Robert Baron had one of the largest old record collections imaginable. Under the well-known moniker “Mad Man Moskowitz,” he was very successful in playing lots of them on the radio. Most of those records were several decades old. A lot of them were zany novelty songs, others were well known country-western or other popular tunes of their day. But listeners loved them, which is why “Music with Moskowitz” enjoyed a near 30-year-run, starting in the mid-70s on Seattle’s KRAB, and later KMPS, KYCW, KKBY, KRPM and finally KSER in South Everett. Baron was a school teacher whose shows were listener-driven. He played just what folks requested, and then put their names on the air — Wow, human radio appeal now lost from the medium! Baron passed on at age 61 in 2004. He had a large, faithful following. A lot of people recorded his programs — including yours truly. Here’s a clip from one of his April 1994 shows on KRPM. It runs about 5:43
