The Punsters (We're Drunk Again EP)

Keeping in line with the Summer theme; I thought this would be a fun record to post. Honestly, I really don't know much about The Punsters, and there's not much online about them as a group. Most of the info online surrounds Robert Kaplow , who seems to have started the band; and is an Author, as well as an English teacher in Summit, New Jersey. I'm not sure if The Punsters were a real band, or a joke, (no pun intended). I found evidence of a Moe Moskowitz and the Punsters, who apparently did a number of parodies, and sketches for National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. Other than this single,(which looks as though it was self released) I've seen an LP a few times, but I never picked it up. If you look on Utube there's a few Punsters videos you can check out. The other Punsters were: Tim Korzun, Marc Lanzoff, and Carmen Presti.

Yes that's us. Our first 45 from 1980. Moe Moskowitz and the Punsters was also us. Besides the Boardwalk Santa LP, we did two CD's of studio and live things plus "Moe Moskowitz" bits recorded for NPR. Robert Kaplow has details on his site, RobertKaplow.com. The fifth Punster, Mike Townsend, curates our YouTube channel. Thanks for the mention. - Dr. Tim
