Welcome to the Old Codger show for today. Since we were ordered a few months ago to broadcast from the WFMU studios in Jersey City, rather than in our preferred location—Courtney's poutin' shanty in East Orange—we refer to this and recent shows as "remote broadcasting."
Avatar 12:49pm Davee:

Well, I am glad you are broadcasting either way
Avatar 5:39pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Gus Bodenheim will debut a new feature on tonight's program. He's attempting to move beyond announcing commercials. This will be his first shot at biographical profiles of little-known musicians.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:01pm G:

Still in New Orleans Hurricane Exile that morphed into an improvised road trip a fortnight ago. Stayed outside Ashland, KY yesterday, traveled US60 and passed through Winchester and Lexington, KY today, and then we're in Louisville to see friends for two days starting tomorrow. Then maybe home via family in Nashville next week. But still working online every day -- some work, some driving, some seeing stuff along the way, every day. Long days... Up at 6:45am to work this morning, so we could get driving at 10...

Hello all. I read an informative article about the American sect of Hollow Earth Believers based in (you guessed it) Florida: www.messynessychic.com...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:02pm ultradamno:

A Gus Bodenheim "Behind The Music" style featurette? I'm eager for this.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:04pm rrg:

"Little-known musicians" to us, perhaps, but probably not to Courtney, who knew them all.
  7:04pm Glistener MW:

!!! I listen to Fletcher Henderson alllll the time and for a brief moment thought they stereo had switched over to one of my CDs
  7:05pm Old Dave:

The Pouting Shanty is inspiring my garage renovation right now. Need a place to sit and stink, right?
Many thanks for your inspiration.
  7:06pm Glistener MW:

!!! Thanks, loveless! This looks incredible - reading now
  7:06pm Laura L:

Gus Bodenheim likes being behind those featurettes in the Poutin' Shanty, doesn't he!

Courtney! Lolabelle! Everyone!

This Taco Tuesday feast is mid range. Scored some steam table soup and vegetables at the hippie market in Port Townsend. Munched a mushroom burrito from El Kiosko in Oak Harbor hours ago. Next I am going for Pop Tarts at ferry terminal vending machine.
  7:08pm ShelbyG:

Hi Courtney & fellow codgers 🥳
  7:09pm ShelbyG:

This is perfection.

The death scene room from Officer and Gentleman is down the street. There is a motorcycle parked in front of it.
Avatar 🎸 7:12pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

Zeppo was a fine comedian and sometimes subbed-in successfully for Groucho. Before summoned into the act (when Gummo was drafted for the Great War) he worked days on the Ford assembly line and at night used his car-making skills to help him steal cars…so it's no surprise that he became a good agent after leaving the act.

He was a much better romantic lead than any of the saps the Brothers employed after he left.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:12pm ultradamno:

Did I hear "suppose there's no bacteria"? Ambitious, but a double edged sword of a wish.
  7:12pm Glistener MW:

Oh man, “Suppose” is a classic! I remember Rory Gershwin composing that one during his infamous “futon-in”

I never understood why anyone would want feet just like a cannonball.

Ford had assembly plants all over the country for a while. Many in CA including Richmond.

The Germans sent early radar sets to the far north to test the
'World Ice Doctrine', but no dice for the Infinite Ice.

Avatar 7:15pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Euneeda. Your brother Gus did a fine job profiling the tragically overlooked Rory Gershwin.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:16pm ultradamno:

If the cannonballs were able to roll maybe, like wheelers.

Thank you! I fact-checked!

Not sure how that inside-out horizon jibes with what I see myself ...& a closed system probly make climate change even graver ...well, atmosphere does that anyway. Nevermind...
  7:18pm ledzeppelinsucks:

What time of week was the highest quality build at a US auto plant? Tuesday late morning or Wednesday afternoon?
Avatar 🎸 7:19pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

I can't remember what I read: I think Zeppo worked either in Detroit or in Camden, N.J..

I can't find it now, but I see that I misremembered the story, and the facts are even more credible: Zeppo was a _mechanic_ for Ford, and throughout his life was a tinkerer and inventor. Someone who fixes cars is in a much better position to learn how efficiently to steal them than someone on the line.
  7:20pm ledzeppelinsucks:

What day of the week is the highest suicide rate at the Foxconn cell phone factory? Would you want to Tweet on a phone that was the last task someone did before killing themselves?
  7:21pm ledzeppelinsucks:

I want an app that tells me who killed themselves that put labor in my phone.

...well, ledzep ...it *could* make a great episode of TwilightZone...
Avatar 🎸 7:24pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

I'm pretty sure it was either Monday afternoon (hope springing again in their breasts!) or Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday, _terrible_. Friday morning o.k., Friday afternoon bad, people skipping-out or slightly drunk.

I once went to lunch at a burger place that served a lot of linemen working for A Major Phone Company. I was appalled at the amount of drinking, only later realising that most of them had already finished work for the day.

Perhaps this young man was suffering from Jake Leg.

He wouldn't have this problem if he used a mechanical pencil!

If anyone wants to call Eula Hazelhurst and give her some "heat," she's had the same phone number since 1897. It is "43."

Uh, as it turned-out, he could write just fine, but his woman preferred the mechanical pencil Texas Guinan bought her for their 'kaffeeklatsches'.

By the way, regarding Rory Gershwin's "Suppose," Gus notes: "Yep, him and 7th wife Ono Udont, fresh from the controversy around their album Two Vermins."

There has to be haunted cell phones. There are billions of them and many people have died in them.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:38pm spodiodi:

Murakami, here in San Francisco, CA and surrounding towns, there are plenty of similar signs (nor sure about people bored by them), but this one really stood out. i didn't have my boring phone with me so no boring picture, but when i take oune, i'll remember to send it your way. my apologies!
  7:38pm The Butterman:

ShelbyG, hopefully you saw the Hank segment on Ken Burns’ Country Music doc. I was balling! So moving!

@The Butterman Balling or bawling?

"monstrous cranium resting atop her shoulders" has ruined me. I will now spend the next 20 minutes wiping Sly Weasel off the computer.

Grampy, who helped to instil in me the faith that scientific and technological progress were the only really useful ones—not sufficient as in the cartoons, but necessary, since our low-tech history has been a nightmare.

…and sometimes Betty covered his face with kisses.
Avatar 7:48pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Murakami, we do not use the "c"-word around here. It's a Major Motion Picture.
  7:52pm The Butterman:

Loveless, oooop! Didn’t even realize that! I was bawling! Not the other thing with the testicles and such! I made a whoopsie!

You mean, as in 'I once had a boss who was a feckin’ cartoon.'

the whispering jack smith doc that miramax released back in the late 90s was really great, huh

@The Butterman Balling means living big, full of money, rich! (I knew you meant the story tugged at your heart.)
