Hello, Old Dave. I read your comment to Courtney, and he thinks that's the catalog and matrix numbers for a very obscure Green Bros. Xylophone Orchestra alternate on the Okeh label. Can you confirm?
Avatar 1:23pm Dorabelle Pancake:

I have never been spanked. I don't need it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm ultradamno:

Apparently, the management have changed things up in the playlist leading up to Courtney's two hour extravaganza. Something called Blurred & Obscured is on now, a clear act of sabotage to throw off Old Codger listeners who expect clear and precise programming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm G:

TOS-EULA updated. Pay attention.

No, Morrie's Coney Island. All music field recorded from shops and games along the Boardwalk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...um - two hours ? ...could we, maybe, open a window a little bit @ some point here?...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm G:

OC going after Fablio here.
Avatar 7:10pm Seedy:

spank me hard, you misogynistic low lives.
Avatar 7:12pm Lolabelle Pancake:

It's Morey's Coney Island. Hosted by Morey Gertz. He's not here tonight. He's visiting Fablio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm G:

E Flat is not exactly a guitar key.

@G That's right. Morrie is there with his reel to reel all day, every day

@ultradamno: It weighs 57 pounds. Quite the lug.

before we get into the third half of the show can you tell us the antidote to the sly weasel while we're still upright?
Avatar 7:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The antidote to Sly Weasel is 48 hours of sleep and a month of sobriety.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm dale:

well, i'll just be sick then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm ultradamno:

That scoundrel Tom Waits mined this single track for material for years.
Avatar 7:19pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Since tonight's show is 2 hours, we hope you've all socked in a supply of Sly Weasel and some Rancho Malario "ceegars." By 9pm we should all be thoroughly plushed to the scuppers.

I was 90 miles from Cuba last week, Key West, visiting relatives staying there. Lots of Cuban cultural influence there. -- I'm finally home in New Orleans till early next year. I've been away 8 week of the last 11. Sometimes cuts into OC/WFMU board time.

...and an empty bottle for the necessities that will arise from that Sly Weasel imbibing.

DO NOT CONFUSE WHICH BOTTLE IS WHICH. Though I hear, second hand, that second hand Sly Weasel will still get you drunk..

I;m late to the spank talk, but any of you ever her Spanking Bozo, Detroit's answer to Flipper?

Cuba Libre, or Rum and Coke, invented by Teddy Roosevelt after decades of exhaustive laboratory testing, not just haphazardly putting in whatever alcoholic substance and sugar water was handy, as you might expect.
Avatar 7:36pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney claims that Lord Invader invented the rum & CC.
Avatar 7:36pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

The euphemised version! Originally, instead of 'They make Trinidad a paradise' it was 'And they give them a better price'; and it was just 'Both mother and daughter', emphasising the type of business being done—not even a man as low on the totem-pole as a calypsonean would dare mention male prostitution, not even at Carnival, so limiting the mention to women made clear what was going-on.

—and I'd known the song for ten years before, in a forehead-smacking moment, I realised that the Coca-Cola were the Yankee men, the rum the Trinidadean women the rum, making the drink a metaphor for 'race'-mixing—I'm pretty sure I've heard one early version where it was 'they mix rum and Coca-Cola'.
Avatar 7:41pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

I mostly just know Blind Blake's "Diddie wa diddie", neat to hear his style I love so much in that song, in another.

Lolabelle please don't make fun of me- I was just offering another funny ad to the show now current.
I worked at the Blue Ridge Institute when they had absolute tons of these old records in the late 70's and suggest you make friends with it's Director, Roddy Moore.

Courtney was confounded by "free jazz." He said, "Jazz should never be free. It should be kept under lock and key. It should never even be eligible for parole."
