What? Hello? Who's there! Is that you, Phyllis? I demand to know! Please. Someone. I think there's a demon in my earwax.

What with all this lightning, I sure hope you're using the wind-up Victrola tonight!
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@10 Flower Dog Water: Wind up transmitter, too! Which as I understand, is about how old our East Orange transmitter is...
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Hit me now!
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:14pm Van Up:

Bix Lives!
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:14pm Milfay Chinky:

That Codger -- no groove is safe from his stylus!
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:15pm Malachi:

I can really bob my head to this. Also, will you be my mate, Courtney?
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Indeed! Blessed is he who pix the Bix!
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Amen! Stay big, plump and Red Hot, Sophie!
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:19pm Matt from Springfield:

"many a Sonny Boy has tried to climb upon my knee"!!!
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, Lord Kitchener. How noble.
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Classic Calypso and Hard Bop references--careful, you're stepping into that Mr. Chusid's territory!..
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:25pm Droll:

The Codger was broadcasting smoke signals with his stogie when Irwin was still in diapers.
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:29pm Matt from Springfield:

If you a Viper!...

No illegal space aliens, no Free Silver!
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:30pm Honeybear Sweeney:

The Codger once whispered in my ear that if he can't take it with him, HE'S NOT GOING! (ok, he didn't whisper that last part)
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:32pm Matt from Springfield:

But this playlist is yeller!!
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:32pm Floradix Hundwasser:

I don't think the Codger has gone for at least two score years.
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:35pm Red Butler:

Floradix: The Codger still has full bladder control -- as he often tells complete strangers.
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa--ancient melodies of Cochin-China or the Malay islanders?
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:37pm Droll:

One of the best parts of the Codger shows are instead of Googling an artist only to find all the links go back to WFMU, nothing turns up at all. Somewhere there's a scroll or clay tablet that says what Nanja Raho is...
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:40pm Matt from Springfield:

I carved "Site:WFMU.org Nanja Roha" into clay, I'm waiting for the search results.
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:42pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Fats!!

Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:46pm Matt from Springfield:

So long as it's just about wonderful--hi Mike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 8:46pm Mike East:

Hey Matt
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Ola, coelacanth!
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:47pm Droll:

ME, Fats is a freakshow -- all that showmanship and chops to spare... They sure don't make them like that, anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 8:48pm coelacanth:

Hi Matt! Hi everyone!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 8:52pm coelacanth:

This is great! ..but i missed Sophie Tucker?
-oh,well i'm definitely going back to the beginning of this show later.
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Good man - people die, crazy bitches go to jail, but friends are forever.

Astrophysicists are close to discovering one of the enduring mysteries of the Cosmos--just how old IS Courtney T. Edison?...
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Seniormost Hank Williams!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 8:59pm Mike East:

I just read an article about wfmu and when I finished, the next article to read was titled "Mind Your Own Business..."
  Tue. 7/15/14 8:59pm Van Up:

I'm inspired. Gonna go play some 78's now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 8:59pm Mike East:

just a strange synchronicity there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 8:59pm JakeGould:

Showed up late. Miss anything?
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes, Bruz's music is most queer, or unusual...
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 9:00pm Droll:

Thanks, old man! Go get plushed! You deserve it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/15/14 9:00pm coelacanth:

well,as a creature with traceable pre-historic ancestry,i could relate some pre-industrial revolution stories...But i wont,since he's my most intimate friend.
Avatar Tue. 7/15/14 9:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jake: With Archives, you'll miss nothing!

Many thanks to the Old Codger! Keep playing these old 78s!
