Listener comments!

Avatar 11/14 10:43pm Lolabelle Pancake:

"Unfortunate" is a very vague term.
Avatar 11/14 11:02pm Lolabelle Pancake:

And this alleged "incident" took place far from station premises.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11/15 2:33pm zopa:

A murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a conspiracy of lemurs... what do we call a group of marble playing dandies?
Avatar 11/15 7:14pm Lolabelle Pancake:

A "wonderfully-got gathering"?
  5:14pm Listener Robert:

Is it marbles season yet?
  5:17pm Bandicoot:

A tinkle of pianists? ....a grudge of old codgers?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:02pm ultradamno:

Did Fablio attempt to gain entry into the poutin' shanty?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:02pm D Rok:

Evenin' Miss Pancake. Hi friends.
Avatar 7:03pm Mailman Tom:

Do children still play marbles in modern day America?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:03pm PigeonsAndRust:

A day without Lang and Venuti is a day without sunshine
Avatar 7:04pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Good evening, all! And the rest of you.
Avatar 7:04pm Montrealer:

I think I'm losing my marbles....
Avatar 7:05pm Juli:

Still recovering from the horrid last hour...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:05pm PigeonsAndRust:

Rockin' in Rhythm is so amazingly modern for 1931. Good evening Miss Pancake, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...see - put a Gittar paddler with a Fiddler - & they think it makes sense to diddle melodies not chords. No regard for the fate of Jazz Banjoists...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm PigeonsAndRust:

A Fistful of Chuck Mangione
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm ultradamno:

Sounds like they've ruined it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:09pm ultradamno:

I mean all the chuck-fisting "coming" in non-sequential order was part of the charm
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:12pm PigeonsAndRust:

One wouldn't want to get tome-main poisoning, after all.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...how can you be in tome places @ once
- when you can't hear anything @ all...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Sonderangebot:

Now, that's what I call literature.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

... 'Lit' for short, as it were...
Avatar 7:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

A Fistful of Chuck is being produced as an AUDIOBOOK on a series of 78rpm discs.
  7:18pm GC in Baltimore:

Brew Moore. Nice. Isn’t he the one who died by falling down a flight of stairs after having had his usual too much to drink?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...if you want me to invest in that - 1st you have to speak to my Mangione...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I don't know how I ended up with him - just a flugel...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm PigeonsAndRust:

I wanted to be wonderfully-got, but instead I've been had
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:23pm PigeonsAndRust:

Ooo, one of those Soviet 78s. I think I have three different 78 albums of Red Army fighting songs
Avatar 7:25pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney has a soft spot for Commie waltzes.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Sonderangebot:

Poor Little Rich Girl, now that's a good book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I'm partial to the Raymond Scott interpretations of Carl Stalin...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm G:

OC is a past master at blameshifting.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:30pm G:

Sustainable means tolerable ("I can sustain it"). Yes, the smart shanty is tolerable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...he was gaslighting by actual gaslight...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm PigeonsAndRust:

They need to move eunuchs?
Avatar 7:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

UNITS!!! They're all sold out of eunuchs.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:32pm PigeonsAndRust:

Does the playlist community have a preference for Billy Jones over Ernie Hare?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:33pm PigeonsAndRust:

Sorry, Miss Pancake, I need to give me ears a good candling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& the eunuchs are all out of units ...goes without saying...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm ultradamno:

I contest the premise. The vest holding in the gut is no small amount of work
Avatar 7:35pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Alas, RRN63, they have no wonderfully-retained bag of marbles to clutch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...one only hopes no readers are clutching pearls...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:41pm PigeonsAndRust:

It was easy playing poker against Sam. He would always fold.
Avatar 7:42pm Mailman Tom:

Is this off a cylinder?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:42pm G:

@Mailman: It's off a wax-covered toilet roll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...they were very flugel in their spending then...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm G:

120 straight minutes of Codgification.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:46pm PigeonsAndRust:

@Mailman it looks like it was original Victor 2831, a 10" 78, either recorded in 1904 or 1905 adp.library.ucsb.edu...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:46pm G:

From the surface noise, I thought it was Assyrian cuneiform
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm ultradamno:

I believe Morrie's show is all ambient boardwalk foot-traffic sounds
Avatar 7:48pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Nice kitty, Tom!
Avatar 🎸 7:49pm TomTom:

Weird I was just looking at a pic of the old Serval Zippers sign outside Shea when the Old Codger said "Zipper"
Avatar 7:50pm Mailman Tom:

"Betty in Blunderland" was part of my Super 8 major motion picture collection. I screened it many times at kids' birthday parties
  7:51pm Maryel:

Is Betty Boop the new Miley Cyrus?
Avatar 🎸 7:52pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

Suddenly my mind's eye is filled with Groucho Marx playing the guitar whilst Thelma Todd rows the canoe.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:54pm G:

I suspect the visual for the jig was Betty dancing provocatively.
Avatar 🎸 7:54pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

Nothing like a little bit of stage-Irishwoman dancing concluding with arse-bongos….
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:54pm PigeonsAndRust:

If we ever get a few minutes warning of impending nuclear apocalypse, and that's a big If, I'm putting on this soundtrack
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:55pm ultradamno:

I can remember the clamor of public opinion to get Betty under the conservatorship of her father
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

She was just looking for a mushroom to make her head normal-sized.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:56pm G:

Screaming off the rails sounds good sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...sounds fancier than arse-bongos @ any rate...
  🎸 7:58pm Stillwell Coney Islander:

Thank you Courtney!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:00pm G:

His "Nostalgia" is better than his "Neuralgia"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm W Trenton Vinny:

guys and dolls forever!
