Listener comments!

  12:29pm Listener Robert:

The Old Codger should consider codging on the new Steamr Radio, where they appreciate the established hits like he plays. Available as of today in Sheena's Jungle, under new management.
Avatar 2:46pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Robert. The Codger is currently prevented from broadcasting on any other network due to a grandfather clause in his WFMU contract. However, on tonight's show he will prove that he has other options—and other opportunities!
  5:05pm Listener Robert:

Is tonight's program sponsored by someone selling some questionable liquid in an alley?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm G:

Apparently Fablio is thinking today that he can out-sexist the Codge with his playlist photo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm G:

@Lolabelle: In the OC's case, isn't it a great-great-grandfather clause?
Avatar 5:17pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Have any of you received the new breakthrough Delbarton vaccine? Gus Bodenheim will be making a breakthrough announcement tonight about this medical breakthrough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm G:

@Lolabelle: Is there a free bonus surveillance microchip? I got my second Moderna on Monday, and they rooked me out of my chip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm HyperDose:

Last breakthrough I saw was Courtney driving through the eastern wall of the pharmacy. He must have been aiming for Gus.
Avatar 5:54pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Oh, dear! I just made the mistake of turning on Fablio in the poutin' shanty. He was playing what sounded like a recording made at the gates of Hell. Courtney threw a fit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm ultradamno:

He playing some hippie singing about being set free now, looking forward to being Fablio free in a few minutes.
  5:57pm Laura L:

Oh, no, it's some underground music again from Fablio--typical!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm G:

Underground is closer to the gates of hell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm loveless:

Fabio said his last show and I rejoiced. Then he followed that it was his last show from home as he was returning to the Jersey City studio. Pooh. Hello all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm HyperDose:

I love a good train euphemism
Avatar 6:03pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Fablio is overdue at the Gates of Hell.
Avatar 6:04pm Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

Cool start to the show. Like a cross between Codger and Vocal Fry.
Avatar 6:04pm Rory:

LOVE this song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm listener 126464:

Heroes of the Blues
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm ultradamno:

Hell will be a lateral move for him, they'll just usher him into another booth where he's doomed to keep listening to the music he selects.
Avatar 6:05pm Mailman Tom:

"Viola Lee" was a signature song of the early Grateful Dead
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm dale:

the gentleman in the kodak brownie print is offering the immigrant fellow a beverage with a brain parasite i believe. that's how you keep your 2 dollar a day position in these times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm G:

@ultradamno: Their plan is to put his entire history of archives on loop for him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm HyperDose:

Isn't the point of a bunker to not let anyone know where it is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm G:

It's heavily fortified.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Alison Porchnik:

I think he just likes to bunk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm HyperDose:

More fortified than his soylent meal replacements? That's impressive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm G:

Courtney enters the world of private equity sharking.
Avatar 6:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...brought my jug !! Is the song over ??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm dale:

more cliff edwards please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm G:

or a lewd Formby tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm listener 126464:

Gus will probably be trying to auction off his old NFTs.
  6:11pm JBoogie:

Courtney, I sent you another box of raisins for the pledge drive. Did you get them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm dale:

i wouldn't wish cal stewart on people, though.
Avatar 6:13pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney can't wait until he's the proprietor of this mess o' pottage known as WFMU and he can turn it into something elegant and jewel-like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm ultradamno:

WFMU is overdue for a nice smooth stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm HyperDose:

@ultradamno I hear there's a pill for that
Avatar 6:14pm Lolabelle Pancake:

There's a rumor going 'round that Fablio knows how much money Courtney raked in during the fundraiser and that he's going to snitch to the IRS. Such perfidy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm G:

Smooth, like WPAT AM in NYC 40 years ago. I thought their whole audience had died off.
  6:16pm Colleen:

Love love love this show!!
Avatar 6:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney has long suspected that Fablio is an undercover government informant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm dale:

is that the station i turned on one night and it was radio disney? he was a hitler sympathiser!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm ultradamno:

Playing with the effects of those noises on hipsters has MKULTRA op written all over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm G:

@dale. Disney radio was further right on the AM dial later than the 1980s. WPAT was 930. I think they do leased time broadcasting in various Asian and other languages nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm dale:

yeah - what were the call letters of the american standards station? it was around 1310.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm HyperDose:

So is the Poutin' Shanty the bunker, under it, or on another premises?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm ultradamno:

