Avatar 7/19 4:43pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This is Courtney's LAST SHOW—of the month. Next week WFMU blues-tootin' bon vivant Matt Fiveash will attempt to fill the Codger's leatherworn shoes (or likelier he'll bring his own). Courtney will be enjoying a restful retreat at New Jersey's own Wawayanda Hot Springs Spa. They always offer a 25% senior discount this time of year because very few Jerseyans want to visit the hot springs in summer. Courtney is contrarian (and cheap) as usual.
Avatar 9:15am Davee:

Take me with you!
  6:56pm Laura L:

Psst, Lolabelle--if Courtney slips into his huaraches and leaves his leatherworn shoes at the shanty for Mr. Fiveash, a discreetly placed bottle of Dr. Scholl's Foot Powder nearby might go a long way toward enticing Mr. Fiveash to fill those shoes again when Courtney's headed Wayayanda way again next summer.

Stop! Courtney Time.

Can't touch this. Unhygienic.

Enough Mind Control. Let's get the real show on the road.

Did Shakespeare write that?
Avatar 7:02pm Lolabelle Pancake:

It was written by Aloysius Flimflam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm ultradamno:

I hear Fiveash can get cranky, but Courtney level ornery? I am skeptical.
Avatar 7:03pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Matt can throw a tantrum, but Courtney can throw Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm G:

Does Courtney have any idea why Matt shut down his comment board and erased all the comments, on 1/15/2020? haha. Don't answer that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

I heard about someone who used the Xervac on his...special area. His hair was long and lustrous but it gave him a hernia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm G:

Euneeda: Are you saying the Xervac s*cks?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

I don't know about these things. Well, in all honesty it was my brother. But you didn't hear it from me!
Avatar 7:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Don't we with thin hair have a ...head start on nude flesh ??
  7:10pm ShelbyG:

Listening to thunder & storm rolling in. Perfect with this show. Thanks, Courtney!

Euneeda: lolol Zeeervac

Seems like Andy B. could use one of those in his masturbatorium. I mean, his den.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Franco Twinkie:

I'm a paranoid rancid hippie, but a least I'm not bald. As a matter of fact, I have more hair than Cousin It.
  7:15pm Listener Robert:

Wait a minute...Ms. Pancake, is that a Xervac under that hat? I wondered what the antenna was attached to....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm G:

Reginald Foresythe Orchestra? Sexy name.
Avatar 7:19pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Mr. Foresythe was quite the dapper gent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm rrg:

She's so good, this Etting dame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm G:

Avatar 7:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...don't be gaslighted - the Reginald Foresythe Orchestra was full of Registered Felony Offenders on the lam...Musicians I swear...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm G:

Will we witness Willie Whopper?
  7:23pm Listener Robert:

ShelbyG, where are you that a storm is approaching?
  7:24pm ShelbyG:

Montpelier, Vermont. Apparently it’s a biggun.
  7:24pm Listener Robert:

Just don't swallow your face again, Codge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm ultradamno:

Still kind of stunned to hear Courtney suggest some of the name DJs aren't bad people. Were lawyers involved?
Avatar 7:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...up in North NewEngland we get the little tail ends of everybody's storms ...but sometimes they combine...
  7:26pm ShelbyG:

Twinkle twinkle lil Twinkie ♥️
  7:27pm Listener Robert:

Are you getting the smoke up there too?
Avatar 7:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They were noting up on Mt. Washington, NH (it's tall) that they even smelled the Western smoke...
  7:30pm Listener Robert:

Day before yesterday I smelled wood smoke here in the southern part of WMFU's listening area, went outside to look to make sure this house and the neighbors' weren't on fire, saw no source though the wind was from the west. I hadn't considered long distance transport!
Avatar 7:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

[...pokes head out of trap...]
Yeah - hazy now you mention it...
Avatar 7:33pm Mailman Tom:

No more blue skies
Avatar 7:33pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Despite the prohibition against smoking in the studio, Courtney lit up a Rancho Malario Supremo. So it's hazy in here. I can barely see to update the playlist and type these comments. {cough cough}
Avatar 7:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oh maybe that's it...

Formby Fanny, ut oh

That Uke solo is smokin
  7:39pm Listener Robert:

Huh...I see for the first time I can clicky-star the playlist image. I've downloaded some, but never clicky-starred one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Hey Shelby! It's raining fire in L.A. Consider your self lucky.

WOOT. Flippin' thuh script.

Courtney "flip"ping off the mgmt co. lawyers.
  7:43pm Listener Robert:

With a title like that, this sound track should draw comment from Mark Hurst.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm ultradamno:

I missed that opening music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

"Technocracy" was a utilitarian ideology that some people thought could save the world in 1931, it was kind of fascist but less warlike. It was parodied in "International House" by the vaudeville duo named 'Colonel Stoopnagle and Bud' as 'Stoopnocracy'.

None of the above is fictional or a joke, but it is pretty funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Troymo:

Perfect soundtrack to eat beans on toast to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm McGroovey:

Paul Whitman + Raymond Scott ? Cool.
  7:55pm Listener Robert:

Is Technocrat Leach a...uh...Technocrat?
