Avatar 4/25 10:29pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Did you all miss Courtney last week? The Good Doctor did a fine job filling in, but we belatedly discovered that he obtained his medical degree from a rogue, uncertified physician's academy and does not carry malpractice insurance. Any litigation threats and injury claims should be forwarded to Ken Freedman.

I see you have one of those twin-anode tubes in your hat, Ms. Pancake. What's that one for?
  5:06pm Listener Robert:

Full wave amplifier? Or are you just glad to see us?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm ultradamno:

So there is a girl Fablio now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm ultradamno:

By the way, as if the lead-in of Fablio isn't damaging enough, my sources are telling me the station has brought in murdered Arizona muckraking journalist (the murdered ones are notoriously the most dangerous at their job too) Don Bolles to go undercover in "Sheila Juggling Room" (I don't know what that is) to find dirt on Courtney using some glam-rock alias. So threatened is the station bigwigs by the prospect of a Courtney run WFMU. Sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm HyperDose:

She didn't even offer to make room for Courtney. Even Fablio is courteous enough to do that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm George Washington Bodenheim:

Boogie down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm rrg:

I didn't hear a station ID, either, from the girl Fablio.

Now we know why CHILLcoin tanked. Codgercoin was made to strip Ken Freedman of his self-proclaimed "chillionaire" title.

codgercoins are large wooden disks with a buffalo on one side and the codgers face on the other.
  6:13pm The Butterman:

I just claimed to myself that listening to WFMU is my hobby. There I said it. That, and collecting collectible baby doll advertising. It’s true. As for the actual dolls ( not the adverts) I only have 2. Well actually 3. Baby William and Double Trouble ( two monkeys, boy and girl. One named Double, the other, trouble). So three really.

Ultra: That is a very young Gus in that picture. That was him in 1953.
  6:16pm The Butterman:

That’s fantastic. I tell people that YOU were my student. You’ve always been a perfect person and student and artist and bla bla bla, blech!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Gus gave me two Codgercoins in exchange for my next four commission checks. I can't wait to take them to the bank!
Avatar 6:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Euneeda, in the next mic break, Courtney will explain how he uses Codgercoin. He's elated to have crypto in his crypt.
  6:18pm yippie:

codgercoin wont be bad for the environment if its powered by wind up victrolas

euneeda - maybe you can get a bersted model 71 toaster for opening a new account.

Aww shucks :') I've got nothin' but fond memories! (And for the record, I can vouch for the baby doll collection--it's all true!)

Sam Ulano is great! Never heard him before. He reminded me of Mickey Katz.

I just saw Citizen Kane is now ranked below "Paddington 2" on something called "Rotten Tomatoes". Damn snotnosed youth culture.

Word of caution: Don't try and buy a nickel bag on Avenue D with codgercoin.
Avatar 6:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Management of WFMU is demanding that Courtney return to broadcasting from Jersey City. They gave him a deadline to cease hosting the show from his poutin' shanty in East Orange.
Avatar 6:33pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Time was when Courtney would load up a stolen A&P shopping cart with 78s and push it along Route 280 from EO to JC just to host the program.
  6:35pm yippie:

nice i bet he found a lot of extra victrola needles on the walk over
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm dale:

pandemic has proven you can host from even a sears pouting shanty with a free cat. i say be damned to the traffic and parking - where can one park a studebaker in jersey city anyway?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm rrg:

WFMU has a teeny tiny parking lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Ike:

Another DJ on FMU used to play "Drum's Fairy Tales (The Three Bears)" sometimes. His name was... let's see... Ivan maybe? Ismael? Ernst? Ingmar?
Avatar 6:38pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Do you mean Irwin, Ike? He used to host a show on WFMU in the 1990s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm spodiodi:

Edwin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm spodiodi:

oh, right, Irwin!
  6:39pm Laura L:

The management's feeling the threat of Courtney's pending takeover--Lolabelle, don't let him fall for this ruse--barricade the poutin' shanty!
Avatar 6:39pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney thought Irwin was a knave and a poltroon.

Someone just informed me this was an anthem of co-dependence, I told her she's a dependent and to shut up.

bea arthur sounded like sophie. i think she liked a different pleasure though.
  6:43pm Listener Robert:

A "long goodbye"? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Ike:

I could've sworn his name was Irving. He was definitely on later than the 90s though. I'm sure he was on as recently as '03.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm ultradamno:

Are you sure it wasn't Neville? I seem to recall a Neville.

I just read a biography of Ben Hecht, and he had a friend, a dissolute poet named Max Bodenheim. Any relation to Gus?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Oh- there's a book about Uncle Ben? He wasn't our uncle, he just asked us to call him that. He asked me, anyway.
Avatar 6:50pm Lolabelle Pancake:

All Bodenheims appearing and mentioned on this program are related to Maxwell.
Avatar 6:51pm Listening Out There:

Uncle Ben probably called you Euneeda Niece, eh?
Avatar 6:51pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Other than for Euneeda, Maxwell was something of a "template" Bodenheim. Blame him for everything that Gus became and continues to be.
