Happy Birthday!

Moses Asch
(you know – of Folkways records - over 2000 of them; none ever went out of print)

born Dec 2, 1905
in Warsaw, Poland
(d.10/19/1986)

The whole collection, very properly deemed an American Treasure, passed to the Smithsonian Institute. They assure us all will still be ever available. In fact, they seem to be doing a good job re-cutting many on CD as well as producing a number of Folkways archives never previously issued.

The database can be searched fully at:
