Evening, Codger!
Just how do you calibrate your spitefulness? With a balance scale?

Fats Waller! That's one 78 they didn't throw against the wall yet! (What about "Elephant Walk"? Monty Python used that as the stereotypical intermission music).

Great show, Codger!

If there was an All-Codger, All The Time radio station, I would NEVER SLEEP.
