About Ken Deutsch
Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll
Ken Deutsch is a former disc jockey, former TV director and former owner of a recording studio that specialized in radio jingles. As of March, 2020 he is also a former closed-caption typist, a career he enjoyed for the previous 14 years.
Ken also serves as Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll's resident Rockologist, working with Radio Dave Milberg, a friend and broadcast buddy since their college days together more than 50 years ago, when they were both doing shows on WCBN-AM and WPAG-AM-FM/Ann Arbor, as well as WXYZ-AM/Detroit. Deutsch also makes occasional appearances online as his alter-ego, 1960s DJ “Johnny Lizard.” For the last 36 years, he’s also been a feature writer for “Radio World” and several other publications.
Deutsch and his wife live in sunny Sarasota year ‘round, which Ken says is far better than shoveling snow and raking leaves most of the year in his previous state of residence, Ohio. Ken’s goal for the future is to try to stop talking about himself in the third person.
And when Ken takes a break from Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll, he is busy writing books about radio station jingles, as well as his adventures in broadcasting.
