Music without Moskowitz? Not quite the same now is it?

By in Radio & Television on October 17, 2011

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over five years since Robert Baron, the acerbic and droll host of “Music With Moskowitz” most recently on KSER, passed away. His show featured a unique lineup of “weird and wacky” comedy and novelty songs, such as you ain’t never heard, and in an earlier incarnation, another hour or more of really old country music (the good stuff).

When Jimmy Dean passed away recently, I was softly singing “I Won’t Go Hunting With You Jake, But I’ll Go Chasin’ Women” for about 3 days, much to the annoyance of my coworkers.

KSER has a comedy radio show on Saturday mornings that features some of the same, but I an never up from 7-9 on Saturday morning. I salute those stalwart souls.

    My 82 year old father was a huge fan of this show. Does anyone know if there are recordings availabe for purchase? This would be the best gift we could ever give him.

    Also, what city is KSER located in?

      Sandy, I don’t have an email for you, but please email me, I’ve got a line on some Moskowitz.

    I used to have some homemade tapes but they were taped on a crummy boombox and sort of deteriorated.

    There are a few places to get this kind of music, but sadly I don’t know where to get recording of actual MWM.

    KSER is based in Everett, Wa and also streams on – They do have a program that starts at 7am on Saturday morning, “The Academy of Comedy” that I very rarely hear because I work nights.

    I happen to be listening to that program right now, as luck would have it- They are playing Christmas novelty songs right now- Some folks call them green onions, but they’re really scallions. MWM would never play Christmas music this close to Christmas!

    Anyway, I seem to recall that “Nathan Detroit” is on at the tail end of this program for a bit- Perhaps he could be of assistance. If I find out more I will post here. Have a Merry Christmas, John

Have your say!
