Listener comments!

  Tue. 12/4/12 8:08pm Quiet Here:

Quiet Here here. Where's the noise?
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Quiet Here You just BROUGHT it!!

Howdy Codger and 78 fans!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:12pm Matt from Springfield:

That cat's a cad!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:12pm Loud Lou:

Anyone seen my ruckus?
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Settling in the Boudoir with my own Rancho Malario and Sly Weasel.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:19pm Van in DC:

I'm new here (this show, etc). Hi.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:20pm G:

This reminds me of a certain insurance ad.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Howdy Van!
The Old Codger is the oldest DJ on WFMU -- by a long shot! He fills in occasionally.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:22pm Matt from Springfield:

And hi there G! :)
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:22pm Van in DC:

Ah, thanks Mr Matt, and howdy!! Always a pleasure to see you, as it were, on the playlists :)
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:22pm G:

Hoover and Smith -- a 1928 election song -- I never knew Herbert and Al sold vacuums and cough drops, though
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:23pm Van in DC:

I'm not sure Matt from Springfield even sleeps... :)
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:24pm G:

Matt is a bot :P Mattbot!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:24pm G:

As techs say: It's not a bug, it's a feature
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Why thank ye, Van!
@G Don't know what kind of in-jokes those were. The mention of oil earlier prob alludes to the Teapot Dome scandal.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:26pm G:

They took 45 rpm out of the 78s and made 33s. Clear devolution.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:27pm Matt from Springfield:

RCA Victor probably screwed the pooch on the (Earth) surface noise.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:28pm Van in DC:

So about to go lay down on couch and will surely fall asleep but will have FMU streaming on to be there with me as I pass into sleeeeeeeeeeep.... I should do this more often :)
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:29pm G:

@Van: Back in the 1930s depression people also used music to escape the woes created by poor policy choices :-)
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Pleasant dreams Van! At least with THIS melody you'll get them!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:30pm Matt from Springfield:

FATS!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:31pm Mike East:

I've been falling asleep listening to radio static because it calms my daughter. at times, I think I'm listening to one of the "stranger" shows on WFMU.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:31pm Van in DC:

G, Matt, Old Codger person, and everyone else, good night, I'll be still listening in.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:32pm G:

nn...
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:32pm G:

The Man I Love: classic tune, classic performer
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Say, would the Codger have anything by Skip McCullup & the Ennui Inducers? They played and sang ragtime songs, but in reverse. And this was before people figured out how to reverse a phonograph!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Night Van!
@Mike Like white noise!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:34pm Matt from Springfield:

This is pretty non blue for Sophie Tucker!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:38pm Mike East:

exactly, Matt. Knocks her right out, and keeps her there...for a while anyway.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:38pm G:

Blue enough for ya yet, Matt?
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:42pm blossom:

yoohoo, courtney! just an old flame rarin' to spark things up once more. will you ever take me back?
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:42pm Matt from Springfield:

The blue always comes through!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:42pm Matt from Springfield:

It's blossom, dearie!
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:43pm G:

The old codger in the alley with a blackjack.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:44pm Radiola 18:

Hey old man, do I have to dial a 1 before that 6 ?
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:45pm G:

You have to tell the operator the number you want to dial.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:46pm Matt from Springfield:

And wait to be connected, then shout out "Ahoy ahoy!"
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:46pm G:

In bourbon veritas.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:48pm Radiola 18:

The line is busy ...
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:50pm G:

The operator is canoodling in the moonlight with courtney, that dog.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:52pm PP Perkins:

UNCLE GADJOS!!!!! You really were a bagpipe star! Sorry I didn't believe you all those years.
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:52pm Radiola 18:

Courtney is the original ladies man
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:53pm G:

Little-known trivia: "My City Was Gone" is based on "My Ohio Home".
  Tue. 12/4/12 8:53pm Luigi:

Courtney is plushed to the scuppers tonight.

  Tue. 12/4/12 8:57pm Radiola 18:

  Tue. 12/4/12 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

  Tue. 12/4/12 9:00pm G:

  Wed. 12/5/12 12:40am Van Up:

Ha! Your surface noise explanation got me laughing out loud. I remember once when I was a kid my little brother asked "When did everything turn to color?" Long live Sophie!!
