Listener comments!

  Tue. 7/3/12 8:04pm Life During Wartime:

Good show, Codge, good show! Finally, some contemporary political satire I understand!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:04pm Mumford:

What's that stale smell?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:05pm Mc Bain:

My Eyes The Goggles Do Nothing!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:05pm kat330:

Lemons anyone? Neon yellow gets one's attention all right.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:07pm Smoking Gun:

@kat: Lemons...and ORANGES! Think of the similarities between playlists...
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:09pm kat330:

Sooooo..... you are saying ..... Chusid? Whoever it is is putting on a fake old guy voice. I know having done a fake grandma voice in a radio broadcast of Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine."
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:09pm Pulse:

  Tue. 7/3/12 8:11pm kat330:

Matt fS -- c'mon, you must be lurking somewhere under the lemon tree?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:12pm rrg:

He has to sleep once in a while.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:13pm kat330:

@rrg: Heh, true! I don't know how he does it.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:13pm Smoking Gun:

Hearty White -- Cranky Yellow
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:14pm kat330:

And say, thanks again for that Borge link. Turns out it was a synchronicity for a little soundcloud bit already in the works re: "Dark Eyes." :)
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:15pm rrg:

He's younger than us. Always will be.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:16pm kat330:

Will we hear any Noel Coward this eve? Maybe "Mad About the Boy"?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:18pm rrg:

Maybe, but we don't hear enough Whispering Jack Smith. Even on the Codger's program.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:19pm Matt from Springfield:

(snore) Huh...? Oh, time for the Codger (rolls off)
@kat: You think it's tough for me, look at Danne D! He must sleep like a trucker to fit in all the shows! :)
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:20pm Matt from Springfield:

And hello rrg--I believe you're also a Codger fan. I was finishing dinner, checked in at the beginning and listened to the whole thing, and now join you all!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:21pm kat330:

Heh! HE LIVES! :) Yeah, well, when I first stumbled on these comments lists, I was certain there was a rotation of folks covering various personae -- you included -- but Danne D particularly.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:22pm rrg:

All these personalities pass the Turing Test. So, I'm convinced that they're real people.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Our favorite bachelor!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:23pm rrg:

Alas, he had no children.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:23pm dale:

a fine show so far, mr. codger. fine, i tell ya!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:23pm kat330:

Gotta invite one of these to every party for it to be a true party.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:24pm Philo Gristle:

No, I believe it must be the exact opposite, kat dear: Matt and Danne D ARE the same person.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:24pm Tobacconist:

Fine as Santiago snuff!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:26pm Statistician:

@Philo: Now hold on, have you done the math? To be both Matt AND Danne, someone would have to comments for 316 hours a week, straight. And to factor in Carmichael and other frequent personalities, the hours per week of commenting become astronomical.

Maybe they're all a supercomputer's AI program..?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:27pm Tobacconist:

Rancho Malario--thank goodness for the Old Codger, or else nobody would purchase these shoddy wares!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:27pm kat330:

I confess that I am.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:28pm Philo Gristle:

And by the same person, I don't necessarily mean a 'person,' but an artificial intelligence controlled Babbage machine operated by steam.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:28pm Philo Gristle:

@Statistician EXACTLY! See, I'm not crazy.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:28pm kat330:

Jinx Philo & Statistician! :)
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:28pm Steampunker:

Now we're talkin' Philo Gristle!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:29pm kat330:

It's like an Adam Sandler voice.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:30pm kat330:

Did notice from other O.C. playlists a proclivity to Ruth Etting. Fine leaning by me.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Marion Harris and Ruth Etting are fairly new to me, but I liked both of them last time. Hope to hear more!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:32pm kat330:

Add some Mae West and Noel Coward -- happy camping.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, the KAT 330 supercomputer program!
The M.A.T.T. module from Springfield, VA will transmit a message to you shortly :)
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:33pm HAL 9000:

Help me! I'm being squeezed out of existence!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:33pm kat330:

Very sophisticated programming I received when doing theater on stage at M.I.T.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:34pm MITT2012:

I like those sugary thingies.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:34pm Life After Wartime:

Blimey, I would prefer the Blitz again to this sub-urban racket!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mitt: Especially when they're the right size.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:35pm kat330:

@Mitt: D'oh! Nuts.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:36pm Trixie !927:

Great show, Courtney, but I suspect you already knew that.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:36pm MITT2012:

Yes, and if not, I'll have my boy pick them up. Cheerio, fellas, I've gotta catch a dancing horse to the Cayman Islands. If only my elevator didn't have a KITT brain of its own.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:36pm kat330:

@LAW: Are you suggesting he's Butchering this tune?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, like an Italian Andrews Sisters.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:38pm Life After Wartime:

kat: Butcher? Would that he were--meat is STILL being rationed! Confound that blasted Stafford Cripps!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:39pm Matt from Springfield:

I wonder if the Codger has a 78 of Alessandro Moreschi, the last castrati and the only one to be recorded?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:39pm kat330:

Or the current Brooklyn dolls and Garrison regs. the DiGiallonardo Sisters.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:41pm kat330:

Lei me down on a feather bed -- love this!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:43pm kat330:

@LAW: OK, you win the age game. Have no memories of rationing -- only the era of the atom, Eisenhower and plenty.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:44pm Matt from Springfield:

Though no one liked Moe "The Gimp" Snyder to begin with.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:47pm kat330:

Mm, salmon on a plank, tomorrow's dinner.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:47pm kat330:

Coward's up!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:48pm Parq:

Hello to whoever is running this thing, because I am pretty darn sure that the OC himself is not doing a comment-enabled acuplaylist.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:49pm kat330:

@Parq: I'm gonna guess it's rrg .
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:49pm Matt from Springfield:

@Parq: He's not aware of this playlist, and others have said not to aggrevate him by telling him about it.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:50pm kat330:

Great song.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:51pm sal:

codge has no idea all his shows are archived. he would be mortified.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:52pm kat330:

Love Holiday's version, too, of course.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:53pm kat330:

Wha' happened to "You took the best / So why not take the rest" ?
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't let this happen to you: buy some whiskey!
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:56pm kat330:

Ruby was a far better dancer than singer.
  Tue. 7/3/12 8:56pm rrg:

The Codger knows that shows are archived but he thinks the archive is a huge box of 78 RPM transcriptions. Or that's what he was told.
  Tue. 7/3/12 9:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Always love this Blast from the Past--until the next Codger appearance, everybody!
  Tue. 7/3/12 9:01pm Parq:

According to Groucho Marx, Irving Berlin hated "Stay Down Here" and once told Groucho to call him (Berlin) whenever he (Groucho) felt like singing it and he (Berlin) would pay him (Marx) $100 not to.
  Tue. 7/3/12 9:01pm kat330:

Thanks, O.C., and the good folks in the lemon tree with me! Have a great and safe 4th!
  Tue. 7/3/12 9:01pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks Codger and Pals!
  Fri. 7/13/12 11:57pm Van Up:

You punched the Gimp and lived to tell about it - I'm impressed! Thanks for playing the very first Ruth Etting I ever heard back when I was a kid.
  Sun. 8/12/12 4:11am Young Whippersnapper:

Old Codger, your show is the business! Cant get enough of that surface noise!
  Tue. 8/21/12 7:06am Roy:

Good to hear you are still the business.
