    He was an interesting person to listen to. Every workday at noon we listened to him while we ate our lunch in the old house our company used to get started, Medtronics.

    Brings back good memories. I too scheduled my lunch around his radio show.

    There was a 3 generation tradition in the South Alabama area among survey crews, to be in the truck, all conversation at an end, at 12:04 when Paul Harvey came on the radio. As people changed crews and changed companies the tradition spread.

    When I went to construction there was no scheduled lunch break so I stopped listening, and missed it a lot. There was a lot of common sense and core American values that came through those speakers, God's grace and blessings to you, Mr. Harvey, rest in peace.

    I would have never guessed Medtronics started in a house. Hopefully you made a lot of money for being there from the start.

    It was gutted out so only the shell/walls remained. Heavy wiring was run to support test and construction of things like the Defibrillators that had 100 Amp Circuit Breakers. A few times we smoked the wiring cause it wasn't capable of handling the current that the panel breakers were rated for. I heard stories of starting in a garage too.

    It was a few blocks off a main street in a old residential neighborhood in Minneapolis. We started with Pacemakers and began to ramp up new products at that time.
