This week's Philco Cheap Cigar Boudoir is gearing up to be a fabulous showcase of musical wonders and commercial propaganda. However, Courtney wants me to remind all listeners that it is AGAINST THE LAW to record the program. You can only hear it once—when broadcast. So please tune in punctually at 7pm Eastern Tuesday.
Avatar 7/11 6:56pm
Lolabelle Pancake:

And to be perfectly honest, the penalties for recording a copyrighted radio show aren't that severe. Most of those convicted of this federal crime, with time off for good behavior, are paroled in less than three years.

Lolabelle Pancake:

To further clarify: by "most" we mean well over 50%. So your chances are good.
Avatar 7/11 7:56pm
Lolabelle Pancake:

P.S. When I say "your chances are good," I'm not suggesting that you commit this crime. It's your choice—whether to commit the crime or not.

N.B.: These clarifications are being posted at the behest of WFMU's legal counsel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm

It's clear that you're choosing your words carefully, Lolabelle, and it's obvious why. Courtney is your employer and your client, but to protect his interests you sometimes have to kowtow to WFMU management, whose unsavory agenda often diverges from Courtney's. But we think we know (we think) what you're really saying here. We understand and sympathize.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm

I thought FMU only had illegal counsel.

Shaw's lazy susan, at Ayot St Lawrence, Hertfordshire. Was there as a kid in the 70s; it was tourable even then.

Twain has a similar gazebo type backyard building that I saw in Elmira in the 80s; I think it's since been moved to the nearby college campus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm

Eps can play.

more like george barnyard shaw with that shack...

this show is a paradox because you play 78 rpm records like theyre going out of style but 78s could never go out of style

I think she's Roché rather than Roche.

I think Betty has trouble. And might consider speaking her mind less.
Listener Robert:

Going to have to stream this on that newfangled Internet thingie, because WMFU right now is too heavily interfered with by Florida stations on 90.1 by sporadic E skip. Say hello to your (temporary) Florida listeners, Codger!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm

Maybe if you listened on 91.1, the REAL frequency, it would be a better experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm

The BEST frequency.
Laura L:

Lolabelle, I suspect WFMU's legal counsel may be quietly trying to protect listeners from potential litigation from Rummy Delbarton if Gus Bodenheim's advertisements were to be recorded for unauthorized later enjoyment!
Listener Robert:

Quite possibly 91.1 is above the Maximum Usable Frequency for this opening. Alas, I'm outside the East Orange listening area.

Listener Howard & the Cats:

Lolabelle, I burn all my MP78s of the Codger's show to "DVDs", and as soon as I can find a chimpanzee who can pedal fast enough to power the DVD player, I'll be all set.

Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...' When radio began growing in 1921, early stations found that live musicians sounded much clearer over the air than record players did, so few if any played records. The record industry and musicians’ unions were still nervous enough to encourage US President Herbert Hoover to outlaw the playing of records on air, which he did in 1922. Hoover’s reasoning was that the public airwaves should be used for the public good, which included creating jobs for musicians.
However, the record industry still had serious fears that people would just sit at home listening to music for free without ever buying a record again. Concert promoters had similar fears: in Boston in 1924, a famous violinist sold 3000 tickets for a huge concert which a radio station later announced would be aired live. When ticketholders heard this, more than half asked for their money back. This incident may have been more indicative of a temporary “radio-mania” than anything else, i.e. an exaggerated conviction that radio would replace everything, kind of like how some people in the 90s believed that email would replace postal systems. Cooler heads understood that radio couldn’t replace the experience of a live concert, and that music listeners would always want the option of choosing what songs they listened to. '...

What can anyone say that hasn’t already been said about Willie Whopper?

This soundtrack features the wonderful song "Hell's Bells."

Is this Bluto?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm

Like Flip, this is more overlooked/forgotten Ub Iwerks work. He got forgotten after doing a lot of the work getting his partner Walt D off the ground.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm

No dirty old songs yet. WUT?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm

'His music was...repellent' lol

I never thought I'd live long enough to see Fablo awarded the Strange New Respect Award.

It's true! If anyone is in touch with Fablio, please tell him to call Courtney (his phone # is 6). We have a job offer.

Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

I'm sill getting WMFU with no problems on 91.1, but starting a few minutes ago, my HD Radio started to try locking onto a digital signal from a KSMU. Actually just stopped right now. Station's in Springfield, Mo. Just started happening again. I guess this is like tropospheric ducting or e-skip?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm
Rosey is Listening on 91.1 MHz:

I see Listener Robert said he was also having problems, but on 90.1 and out of Florida. Interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm

The Trio is only very mildly suggestive lol
Listener Robert:

Very unlikely to be a tropospheric opening at that distance, but that's a typical distance for a sporadic E skip on VHF.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm

Brox Sisters, I meant. The playlist was a bit ahead of the music for me...
Listener Robert:

Skip clouds typically move northwest by west at these latitudes, so the cloud between NJ and Fla. has probably moved on to between NJ and Mo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm

@LR: Don't weather systems normally move west to east in the US, not east to west?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm

potato fantasy 🏆 the real mvp
Listener Robert:

If you were to draw a line on the map from Gainesville to northern NJ, the skip "cloud" (dense pocket of ionization) would be approximately halfway. Move that point NNW, and you'll see how that happens.

G, weather systems are in the troposphere, skip is in the ionosphere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm

thanks for the jumping radio party, Courtney and Lolabelle!
Avatar 8:00pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

TY Mr. CE !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm

So you're saying the ionosphere moves in the opposite direction from the troposphere. OK...
Listener Robert:

Yes, G, and much faster!
Listener Robert:

Sounding rockets from Wallops Is. have been used in recent years to probe the wind at those altitudes. In the past week there've been 2 rocket flights from Wallops to detect the electric currents up there.
