Oscar Brand, R. I. P.

The New York Times: Oscar Brand, the lanky, affable, gravelly-voiced folk singer and songwriter whose weekly on-air hootenanny was the longest-running radio show in history with a single host, died on Friday at his home in Great Neck, N.Y. He was 96.  

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

We caught him performing at a WFMA annual festival about ten years ago and his albums were an important part of my youth. He had a good run.

Man...that's too bad. But he lived a long and (it seems) fulfilled life. One of the good guys.
