Listener comments!

Avatar 2/10 3:00pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Just an advance notice that Courtney will be returning to the airwaves from his poutin' shanty this week. He discovered that Gus Bodenheim, last week's guest host, was promoting his own literary endeavors on the show. Gus is now being invoiced for commercial airtime, which will cost him more than he was paid to host the show.
Avatar 11:08pm Pierre Delecto:

An elderly Russian gentleman who fled the USSR told me that civilization began to decline when men decided to go without hats.
Avatar 2:23pm Gus Bodenheim:

This is a veritable knife in my proverbial back. I shall have to contemplate my response to this affront over numerous libations, as per usual.
  2:57pm Listener Robert:

That was as nothing compared to their decision to go without heads. We see the results all around.
  3:02pm Listener Robert:

Judging by Ms. Braun's parting gesture, it would appear Flabbio is now catching it from both ends.
Avatar 3:08pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Gus, I don't want to get between you and Courtney. The only thing worse would be getting between you and a bottle.
Avatar 3:17pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Or between Courtney and a live mic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm rrg:

The best hour of the 168 hours in the week will soon begin.
Avatar 5:31pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney thinks that Hearty White has the 2nd best show on WFMU, and that all other shows are tied for 100th place (there are no programs in 3rd thru 99th place).
  5:31pm Laura L:

Lolabelle, you may needta contact Euneeda for advice if things get rough between Gus and Courtney. She might know of just the right lubricant to apply in such a sticky situation.
Avatar 5:32pm Thursday Night Fodder:

Hello Lolabelle and Bold Lodger. Bring on the eats.
Avatar 5:33pm Thursday Night Fodder:

A bold, very old, lodger that is a codger that is, of a shanty that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm G:

Those two women in the picture get paid less than $18/hr for sinning? Hard to believe it's not pricier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm HyperDose:

Yodeling for chump change are we?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm ultradamno:

It sounds like Fablio had yodeling playing at the wrong speed with all the board effects on unintentionally. The man is clearly on the cough syrup
Avatar 5:53pm Jennica:

Hi everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm ultradamno:

Fablio is going to have to declare "I am not a cat" during the mike break to explain this set and I doubt he'll be able to establish credibility
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm G:

I suppose Ethel Waters can't hold a candle to Ghédalia Tazartès.
Avatar 5:59pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This afternoon's WFMU visit to Mt. Misery is finally coming to a close.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm HyperDose:

Lolabelle single-handedly fixed the transmitter. Never send a party girl to do a woman's job!
Avatar 6:02pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Now Courtney will accompany us as we ascend Mt. Cranky.
Avatar 6:03pm Otis Fodder:

Heart palpitations are being raised. Climbing Mt. Cranky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm dale:

is the yodeling meter ready to be pegged by the silky voice of elton britt extolling the sexual prowess imbued upon him by his patent leather boots?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm loveless:

Bernardo or Tequila?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm common:

Avatar 6:07pm Mailman Tom:

Welcome back, Courtney!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm HyperDose:

He filled them with tapioca and sent them back to you, didn't he, Courtney?
Avatar 6:20pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Otis, if you are suffering from heart palpitations, apply cats to the affected area.
  6:21pm Vern Heartburn:

Hello folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm G:

Man, I've been dragooned into attending a zoom meeting this exact hour with people (Walt Isaacson, Donna Brazile, etc.) supporting a congressional candidate to replace Cedric Richmond as the New Orleans US House representative. I'd rather hear Fabio, let alone the Codger.... :-(
Avatar 6:25pm northguineahills:

@Pierre: i knew the fall of civilization started w/ that Canadian New Wave band!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm G:

OMG, now Stacey Abrams has logged in to talk on this zoom I have to be on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm dale:

how come the mean ghosts in casper had heads with floppy tips like pillow cases?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm ultradamno:

I understand Hot Stuff was actually quite shy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm dale:

he was the original captain in the ghost and mrs. muir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm dale:

....focus grouped poorly.
  6:30pm BH:

being dragooned into a Zoom meeting sounds like less fun than the time I got to drive a truck in a parade because I was standing in the parade area and the vehicle owner knew me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Alison Porchnik:

A political Zoom call with this playing in the background doesn't sound so bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Alison Porchnik:

The dialogue is certainly apropos
Avatar 6:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Dialogue in Flip films was always a bit "understated."
  6:32pm Vern Heartburn:

hadda brooks was cool wish i coulda seen her tv show
  6:33pm Davefrom Brooklyn:

