On tonight's program, Courtney will provide further details on his plans to BUY WFMU and turn it into a station for grown-ups. Euneeda Bodenheim will celebrate National Poetry Month, and Gus Bodenheim has a great plan to secure your financial future AND help you sleep better.

I'm sleeping better already, knowing that this is coming. But I've set my alarm so that I'll be up in time for tonight's program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm G:

F. is currently playing something called Unearth Noise. He makes satire difficult.
Avatar 5:01pm HyperDose:

Does this mean that the shiny new fire escape will be torn down and replaced with a dumb waiter for Courtney's cocktails?
Avatar 5:31pm Pierre Delecto:

I knew a guy named Kip Mouseley. Same one?
Avatar 5:35pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney knew Kip the Frog. Different guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm G:

F. closing with "Some Velvet Morning" -- a hipster classic that Courtney would scorn...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm loveless:

Is that Zazu Pitts & Gibson Gowland?
Avatar 6:00pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Yes, it is, Loveless. Courtney took that photo along the Hudson in 1923.
Avatar 6:00pm HyperDose:

C'mon Fablio, get yer butt outta that seat and MAKE ROOM for Courtney!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm ultradamno:

Elbowing into our time again, hippie!
Avatar 6:01pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Gowland was quite a concertina virtuoso.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm spodiodi:

greeting, Courtney, Lolabelle and grown-ups
Avatar 6:02pm Lolabelle Pancake:

We're keeping score of the broadcast minutes stolen from us by Fablio. We will ask for compensatory airtime in the closing weeks of this schedule.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

For a second I was alarmed at what was playing at 6:00

Hi everyone!

So begins the "Are Misbehavin' " hour...

Hey Jennica!
Avatar 6:04pm Jennica:

I, too, noticed that Fablio went long.
Avatar 6:04pm Jennica:

Nice to see you here, Hyper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

There will be a reckoning, Lolabelle, and you're the one to do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm G:

He needed those extra minutes to squeeze in Some Velvet Morning.
  6:05pm Miss G:

So happy to see ZaSu Pitts there. This is the only place I can tell that I got for my birthday Sophie Tucker's signed autobio "Some of these Days." It is FAB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm ultradamno:

When it adds up, I look forward to the four hour Courtney show to make up for it.
Avatar 6:06pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney heard that "Velvet Mourning" song and was confused. He thought it was one of those infernal "mashups" the kids are talking about.
Avatar 6:07pm Jennica:

Good thinking, ultradamno.
  6:08pm Laura L:

Fablio was in Studio A--I guess it went to his head! Young people are so inconsiderate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm dale:

this is some real music. not that einstein sauerbraten that fablio was distressing our ears with.
  6:08pm P-90:

Cole’s French was pretty good
Avatar 6:08pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This Porter recording took place in the Codger's bunker. Courtney is turning the pages on the sheet music.

Such a brisket craving is a pre-existing condition for me.

Everyone is slamming Fabio today
Avatar 6:11pm HyperDose:

@Jennica You too, the Shanty just ain't been the same without ya!

It warms my heart to be remembered so fondly, Hyper.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm G:

Ken sells out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar 6:13pm Jennica:

I'm so excited for you, Courtney, to own WFMU!
Avatar 6:13pm HyperDose:

Oh snap, he's shaking down the chillionaire himself!

That's MP78™
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm G:

Ken starts out as a tough negotiator
  6:15pm Miss G:

I think you mean "Swiss" retirement account re: Ken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm ultradamno:

There's a whole beatnik month?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm ultradamno:

I prefer a sarcastic fix, personally.
  6:18pm Miss G:

Thank you Euneeda you really made my day. Wallace Stevens indeed. Alas.
Avatar 6:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That was LOVELY, Euneeda! She reads poesy with such passion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I prefer an angry Flip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Webhamster Henry:

That was some fine poetry there!
  6:20pm Glistener MW:

!!! Koichi Sugii - my favorite Japanese composer of all time. Thanks, O.C.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

That last couplet was a little token from Gertrude Stein. I think she called it an amoose bouché
  6:21pm Andres:

Good afternoon. One might have to employ the tactics of Daniel Plainview towards a successful acquisition.

This guy had a rad grandma
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Doug in JC:

Try the snail, dale
  6:22pm Glistener MW:

My favorite thing about “Everybody Eats...” has always been that it harkens back to a simpler time when people were actually named “Mandrake”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm ultradamno:

Is there escargot for Flo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm dale:

a pail of snails?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

I'm kind of scared to go to his house, honestly
Avatar 6:25pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Nothing rhymes with Fablio. He's not invited to Cab's buffet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Doug in JC:

I was talking to an Agnes on Flickr the other day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm spodiodi:

Dirty Mister Formby

FreeFormby Raydeeo !
Avatar 6:37pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney heard that some guy named Paul McGartney stole all his songs from George Formby.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm G:

Exactly, Lolabelle -- that northern UK working class music hall thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Definitely a groundbreaking use of Melody there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm dale:

george''s brother homer formby made it big in the stain and spar varnish business. but george tells that he was a pig around the house growing up.
  6:39pm Glistener MW:

That I’m thinking too, Lolabelle “Mandrake” Pancake. Sounds like some atom-age commie laser thing, personally.

Walter Gross composed the standard "Tenderly." And played wild boogie-woogie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

Before I have to make a quick bike trip to CVS (don't worry, I'll have the portable radio for the very end of your show), I just wanted to say that the show has yet again been hilarious and with such cool and historic music. Appreciate it all so much as always, and what a treat from Euneeda! All of these characters coming over my radio, along with the music, seems to me to be about the closest I could get to classic radio, before TV. Speaking of which, my brain is working overtime here, so I'm gonna get back to what I was doing. Trying to enjoy the show over the air while watching PBS Newshour, also over the air, all of which I know Courtney appreciates. Dale also got me good with the Dumont reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's less BluRry wth the change of one letter is my understanding...
I'm waitng for Max Geldray on BluRay

MORRICONE! Ecstasy of Gold! I just recorded the whole Dollars Trilogy recently. Morricone made those movies even more amazing. Cool stuff all around, Gus. I guess I got a little distracted from the product you were actually selling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm spodiodi:

what brand of chewing tobacco (or related product(s)) used that in it's ad campaigns?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm ultradamno:

I am very agreeable today.

They're playing boogee woogee music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...did W.C. Handy appropriate Blues from poorer people? Maybe - but he also got his name because he knew where every restroom in Europe was... Yerknow - Props...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Hello Courtney. As a collector of social security myself, I must commend you on your fine choice of musics from before car stereo. I am so tired of the way out sounds that the youngsters feel it necessary to play at top volume while out driving around looking for drugs and consensual sex partners. I like to stay home, but I still need to leave the house to every now and then to buy stay-dry underpants. What is your opinion of this 'singer' Madonna that had everybody loosing their collective wits? I think she needs to put on more clothes, but that's just me I suspect.

So so beautiful. I'm in tears. Thank you Courtney and Lolabelle. I'll lock up the Shed when I'm done.
Avatar 6:58pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney knows that Ken has a price. His commitment to this fraudulence called "free-form radio" is linked to his bank account.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm G:

Ken drives a hard bargain.
