Listener comments!

He's got *shoes* older than you!
  Fri. 7/13/07 8:40am Ramon Newton:

You are the best, Old Codger! We need you every week - neigh, every day! When cds have been beaten into coasters you will still be swirling these frantic platters! Spin on!
  Fri. 7/13/07 8:43am Mary Whitehouse:

I am disgusted by some of the lyrics of these songs. What is Hydrant Love? I can enjoy a Bongo Bop will the best of them but a Midnight Creep is too far for me. Some self-censorship is in order, Mr Codger.
  Tue. 7/17/07 3:43pm Steven G. Levine:

C. T. Edison --- The Legend Lives On (despite numerous roach traps and cans of Raid sprayed his way). Yes, Virginia, there is a codger.

(The man has hemorrhoids older than me!)
  Sun. 7/22/07 1:05pm Sean A. Garrison:

His phone number is "6".
  Sun. 7/22/07 3:42pm Victor O. K. Brunswick:

Regarding the songs cited in the request for self-censorship, be aware that the recording of "Hydrant Love" was made in 1925. California Playboys performed "Midnight Creep" in 1949, although Bell-Lyttelton probably did this one in the '50's.

Censoring the archives of musical history would be as repulsive as circumcizing the Codger.
  Mon. 7/23/07 3:46pm Percival P. Poopdeck:

Ye Olde Codger:
In the words of Hell 'n' Cain, "He's so unusual."
  Thu. 3/6/08 5:32pm Delliana:

Thank You for your show, Lovin' it!
