Happy Birthday, Moe!
Free Song Download On December 2nd, 2010

Please join us in wishing Moe a happy birthday, and enjoy as our gift a free download of “Talkin’ Moe Asch’, written and performed by California-based “singer songfighter” Ross Altman.

Special thanks to Ross Altman for writing this song in 1998 and sending it to us this year. Learn more about Ross at www.rossaltman.net We believe it is a fitting tribute, even though the lyrics are based on anecdotes collected by the author and may not be 100% factual.
