The Brooklyn-born broadcaster started his long association with ‘QXR in 1953. He left a staff position in 1971 to concentrate on acting and his voice-over work. But even during the sabbatical from WQXR, he hosted two shows.
The longtime afternoon announcer, Moss returned to the station on a regular basis in 1989.
“I never had the privilege of meeting Lloyd in person, but most certainly loved listening to him on WQXR when I moved to New York in 1995,” said Graham Parker, the Vice President and General Manager of WQXR, said on the station’s website. “His was a voice of a golden generation and his perspective on music and New York so utterly captivating.”
Moss added author to the resume, with the 1995 Simon & Schuster book Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin.
A paid obituary in today’s New York Times said Moss requested donations should be made in his name to The Innocence Project.
