Happy Birthday to Moe!

Posted by Michael Eldridge on December 2, 2010

December 2d is the 105th birthday of Moses Asch, founder of Folkways records and the man responsible for bringing many top-notch calypsonians to the attention of American audiences on the Disc, Stinson, and Folkways labels from the mid-1940s through the early 60s.  More in this post from last May and at Smithsonian Folkways, from whose site I nicked the above image.
