Listener comments!

  Mon. 12/22/08 12:06pm Sean Daily:

Vice, corruption... sounds like a swinging place.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:08pm another old man:

Even through all that beautiful surface noise, they do sound happy.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:16pm monica:

The Codger's an old coot but he's OUR old coot and we love him! Even though he's tight with a dollar and refused to tip the nice lady waitress at the Flamingo the other day. Told her to bet on Flossie's A Goner in the third race at Belmont or some such nonsense...
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:21pm A lawyer:

I advise Liz Berg to plead Lox Nova Philadelphia - offer the judge a bagel and a schmear and hope for the best.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:27pm Sean Daily:

I recommend that Liz pull an Al Pacino in court: "YOU'RE out of ordah! YOU'RE out of ordah! This whole trial's out of ordah!"
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:30pm Chico:

Plead the Sanity Clause!
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:32pm Groucho:

The party of the first part...
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:37pm Ike:

I want to hear more about the vortex of turpitude, graft, timeslot-peddling, and the oiled DJ palms!
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:38pm Middle Aged Codger:

The OC's having a party? Perfect timing! Walmart is having a sale on jugs of Gallo.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:49pm Harpo:

Honk honk honk!
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:51pm Zeppo:

Don't forget about ME. Everyone always does. Damn. I used to be a Hollywood heavy. They referred to me as Led Zeppo.

Make that three hardboiled eggs.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:52pm Gummo:

As for me, I really was a Marx brother, and not just a film by Harmony Korine.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:53pm Skid:

Nobody ever talks about me. I'm the brown sheep of the family!
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:54pm Karl:

Those boys were tools of the capitalist Hollywood star system.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:55pm Karl:

The means of hilarity should be held in common by all the workers.
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:55pm Margaret Dumont:

Harrumph!!!
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:55pm Rufus T. Firefly:

Hey, I resemble that remark.

Woobwoobwoobwoobwoob...oh, wrong family...
  Mon. 12/22/08 12:56pm Karl:

Sorry, I stutter.
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:02pm Otis P. Driftwood:

I can see you standing in front of a hot stove ... but I can't see the stove.
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:06pm Jerome again:

I was trying to think but nothin' happened!
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:06pm Captain Spaulding:

My name is Captain Jeffrey T. Spaulding. I bet you don't know what the T stands for.
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:09pm Moe:

Oh boy! Bologna and whipped cream! My favorite!
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:10pm Md. Ag. Cdg.:

Is it just me, or does anyone else think she sounds like Judson Fountain?
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:10pm S. Quentin Quale:

Lulubelle, it’s you! I didn’t recognize you standing up.
  Mon. 12/22/08 1:24pm GP:

O.C. this is a wonderful show but how are we to know when to expect you next ( 1st time hearing this show). Do we just follow the car with the turn-signal for 30 minutes until it FINALLY decides to turn into the FMU parking lot?

A section of the ending of Dawn on the Desert by the John Kirby Orchestra (9:24 to 9:38 of this archive) has the same melody as the chorus of Henry Mancini's It Had Better Be Tonight (Meglio Stasera) from The Pink Panther (http://www.wfmu.org/listen.ram?show=12705&archive=15844&starttime=2:02:52).
  Wed. 1/7/09 3:38pm Ruy Silva:

Dr.Mr.Courtney,
I know you are a Codger, but I deeply think that the accrued effort would be minimum if you could post at least the year of each wonderful recording that you show. This is the first time I hear your program although it was a very long standing aspiration. I'm your most humble colleague from Listener Hour and from Brazil. Do put that damn year, Codger, please, so that we could evaluate the records even better. Anyway, what a hell of wonderful program I've just discovered and I've already downloaded a dozen of them.A hubba-hubba-hubba, mighty smoky over Tokyo, all those foolish things...
