Jewish Cowboys Part 4: Harold Stern, Manischewitz Cowboy

I had no idea, when starting this blog, that I would end up obsessed with Jewish Cowboys. Seriously. Jewish Cowboys part 4?

But they just keep coming. I recently ran across a post on the "Our Lady of Perpetual Obsolescence Vinyl Rescue Mission and Orphanage" blog about
"a promotional 45 rpm record produced by the Manischewitz company features Mr. Stern speaking about his life as a Jewish Cowboy, sharing personal information about himself (he’s single ladies!), and thanking the Manischewitz for providing all the fixins that enable his family to observe the holidays in ranch country. To break up these personal vignettes, singer/accordionist Avram Grobard steps in and performs a couple of short selections."
The folks at the Vinyl Rescue Mission have graciously placed the 9 minute recording on their website. Check it out.
