Theodore "Skip" Weshner (1927-1996) was a disc jockey on radio stations in New York City (WBAI, WNCN) and Los Angeles (KRHM-FM) from the mid-1950s until the mid-1980s. He is most well known as the disc jockey and host of The Skip Weshner Show. Originally known as Accent on Sound, Weshner's radio show was one of the first folk music radio shows in New York City.
