio broadcaster Paul Harvey on MySpace pageMarch 2nd, 2009 - 6:17 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 2 (ANI): American actor Ashton Kutcher has paid tribute to late Paul Harvey, crediting the radio broadcaster on his MySpace page with having taught him how to tell a story.
Harvey, whose programmes aired in the U.S. for more than 60 years, died on February 28 at the age of 90.
Kutcher, 31, says that he grew up listening to Harveys on-air commentaries.
Today I celebrate the life and mourn the loss of one of our greatest storytellers. Paul Harvey enriched my life through his gifted voice and ability to deliver a tale with the most unsuspecting ending I”d ever heard, the Daily Star quoted him as writing on his official blog.
He made the countless hours of driving back and forth (to) my grandparents” house on Sunday morning bearable. I would sit in the back seat of the car, choking on my parents” cigarette smoke, hanging on to his every last word…
It was like he was watching your reaction and knew that he had you hooked. I always felt like he was the smartest, wittiest person in the car.
He would take you on a roller coaster of peaks and valleys (and) as we drove it felt like he had choreographed it to the road we travelled. And in the end we were allowed to find out ”the rest of the story” which we never saw coming. Thank you Paul for teaching me how to tell a story, he added. (ANI)
