Harvey is recovering from pneumonia and is scheduled for cataract surgery, and his producers have been asking guests to take turns at the mike.

Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstom said the governor taped his segment this morning from WBZ's radio studio in Boston.

Harvey, who is syndicated by ABC Radio, has a weekly audience of more than 22 million, and can generally be found on the same station where Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talkers can also be heard.
