Welcome early birds, whether you're a canary, duck, cockatoo, mynah, macaw, or Lutino Indian Ringneck Parakeet.

mockingbird?
Avatar 6:40pm Lolabelle Pancake:

We've read all the listener feedback and are eager to please. Tonight's Philco Cheap Cigar Boudoir will be jam-packed with commercial announcements! Never say that the Old Codger doesn't take requests.
  6:51pm Listener Robert:

Is that someone we know in the picture?
  6:52pm Listener Robert:

Like someone very familiar with drums?
Avatar 6:52pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Robert, I asked Courtney, and he replied with a huff: "Yo' mama."
Avatar 6:53pm Lolabelle Pancake:

I don't know if he means my mother or yours. She doesn't look familiar, and I don't look like the kid in that photo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm dale:

the great gabbo! stroheim know his ventriloquism.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm loveless:

I'm dancing by myself with a drink in hand. Great opener! Hello all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm ultradamno:

I see some hipster record label is trying to undercut Courtney's action with some comp of the first Japanese 78s! sublime-frequencies.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm ultradamno:

...and all digitized, no less! The infamy!
Avatar 7:04pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That's a criminal enterprise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Is there a doctor in the house? I took one of the new Delbarton boosters and now I can't taste or smell, except for sometimes a faint whiff of Roquefort cheese if I close my eyes real hard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm G:

So you're saying there are lots of fruitcakes at WFMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm ultradamno:

CHEAP?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm dale:

i'm not a doctor euneeda, but i played one once on the dumont network. if you have catarrh i can help.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm ultradamno:

They let them vote nowadays! Even the DJ ones!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Dale, I don't know. Does catarrh taste like Roquefort?
Avatar 7:13pm Lolabelle Pancake:

I'm content being playlist administrator and comments forum moderater. I don't feel compelled to be a lady DJ. Of course, I have my talent agency to keep me busy, The International House of Pancake.
Avatar 7:14pm HyperDose:

I've said it before and I'll say it again...this is Codgerrific!
Avatar 7:19pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is still miffed that he was overlooked in the balloting for the Radio Announcer of the Year Award and that the honor went to Gus Bodenheim.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm dale:

euneeda, it mostly tastes like creosote. so if your lungs are needing a little preservative ignore me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wull Hullo. Been a minute since I stunk up the Poutin' Shanty ...well, yours I mean...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm G:

I can't help but think there's some subtext to this Lil Johnson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm G:

Stop the steal, Courtney
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There's never any Transparency in Radio. It's completely Oblique.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm G:

Courtney has a great face for radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wouldn't know ...I listen in the dark...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm dale:

medical center theme is this old?
  7:27pm Corey in Tempe:

Gus Bodenheim 2024. That is all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

What the hell. We'd know what we're getting...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm ultradamno:

It's a good mixer i2.wp.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm dale:

we need more of this kind of music on the station. not more hippy draft dodger stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

12Strings instead of 6. That's twice as much Blooz as other people...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm ultradamno:

A staple of exorcisms, to give the ghosts a checklist in order to understand their predicament
  7:36pm Old Dave:

Hard to resist the medi-spirits...
Jack You're Dead is an old fave
Thanks
  7:37pm Listener Robert:

Darn, now you went and done it...I so miss Rich Conaty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm dale:

the big broadcast!
  7:37pm I do love diversity:

Eh?

Ca caw old sport. I misplaced my favorite spats so I shan’t be bending your ear. If only I could find my cheaters.

Artie Shaw is a swell young kid. He’s a good egg.

Look out for that Spanish Flu now. Off to have a Gasper. Go chase yourself!
Avatar 7:38pm Mailman Tom:

Rich Connaty was terrific
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm PigeonsAndRust:

Gosh, was it five years ago today Rich passed?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm loveless:

Rich Conaty, crying now.
  7:38pm Glistener MW:

This song is woefully inaccurate for me personally; the people I meet in my dreams are right bastards. :<
  7:39pm Listener Robert:

I tend to meet cartoon characters and broad comic players in my dreams. In the past week alone I met Mr. Magoo and Shemp Howard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm G:

Fats? Little? They sure knew how to name entertainers back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oddly in the synch with the celebration of 1981 just listened to on the Drummer stream...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm DjLorraine:

1st Linden tree song of the day!
Avatar 7:42pm Mailman Tom:

The NYT gave Rich Conaty a front page obituary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm loveless:

@G All we have now is Lil (not even the full little) — Lil Wayne, Lil Uzi, Lil Kim, on and on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

& yer not Fat ...yer Chonky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm ultradamno:

Some self-respect is in order. My gosh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm ultradamno:

Elocution skills of the announcer of the year in full effect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm G:

The feds are not fond of money laundering.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm dale:

antique phonograph mac had him and dawn at dawn from wvkr on his show at the same time. it was a videostream and mac had a plaid suit on. rich asked 'does that suit come in a husky?'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm dale:

is this people like us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm G:

People paid to have this record on hand to repeatedly listen to deliberately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm rrg:

This is a classic from Courtney's long-ago radio programs.
  7:50pm Listener Robert:

Was the stuttering added, or in the original?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm loveless:

A glitch in the matrix?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm ultradamno:

Well, Courtney's show has never felt more at home on this station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm rrg:

It's not People Like Us. It's..I won't say but it's a great thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...talkin' 'bout that G-g-g-generation. Warned 'im about those Delbartin vasodilators.
