Real Music & Real Estate . . .

Yiddishe Cup’s bandleader, Bert Stratton, is Klezmer Guy.

He knows about the band biz and – check this out – the real estate biz too. So maybe he’s really Klezmer Landlord.

You may not care about the real estate biz. Hey, you may not care about the band biz. (See you.)

This is a blog with a gamy twist. It features tenants with snakes and skunks, and musicians with smoked fish in their pockets.

Stratton has written op-eds for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post.

Do I need to get a durable power of attorney for you yet? :)

2 Ken G. { 07.02.14 at 10:32 am }

That title by the late Del Spitzer sounds particularly filthy. Let me know know if you get a charge out of it.

3 Mark Schilling { 07.02.14 at 10:56 am }

How could you omit Will E. Makit and Betty Wont’s immortal classic “One Hundred Yards to the Outhouse”?

4 Ken G. { 07.02.14 at 1:20 pm }

Did you find your book there, Bert? Or did they somehow miss it?

5 David Korn { 07.09.14 at 3:50 pm }
