I first heard Rush in the mid '90s, while working the road as a supervisor on night shift. I was searching for a good station to keep me alert, and I stumbled upon his broadcast. I don't even know the station carrying it (it had to be a re-broadcast), but the first thing I heard was the National Anthem followed by this 'blustering' individual saying things that nobody else had the guts to say, in a manner that carried the mantle of absolute self-confidence in his patriotism, and in the most clever way.
I was hooked.
His passing crushed me. You and I talked about it briefly a couple of days ago, but there was no way to get ready for its happening.
When Kathryn opened the show today it was instantaneously apparent why she was speaking, and when Ray Charles's "America the Beautiful" began to play after her message, I cried like he was family.
Because he was.
