Codger Efficiency. This board is already open Tuesday evening.
Avatar 3/3 1:32pm Davee:

I was here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03am Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

My hunch is that Courtney may have a few feelings and choice words about the fundraising marathon and the other deejays on this here radio station, so my hunch is also that Lolabelle will have to have her finger ready on the trigger to bleep out Courtney's foul and unsavory language like last week.
  12:38pm Listener Robert:

I'm thrilled that the marathon hasn't even started, yet they've already got over $135,000 pledged!
Avatar 1:26pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Sorry I'm late, everybody. Looks like we have a full house — er, shanty. On tonight's show: Flip's Big Typo, Sophie's Big Box, Gus's Big Sausage, and Courtney Big Mouth. See you at 6.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm zopa:

Surely there is something in the Delbarton product line for those threatened with heart trouble? A tincture, liniment, or salve?
Avatar 5:20pm Lolabelle Pancake:

You're welcome, zopa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm zopa:

Indeed. Perhaps I should take a seat for a while... Thanks Ms. Pancake.
Avatar 5:26pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That's MISS Pancake to you. And to everyone else. I'm not one of those feminuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm rrg:

Checking in. As soon as Fablio is gone I’ll turn on the radio. I’ll have to guess when he’s gone because my radio is turned off. Perhaps some kind soul here will let me know.
Avatar 5:37pm HyperDose:

Is the Poutin' Shanty at fire code capacity? Should I saddle up and take myself to the Sulking Shed?
Avatar 5:38pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Fablio has threatened to undermine Courtney's fundraising efforts next week. Says he's going to suck all the money out of the Thursday audience by 6pm. We take this threat seriously. Because one of the things you can be sure of about Fablio's show is that it sucks.
  5:46pm Listener Robert:

Right now the cut Flabbio has on sounds like when Carl Reiner as a Western bad guy on TV got when he said, "Pianist, gimme a little of that dudludludludludul...."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm ultradamno:

Oh, like the tone deaf rapscallions and general ne'er-do-wells who confuse failure with strength can match the donating power of pouting pensioners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm ultradamno:

Right now the "man" is playing what sounds like kittens on a piano.
Avatar 5:48pm HyperDose:

What if each of us makes a scavenger hunt that leads to buried donation money? I bet Courtney relishes a good challenge!
  5:49pm Listener Robert:

Do kittens play that just before the outlaw shoots the sheriff after stalking him the whole film?
  5:51pm Laura L:

Lolabelle, why don't you entice Fablio to step out onto Petulant Porch and Courtney can lock him up out there for the duration of the marathon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm ultradamno:

A bit of honey pot chicanery, eh?
Avatar 5:58pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Ever notice how often Fablio closes his show with a dinky little 60s pop song to prove to the kids he's "with it"?
Avatar 5:58pm HyperDose:

Absolutely abhorrent behavior. Fablio is no chameleon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm ultradamno:

Thinks we in the pouting shed will think he's been playing actual singing of a song is something he's been doing the whole time. An insult!
Avatar 6:00pm Lolabelle Pancake:

LL: Fablio should be locked in the Insufferable Hipster Hatch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm ultradamno:

Apparently he was playing "Nocturnal Emissions" earlier. I shudder to think of what that indicates.
Avatar 6:02pm HyperDose:

TRUSS? Do you hear these dirty lies?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm dale:

hello. has anyone seen my spats?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm WR:

what the hell, how did i get here. was in the progressive playlist of the brilliant Fabio and then blip the app blonked and what's all this yellow and squeaky old violin sounds.
  6:03pm Listener Robert:

For the hernia he got carrying all those 78s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I truss they've heard Honeysuckle Rose...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm chresti:

Is it true you wear trusses?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Old Codger! Now there's a name you can truss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm ultradamno:

78s, a format to be trusted, not some newfangled "non-fungible token" thingy.
  6:07pm Miss G:

I hope all y'all Courtney fans are actually dancing as I am (OK I didn't dance in Fabio's show, I stared out the window.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm ultradamno:

I thought that last one was a "book"
  6:11pm Listener Robert:

I'll take mine unleaded, please.
  6:11pm Miss G:

"Kitty on Toast" is a popular toy in Japan, do a web search. I have many toys in my house that are foods, ready to be eaten, and somehow happy about it. (ie Gudetama)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm dale:

standard oil has a good frankfurter. rockefeller was a weiner man i hear.
Avatar 6:12pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That commercial originally aired last year during the holiday season. But Gas Station Brand Hot Dogs™ taste great all year round. They were the frankfurter of choice at Yankee Stadium last year. This year they lost the concession.

