Chuck Brodsky

The Artist behind Baseball Ballads

Chuck Brodsky is an American singer and songwriter who was born in Philadelphia and loves the Phillies (sorry about this year Chuck).  Chuck wrote Moe Berg – The Song which will be heard during our next podcast featuring Moe Berg.

Chuck will also be interviewed during this podcast.  Did you know that Chuck Brodsky’s great uncle worked on the Manhattan Project and Moe Berg used him as a reference on his OSS (Office of Strategic Services) application?  Chuck didn’t even know this fact until after he wrote Moe Berg – The Song.