Hey Codgers, happy codgering. Hey Jennica
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm HyperDose:

They really telegrammed it in
Avatar 6:34pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This film about mind-altering drugs pre-dated the Hayes Code, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm G:

@Alison: Thing is, the person with me who is very into this zoom needs to have audio incoming and outgoing, so I can't stream this Codger audio. UGH. Archive later...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm G:

Predated Refer Madness by a few years...
  6:35pm BH:

extra notes on my parade story: I was driving an Excursion, which is described as an SUV, but it was drived from the F-250 pickup truck. Also I looked vaguely like the candidate whose sign was on the truck so parade attendees in cheap seats may have thought the actual candidate showed up and drove a truck. He won the county, so if it works, it works.
Avatar 6:35pm Lolabelle Pancake:

G — Courtney signaled that you should tell those people to GO GET PLUSHED and leave you alone. This program is far more momentous than any meeting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm G:

We are getting a preview of the congressional candidate's campaign's dreary first tv ad now. So thrilling.
  6:37pm BH:

G: With the correct donation, you can help him/her air that TV ad in New Orleans *and* Baton Rouge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm G:

@Lolabelle: At 5:30pm in New Orleans, I keep looking to see someone tippling on their zoom feed. Unhappily, all I see is a bunch of beige wall backgrounds. BORing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Alison Porchnik:

Sounds punitive.
Especially the required unmute
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm G:

@BH: The person here with me who is into this zoom thing can donate. I waste my donational $$ on FMU lol. It cost her $500 to drag me to talk to the Louisiana governor 2 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm G:

Thank g-d it just ended. Music back on finally :-)
  6:41pm BH:

It feels like $500 is actually a lower price to talk to the Governor of Louisiana than it was in some administrations. Not sure how much Edwin Edwards would have charged when adjusted for inflation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm rrg:

You missed Wilmoth Houdini! And more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm G:

Edwin wanted a cut for those casino licenses, for sure -- just leave it on the desk and he'd put it in a box in the closet.
Avatar 6:43pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney recently took part in a political protest. He helped topple a statue of Arthur Godfrey.
Avatar 6:43pm Otis Fodder:

Lolabelle Pancake, what does Courtney think of Jackie Gleason's string conducting prowess?
Avatar 6:43pm βrian:

Looking for Lolabelle Crêpe. Is s/he here?
Avatar 6:44pm northguineahills:

@dale: ghost hoods didn't go well in the wash (I think you know what I'm insinuating).
  6:44pm BH:

toppling a statue is even more impressive back then because statues used to be a lot heavier during the WPA
  6:47pm GListener MW:

And people were weaker!! Ever try toppling a statue on an all-gruel orphan diet? It’s tough.
Avatar 6:47pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Marvelette Whirlicue™ is another fine product of Delbarton Automotive.
  6:48pm Davefrom Brooklyn:

That's what some of the people in Dallas, November 63 said: Gee! Gordon Liddy
Avatar 6:48pm Otis Fodder:

Immediately after this program, I will set off to F. W. Woolworth Company and purchase my very own Marvelette Whirlcue. For myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm HyperDose:

What on earth would you need 10 syringes for? Who would you feed with that many turkeys?
Avatar 6:49pm Mailman Tom:

George Formby every week!
Avatar 6:49pm Jennica:

I so love that Euneeda. Nicely done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Listener Howard & the Cats:

George Formby every week! - Seconded!
Avatar 6:51pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The Beatles stole all their riffs from George Formby. Courtney read that somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm ultradamno:

This title makes spellcheck angry
  6:51pm Laura L:

"Do you whirl?" could be the headline for a wonderful advertisement for the Marvelette Whirlicue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm ultradamno:

That was a very cutting story
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm G:

Ame No Blues = Rain Blues (Japanese)
Avatar 6:58pm Otis Fodder:

I really liked that swimmin' with the kitten song. Thanks Codger and Co.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm HyperDose:

Thank you Mt. Cranky...I mean, Courtney! Be well Lolabelle!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm radioronan:

Thanks Codger.. thanks Lolabelle.. thanks skeletons..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm rrg:

Is that all? It's over already?

Oh, well. Thanks, creators. Bye, all.
  6:59pm Vern Heartburn:

Thanks Codger!
Avatar 6:59pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This will soon be the "old" national anthem. Courtney wants them to pass a law making surface noise the national anthem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm G:

Now flip the transmitter switch off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm rrg:

Surface noise and static both!
Avatar 7:08pm Jennica:

Thank you.
