Sam Moss - Live 1977

Sam Moss
Birth name

Almost every week for 30 years, Sam Moss would duck into the basement of his house in Pikesville, Maryland, briefly stopping in the kitchen to admire his wife’s matzo balls. As the kneydlach expanded upstairs, Sam also underwent a metamorphosis. 
The home remodeling salesman and loving father of three would transform into a schmaltz-spewing fountain of Yiddishkeit, known as Jewish Baltimore’s most beloved radio personality. For it was in this Milford Mill road basement – in a little studio next to a subterranean oyster bar where Sam would crack jokes and shuck Chesapeake Bay treyf – that he wrote his weekly radio show, the “Sam Moss Jewish Hour of Comedy and Pride.”
Every Sunday, Baltimore would wake up to his voice, featuring Jewish jokes told over a background of Klezmer music and canned laughter.
Sam would also assume the personality of “Rex Yeed,” the Hollyvoooodcritic, and offer hilarious movie review told in a rollicking Yinglish rhyming patois. Finally, every show would conclude by reminisces of growing up in Jewish East Baltimore, with “Memory Lane,” written by Sam’s wife Rose, who grew up across the street from him. 
If Barry Levinson is the cultural ambassador to the outside world for Baltimore’s Jewish community, Sam Moss was its internal voice, speaking to young and old through Jewish music, comedy and nostalgia. Source: Official Site
