Avatar 3:10pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Codger fans. Tonight's show will be starting on time (6pm Eastern) and attendance will be taken. I am Lolabelle, Courtney's agent and playlist supervisor. I will be moderating during the show. Please behave, especially you hot patooties and Good-Time Charleys.

Courtney wants me to warn you all that there is a crime syndicate (MoLevy Ent.) selling FAKE Vocalion 78s. These are counterfeit and you should not buy them. If you see labels that list any of these artists, put them down and walk away from the seller:

Dolly Duke and Her Menstrual Minstrels
Lucy the Warbling Landlady
Blind Clarence Muckton
The Unhappiness Boys
Tyrone ("Third Leg") Pines
Cornelius "Daffy" Duckford
Avatar 5:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Also we are so sorry again about the horrid program that precedes the Codger. We have informed management that we are not happy with the unspeakably rude sounds featured by Fablo and that a different host with tastes more in line with Courtney's would make a better lead-in to what is surely WFMU's flagship program.

Hi Lullabelle. I was wondering what sort of exercise regiment Courtney adheres to in the day and age, at his age?
Avatar 6:05pm Lolabelle Pancake:

My name is Lolabelle. I cannot answer questions for any listener unless my name is spelled correctly. Courtney told me that's the way to command respect.

Lolabelle, can Courtney's tummy still handle dairy consumption?

@Carmichael: Ain't it the truth! Except there are many bad Levys. Rye bread notwithstanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Folsom:

20 MPG seems pretty good for 1950, maybe I'm wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Carmichael:

@Wendy, Eugene is OK. Been binge watching Schitt's Creek lately.

Too bad Fats had a short life. His songs are wonderful!

Quick jump in... Carmichael binge watched it too. Great funny show.

Courtney keep playing hits, you wouldn't like this show, it's new, created within the last 70 years.

@Carmichael: He's awesome! I haven't seen Schitt's Creek. I take it it's worth it? You and Otis recommend it, so I ask, what do y'all like about it?
Avatar 6:20pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney's Philco is on the phritz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Carmichael:

@Otis, I'm a big SCTV fan, and the style is roughly the same to me. I saw a scene last night lifted part and parcel from Dr. Tongue's 3D House of Stewardesses.
Avatar 6:21pm Otis Fodder:

@Wendy - Eugene Levy + his kids + Catherine O'Hara. Oh yesss.
Avatar 6:22pm Otis Fodder:

I love SCTV as well and those who went into film/tv from the cast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Okay, then I shall check out Schitt's Creek. I think it's on the flix of net, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm G:

I am the 6pm DJ, on W O L D,

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Carmichael:

@Wendy, the premise is Levy and Catherine O'Hara buy a motel in the woods as an investment, and everything immediately falls apart. A lot like Green Acres, rich city folk coming to a quirky small town. Over the top acting. Think Bobby Bittman and Lola Heatherton.
Avatar 6:24pm Otis Fodder:

Lolabelle, what does Courtney think of that new show Candid Camera. I hear it's quite a new experience in voyeuristic viewing!
  6:24pm Syd B.:

Haven’t heard this program before. Sounds a bit old...
Avatar 6:25pm dale:

syd - you're listening to deep purple. DEEP PURPLE!
  6:25pm Guod ni CD:

what year? is this the earliest Sun Ra ever?
Avatar 6:26pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Guod: Courtney says this acetate was given to him by Herman Sonny Blount in 1948.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm G:

@Syd B.: Too much acid, maybe?
  6:27pm JtotheK:

Sonny Blount == Sun Ra on that Deep Purple?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Robot? What sort of new fangled contraption might that be?

Robot reminds me of Raymond Scott!

Lolabelle, thx. He was always inspired.

The Old Codger seemed to refer to "The Great Emperor Nero" from personal experience. That would make 2 WFMU DJs with personal experience with emperors of Rome, Hearty White with Emperor Hadrian.

Dick van Dyke gave out that phone number for temporary use when visiting a very small town on his show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm G:

@Hopey: He stopped paying his monthly bill in 1958, and that number doesn't work now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Dash it all! My pencil broke before I was able to finish writing down the number. I'll have to get some better pencils in hopes of recording the complete number next time.
