Another legend in the folk world passed away today. Oscar Brand was 96.

He and my late mother were college classmates at Brooklyn College, Class of 1942. He was also the inspiration for Sesame Street's "Oscar the Grouch." His radio show on WNYC-AM had been running since 1945.

An amazing career, to be sure.
