Kutcher Honours Radio Star Harvey

Actor ASHTON KUTCHER has written a touching tribute to PAUL HARVEY, crediting the late radio broadcaster with teaching him the art of storytelling.
Harvey, whose programmes aired in the U.S. for more than 60 years, died on Saturday (28Feb09) at the age of 90.
And Kutcher, who grew up listening to Harvey's on-air commentaries, insists the broadcasts helped shape his approach to acting.
He writes on his official MySpace blog: "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.
"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."
