Was the Celestinal Express a Trolley?

Twice within a week. About time you had a regular gig again you old fool.

Intestinal Express?
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 8:08pm Droll:

It is nice to have the old fool back, shame we had to give up Bethany's show though. Ahhh, the "hey you kids" rant!

en.wikipedia.org... - 78: "With 3 distinct prime factors 78 is a sphenic number. It is an abundant number with an aliquot sum of 90. As a multiple of a perfect number, 78 is itself a semiperfect number."

Courtney, sounds like you're up for a little Chino-Latino, eh? (It's a very popular cuisine in the Big City.)

The Codger knows what they say--prob because he's said it all already, many years ago too.
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 8:28pm JakeGould:

Hey, can you play that lovely spanish lady Lydia Mendoza again? I like her. Ruth Etting is good now? You know what these ladies got that you you don’t? A healthy digestive system because they are not cantankerous & bitter.
  Mon. 1/6/14 8:28pm Beans:

I wanna hear the one about the chopsticks!
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 8:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Ruth's one of my faves of the Old Time 78s.

There is something wrong about this song but I am not too sure what it is exactly.

Sheet music for Blinky, Winky, Chinky Chinatown
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 8:38pm Droll:

I prefer the crispy 78 sound to the restored CD sound. 78 surface noise sounds "older" than 45 and 33 surface noise, but not as old as drifting AM radio noise.
Avatar Mon. 1/6/14 8:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Makes you dig your kicks on the MALLOW side!
Makes you 9 foot tall when you're 4 foot 5"!
