Mad Man Moskowitz Audio — Weird and Wacky, 1992


This is my second offering of Bob Baron’s outstanding broadcasting skills . . . It’s two days before the November, 1992 general election, and here’s Mad Man Moskowitz spinning some of his weird and wacky flat friends on KRPM (K-106). With him are Gorgeous Rabbit and Looney Lucian. There’s a quick montage of some of his more-requested off-the-wall songs, a name-it-and-claim-it LP give-away and a promo highlighting his radio show’s high popularity on Sunday nights (there still was some creative radio in the early 90’s). LIke a previously posted Moskowitz aircheck, this won’t be found anywhere on the internet. It was a 7 1/2 ips recording on my (’60s) Akai X-360 reel-to-reel from a (’75) Marantz 2230 receiver (and yes, they’re both still working). The analog audio signal was converted to digital with a DAK 2800-PC audio editor.
Aircheck running time is just under 5:40. Great, entertaining radio long gone from today’s airwaves. (I’ve been told some people recorded hundreds of hours of Moskowitz’s original programs — audience dedication hard to imagine in today’s radio world.)
