Charley the houseboy:
Dear Mr. Edison,
I hear you went to Rutgers with Quincy Magoo. If so, do you know any dirt about him I can use? I'm trying to get a raise from the old tightwad.

another old man:
Gosh, love that hearing that Clubfoot again - delightful!

It's taken a cuppla days as usual for the show to percolate through the Atlantic ether to London, England but I am receiving you loud and clear via RealAudio. Re. Pok's query, the Old Codger is very very old. He was already very very old when he started broadcasting on WFMU a long long time ago (see playlists online) and is now older, even though he sounds as old as he did then. I hope this answers your question.

I agree with you about chimps. I had one - Bubbles - trained to serve dinner, make coffee and carry out general household chores but he got restless and I returned one day to find him at a typewriter. He wrote something he'd called Hamlet which was obviously of no use to me in my career as a great entertainer.

I don't understand all this talk about chimpanzees and Hamlet. What is wrong with young people today? Why can't they enjoy simple pleasures? Haven't they heard of muffins? Can we just get back to the music?
