02BRAND4-obit-articleLarge.jpg Oscar Brand, Author of a Clean Song, Dies at Age 96
Doug Yeager, Mr. Brand’s personal manager, said the cause was pneumonia.
Oscar Brand has been a long-time favorite in the demented community with such favorites as "A Clean Song", "Seven Old Ladies Locked In A Lavatory" and "Four Letter Words".
In addition to performing and recording prolifically, Mr. Brand wrote books, articles and the scores for Broadway musicals and documentary films. He also hosted television shows. But it was his radio show, “Folksong Festival,” for which he was best known.

Mr. Brand’s own singing voice had an offhand (and sometimes off-key) authenticity, which he applied to old, new and sometimes deliberately mangled songs, both on and off the air. He was also an accomplished songwriter. Doris Day’s version of his song “A Guy Is a Guy” reached No. 1 on the Billboard chart in 1952.
