Chuck Brodsky (born May 20, 1960 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American musician and singer-songwriter currently living in Asheville, North Carolina. He is particularly known for his often humorous and political lyrics, as well as his songs about baseball, such as "The Ballad of Eddie Klepp" and "Moe Berg: The Song". On his 2004 album Color Came One Day, he took on pollution in "Seven Miles Upwind", the destruction of independent business and regional culture by multinational corporations in "Trees Falling", and the abridgement of civil liberties associated with Bush administration policies in "Dangerous Times".

His song "Radio" was featured in the film Radio.[1] His most recent release, Two Sets (2008), was a double live CD recorded at concerts in North Carolina, Georgia and Ireland.[2]

Another song, called "Bill and Annie", was featured in episode 3 of the podcast "Welcome to Night Vale", made by Commonplace Books.