Could Gus Bodenheim be the reanimated voice box of Alan Maitland?
Avatar 6:13pm HyperDose:

@Miss G Rilakkuma reigns supreme in this home!
Avatar 6:15pm Pierre Delecto:

When does the John Philip Sousa revival start?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm dale:

lolabelle - the yankees got cheap and told folks that a slice of white bread was the only roll they'd get due to a baker's strike. but really they were in the pockets of the tip top bakery people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm rrg:

Alan Maitland? That’s a name I haven’t heard in a long long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm dale:

tip top bread and rolls - now with 5 percent less ash and silica.
  6:19pm anders:

old codger, verily i did hear i you voicing meat product advertisements during a Braves spring training broadcast on 680 The Fan
  6:20pm anders:

the secret's out, mean old codger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Webhamster Henry:

Oh Goodness Gracious Me!
  6:22pm Miss G:

Oh gosh I love Genevieve Tobin so much! This lured me from the kitchen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm WR:

Miss G, I'm with Courtn... I mean Mr. Edison on this Kitty on Toast thing. i was tempted by you to search and am scarred forever by what I've seen.
  6:24pm Miss G:

Ah, ha ha WR! I have a magnet on my fridge a friend sent me from Japan, of a piece of smiling toast in a toaster. I mean, what is that?! (re: Greta Keller, just today I said to someone "and don't be stingy, baby" OK that's not her)

I love how Flip the Frog translates in any language. He truly is an amphibian of the world.
  6:30pm Miss G:

I'm very spaced out from Fabio's show. . .are we talking about teh great Junior Durkin?!
Avatar 6:31pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The credits for this film were written by a man who had nothing on his mind but his hat.
  6:31pm Laura L:

der Dummquatschenderfrosch!
Avatar 6:32pm HyperDose:

@Lolabelle I can hear how hollow his head is! So clever they used him as a drum to cut down on instrument rental costs.
  6:32pm Listener Robert:

Are these Vitaphone discs? Is that how the sound tracks are so well preserved?
Avatar 6:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The guy saying "Aw, nuts!" That was Kip Mouseley.

Gish had just played Princess Alexandra in One Romantic Night and was looking for a challenge.

what a great song. now i'm dancing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm dale:

is this clarence williams the third's grampa?
  6:48pm ?:

OK, I'd pay to hear this in the Marathon: Fabio yelling at Courtney, _in Italian_ and then Courtney tries to answer, but Gus Bodenheim interrupts and reads from a book, <A nutty kind of a book. Do you know that the guy says that machinery is going to take the place of every profession? > *sigh* poor Kip.

Kip the Lush worked with Flip the Frog
Avatar 6:49pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

That was a bowdlerised version of that Formby song. The original, the second[?] verse:

A girl while bathing clung to me and shouted-out 'O!'
She cried 'Good sir I‘m drowning, but you‘ll save me, I know.'
I said 'Well if you‘re drowning, would you mind letting go…'
'…of my little piece of Blackpool Rock!'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm G:

What could they do at home, anyway?
Avatar 6:50pm Jeezuseffinchrist:

this girl is singing my SAWNG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm ultradamno:

Hmmm, maybe that Swift Taylor girl should cover this...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm dale:

ever play any little rose marie codger and or his handlers?
Avatar 6:52pm Jeezuseffinchrist:

wait there's a newer Sophie Tukker and she does pretty scandalous songs of similar themes lol
  6:53pm Miss G:

dale, didn't you just plotz to learn that little rose marie was the same from the Dick Van Dyke show?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm dale:

yup miss g. she was so cute back in the day. then they hired her to make buddy look handsome.
  6:54pm Miss G:

Jeezuseffinchrist I really like Sophie Tukker that song from the Apple commercial
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The New Dylan.
Avatar 6:55pm Jeezuseffinchrist:

she's got a few cute little numbers, I like her too
Avatar 6:55pm HyperDose:

Thank you Courtney! Lolabelle, you hipster! Courtney was surprisingly calm this week. I wonder what you slipped in his drink.
Avatar 6:56pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is trying on his good boy pants so people will pledge during his show next week.
Avatar 6:56pm Lolabelle Pancake:

He'll explain why in his final mic break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm G:

Courtney is saving energy for his marathon shows. He's solo both marathon weeks -- scared away any cohosts.
Avatar 6:57pm HyperDose:

Must be buying those Good Boy™ pants a size or two larger to fit snugly around his truss.
  6:57pm Miss G:

I made it through the show! But my supper is burned! Thank you Mr. Edison and MISS Pancake!

The whole show I've been driving with my "new" Orthophonic Victrola Consolette, and I just got home. Seriously! Thanks Codger, all!
Avatar 7:00pm HyperDose:

I'll gladly spare a few coins for WFMU, but I will NOT donate to that sham of a sister station, WMFU (the direct stream to the Sulking Shed).
