You are the best, Old Codger! We need you every week - neigh, every day! When cds have been beaten into coasters you will still be swirling these frantic platters! Spin on!

I am disgusted by some of the lyrics of these songs. What is Hydrant Love? I can enjoy a Bongo Bop will the best of them but a Midnight Creep is too far for me. Some self-censorship is in order, Mr Codger.

C. T. Edison --- The Legend Lives On (despite numerous roach traps and cans of Raid sprayed his way). Yes, Virginia, there is a codger.
(The man has hemorrhoids older than me!)

Sean A. Garrison:
His phone number is "6".

Victor O. K. Brunswick:
Regarding the songs cited in the request for self-censorship, be aware that the recording of "Hydrant Love" was made in 1925. California Playboys performed "Midnight Creep" in 1949, although Bell-Lyttelton probably did this one in the '50's.
Censoring the archives of musical history would be as repulsive as circumcizing the Codger.