When I think diseases, I think of Gus
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm G:

@dale: Maybe that's WNEW 1130 -- 30s and 40s music mainly, back in the 70s/80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm dale:

how many chimpanzees and homeless people gave their lives to give us this magic bullet?
  6:27pm Laura L:

Thank you, Delbarton! Just in time!
Avatar 6:27pm Lolabelle Pancake:

A little jab'll do ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm rrg:

"A little jab'll do ya." Just so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm G:

"Our lab, your jab."
  6:28pm Listener Robert:

What makes you say so, Laura? Were you scheduled to receive one of the quack nostrums instead?
Avatar 6:29pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Get the double-dose twice. That's known as the Jab Four!
  6:29pm Laura L:

I was going to try Courtney's method, but now I'll go for Delbarton--a name we can trust.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm ultradamno:

I understand the failed spanish flu warned covid off Courtney before it ever crossed the ocean
Avatar 6:30pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Let Delbarton Labs usher you to the Gates of Health!
  6:30pm Listener Robert:

Laura, didn't it make you suspicious when your appointment was scheduled for a funny knock at the back door?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm G:

C# minor is just E major with a different tonic note. Super easy for musicians to work in.
Avatar 6:31pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Delbarton Industries — Disproving the Adage that the Customer is Always Right Since 1961!
  6:32pm Bandicoot:

Maybe we could hear a Jabbo Smith recording
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm G:

The Customer is Always a Losing Plaintiff™
  6:33pm P-90:

My cousin Velvert got that Delbarton shot, he said two days later his buttocks broke out in itchy, swollen hives.
I might hold out for the Pfizer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm dale:

G - it was wqew, 1560 according to the googlepedia.
Avatar 6:35pm Floradix Hundwasser:

I took the Delbarton vaccine last week and for some reason I'm suddenly craving halvah
  6:36pm Listener Robert:

Dale, that indeed is where I remember Radio Disney. The former WQXR.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm G:

@dale -- I think I never got quite that far up the AM dial, would always stop somewhere else first lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm dale:

it was great to put on and fall asleep to.
Avatar 6:37pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Floradix, one of the side effects of the Delbarton vaccine is a craving for brisket. Did that happen?
Avatar 6:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

High praise for radio by any standard.
Avatar 6:38pm Floradix Hundwasser:

No, Lolabelle, just the halvah. But I haven't had my second dose yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm HyperDose:

"...weird" haha
  6:39pm Listener Robert:

In 1990 I was driving in the vicinity of Scranton, and a nonidentifying AM station was running Disney programming continuously without IDing. Turns out that was a new station testing whose call, location, and even frequency I've forgotten.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm dale:

nicotine fingertips and a desire to dye your thinning hair is also a side effect of the delbarton vaccine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm ultradamno:

He was this cheerful for only those ten minutes ohmy.disney.com...
Avatar 6:42pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Fuzzy Wuzzy the violinist was one of the earliest "outsider musicians."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm G:

"When the Disney studio was removed from the Oswald series and several of its animators departed to Winkler, Walt Disney and Iwerks created Mickey Mouse." Iwerks was seminal in developing Mickey, and when he and Disney had a falling out, Iwerks went elsewhere and created Flip. All very incestuous...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm HyperDose:

@Lolabelle So he was from Buffalo Grove, not Chicago?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm ultradamno:

Oswald's legendary libido was what gave rise to the phrase "getting lucky"
Avatar 6:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Spike Jones wanted to volunteer @ the vaccination center but his name was considered inappropriate.
No such qualms here with Free Formby radio.
  6:53pm Listener Robert:

I wonder if R. Crumb has that Robert Crum in his collection.
Avatar 6:57pm Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

Loved the show tonight! I was always a big fan of Disney. Raised that way since I was little. Now that's a company that knows how to make a buck!
  6:59pm David F:

Love Red Norvo! Thanks you for a great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm HyperDose:

Thanks Courtney and Lolabelle! I'll lock up the Sulking Shed before I go.
  6:59pm P-90:

And if you speak fast and don’t pronounce “Ub Iwerks” carefully, his name can sound like “up yours”
Avatar 6:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

G - with all those animals was that incest or bestiality ? ...I'm confused but I have been told I have 'cartoon morals'...
Thx Codger ! Enjoy getting plushed to the skushers or whatever that is...
