About Jerry Modjeski

Jerry Modjeski is a sound designer, producer, writer and voice artist, born in Minnesota in 1960. Growing up in the small town of Winona, alongside his best friend Mark Masyga, they drew their own comic books, filmed their own Super 8 movie cartoons, also tape recorded spoofs of old time radio and TV reruns, entirely for their own amusement. In 1976, they telephoned the radio personality they most admired, Dr. Demento.

When Jerry transitioned from being a home taper to broadcasting, he and Mark collaborated on new material and remakes of scripts.  In 1982, KFAI aired their version of The Bozo Show. 

Over the years, Jerry has created many original audio productions for each show he’s participated in. Many of these are being archived to digital from tape and are being released here at scorchedear.com and archive.org.

Jerry has even inspired a song: here’s Modjeski by the End Time Quartet:

    seeking a bottle of Open Wound steak sauce to cure myself of lycanthropy. If anyone can find a bottle before it reaches its expiration date, I will pay top dollar.

    • I will ask Chuck Isle to look for a bottle (of Open Wound) the next time he shops at Milaca Unclaimed Freight. I used to find Open Wound at Steve’s Warehouse (38th and Hiawatha) and way back in the 80s, you could always count on Banks discount store for a slightly damaged carton at a bargain price.

    I recall a song by lazlo morbid that went something like, I like sniffing monkey dung, barfing on nice rugs and bugs…and I like you too.

    As you can see it made an impression on me as a child. A bad impression.

    I would also pay top dollar for a copy of it. Please let me know if it’s available online or on cd.

    • That’s “deep catalog” Lazlo Morbid you’ve regurgitated from the past! I can hear it in my head now, you have given me a new life goal to locate this particular item!!!
