Advice: Don't buy that "from Cuban seed" hype.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:09pm Danny Stiles:

Courtney's all our daddies.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:11pm 78 RPM Terminator:

I'll be back!
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:18pm Second Ukele Revival:

McCartney started "Something" with solo ukelele at Yankee Stadium this past weekend. Not that I went. I heard bootleg audio.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:33pm Uncle Sam:

Someone please just spackle and repaint my debt ceiling. That should hold it till January 2013.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Codger! Always enjoy hearing Sophie Tucker and Bruz Fletcher on the radio!
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Are these original Bruz 78s? I guess you found some that the Legion of Decency didn't smash already!
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:40pm PMD:

Aw, missed 40 minutes of it...
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@PMD: Hiya! I missed the first half-hour myself (trying to perfect a veal marsala recipe), but there's always the Archives. The Archives are history, just like the Old Codger!

How do you like that trombone mute?
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:42pm clownie:

no worry pmd codge is arkived. jes don tell him. hates digitel.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@clownie: Psst! Tell the Codger the Obama Death Panels are digitally archiving his shows without his consent and giving them to the hippies at FMU!
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:46pm autumn:

did you date meow west?
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:48pm autumn:

they did WHAT in the lotus position?
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:52pm clownie:

this codge spits all over mic
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:54pm Microphone Slobber Groove:

Everyone else is so dry-mouthed--the Codger is my only chance to take a proper, refreshing bath. Ahhhh...
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:55pm Uncle Sam:

Someday we will rebuild a new bionic Codge from the decades of dried spittle DNA accumulated on his mic.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Uncle Sam: He'd have to croak first...
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:57pm Uncle Sam:

Death panels, Matt. We'll get there. Then a new improved (and more pliable and obedient) Codge.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:58pm FCC:

THESE SONGS ARE NEARLY ALL DIRTY. I CALL LYRIC MALFUNCTION.
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:59pm I X Key!:

waaaaaaaaaaaahooooooooooooooooooo old codger
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, I thought you said "more pliable and obedient COOLIDGE". That's of course impossible, Calvin Coolidge was "Silent Cal"--he's everything you want him to be, and nothing more.
@FCC: You aren't even supposed to be around until 1934! Hush up!
  Tue. 7/19/11 8:59pm I X Key!:

waaaaahoooooooo ram rod daddy!!!!!!!!!!
  Tue. 7/19/11 9:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Still, I'd like a Codger software program--an automatic playlist and commentary generator--for my computer.
  Tue. 7/19/11 9:01pm Uncle Sam:

Codger, Coolidge. What's the difference?
  Tue. 7/19/11 9:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Till next time, Codger!
  Wed. 7/20/11 11:25pm Van Up:

Thanks for the Trix Sisters, Wendell Hall, Vaughn DeLeath, Eddie Cantor and many others. Also thanks for the investment tip - I'm already "living the dream"...
  Thu. 7/21/11 4:57am John of Shropshire:

I am always two days late listening to the podcast but as some of these 78s are more than fifty years old, I don't suppose it matters . . . another superlative show from a far-from-superannuated dj
