Listener comments!

Somehow I think she's talkin' 'bout more than barbecue.

"Saucy", or "dry rub"?
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:04pm Carson "Row Row" Robison:

  Tue. 10/23/12 8:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"Running out of time"? Gee, that's an understatement!
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:10pm Artie Schermerhorn:

Bow Wow !
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:10pm Danne D:

Thought this was "Play with your Putin'"
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:11pm Cy Burless:

Are you related to Cornelius Edison, who invented the speed bump?
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Codge on!
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Only if your band name is Poodle Riot :)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Always like to hear Marion Harris!
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:23pm Matt from Springfield:

And these old reefer songs! I have several myself.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:24pm Danne D:

lol Matt :)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:27pm Danne D:

Regarding Coolidge:
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:28pm Danne D:

Full disclosure I don't agree with the politics of the person running that particular blog :)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:29pm Matt from Springfield:

An "olid Codge"
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:30pm Danne D:

1920 Harding/Coolidge songbook:
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:32pm danny venture:

  Tue. 10/23/12 8:34pm danny venture:

blind boy fuller can be a real happy pill
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:36pm Danne D:

Btw, the first campaign to use direct mail apparently was recently deceased George McGovern:
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:44pm Contemporary Politicking Report:

The Presidential debates wrapped up last night, still leaving much to be desired; Cleveland spoke for merely 7 hours, and McKinley still refused to elaborate on his plan for confronting the German menace.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Butterbeans & Sushi? ;)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:46pm Alison Porchnik:

You should have seen what he did to the hens on his poultry farm.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:47pm Danne D:

Contemporary Politicking Report must be the Fox News of its time as Cleveland never face McKinley in an election ;)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:47pm Alison Porchnik:

Ecker that is.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Clarabelle "The Stinger"--must be the 29th last of the Red Hot Mamas or before.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Evenin' Alison!
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:49pm Danne D:

WFMU needs more Claves :)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:50pm Contemporary Politicking Report:

Mr. D: I do not verify reports, I print whatever Ol' Man Hearst instructs me to print.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:50pm Danne D:

I swear this sounds like a 90-year old version of the Greasy Kids Stuff theme (the part before the vocals)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:50pm Cy Burless:

How does TOC make his voice do that?
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:52pm Alison Porchnik:

Evening, Matt... If that is your real name. (No sign of the slandering lurker tonight I guess.)

Dinner is overdue. I'm absconding from the list for a sandwich.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Before my time, unfortunately!
I see that claves are what I believed "castanets" to be--castanets are circular and held in both palms.
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:53pm Danne D:

wow a Gallagher name check. I knew he was old but damn!
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@AP: Don't worry, that's not me. Evidently that was a repeat offender who occasionally crawls out of his hole. (How old is he? Is he the same scallywag who used to post libelous handbills about Courtney Edison?)
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Tonight was a delight, but alas it comes to an end.
Pick up your hat from the check girl, and I'll see the Codger next time!
  Tue. 10/23/12 8:59pm Artie Schermerhorn:

Thanks for taking the bus to JC Courtney. See ya next time. And Clubfoot says howdy and wants his $3.00!
  Tue. 10/23/12 9:00pm Timb:

Great show Codge!
  Tue. 10/23/12 10:09pm Van Up:

Best ever Nick Lucas (he doesn't sing).
  Thu. 11/1/12 9:29am Jacob Destree:

Thank you, Codger. Lucille Bogan is the best; I wonder if I can find a free download of some of her stuff in the Free Music Archive?
