Oscar Brand - 1961


In the late 50s there was a series of "Bawdy Songs and Backroom Ballads".  These were varying degrees of bawdy but recorded by Oscar Brand.  Oscar was one of the faces of folk music.  By the early 60s Oscar was recording shows for the government (Social Security Administration, HEW and probably others).  AFRTS ran these shows.  Here's a 1961 visit.
