Lolabelle, are you there yet, prepping the ether for Courtney? If you are, please do something about this awful music that's playing now. Who is this Fablo anyway?
Avatar 5:46pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello to all the Codger fans. I'm Lolabelle. I am Courtney's Official Playlist Administrator. I can answer questions about Courtney, about his musical choices, and offer apologies for his insensitive on-air comments. Please be patient with him. He's the spokesman for his generation because he's the only one left.
Avatar 5:47pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello "rrg." How is that pronounced?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm rrg:

Like "arrrgggghhh".
Avatar 5:48pm Lolabelle Pancake:

We have filed a complaint with the Federal Bureau of Broadcast Standards about the so-called "music" played by Fablo. So far, they have not responded. We will be tenacious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm rrg:

If you need a signature for a petition you can use mine as many times as you need.
Avatar 5:57pm Lolabelle Pancake:

I just checked with the WFMU chief engineer to ask if this is Fablo's music or if the station is experiencing technical difficulties.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Lolabelle, thank you for helping. My best to Courtney
Avatar 6:04pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Sorry about your dad, Dale. By Courtney's measure, your pop was a mere zygote.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm ultradamno:

I smoked Camel straights most of the time that I smoked. Smooooth, smooooth flavor sensation.

Hello Mr. Codger, someone warned me to not believe anything you say

(before anyone jumps on me I quit about 20 years ago)
  6:05pm wfmu listener phillip:

my father smoked pall mall red unfiltered now there's a manly cigerette
  6:05pm Andal:

I always think every dope instrumental jazz song from the 30s is Fats Waller, but this one actually was. Glad you're back, Mr. Codger.

Ruth made several musical shorts during the early sound era. She was the bee's knees.
  6:07pm wfmu listener phillip:

my father smoked since he was was 12 back in 1938. the cigs didnt kill him kidney failure did
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm rrg:

All requests have to go through Lolabelle. But Courtney will ignore them all anyway.
Avatar 6:07pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney wants me to remind those of the tender persuasion in the audience that he has lowered the threshold for jailbait from 40 to 35.
  6:07pm yippie:

aww i always light 1 up when your show starts
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm spodiodi:

Kent was the first cigarette i ever smoked, at 8. delicious
Avatar 6:07pm Floradix Hundwasser:

Yoo hoo, Codger! I say, I'm willing to misbehave. Just say the word. And don't get that Lolabelle involved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm ultradamno:

I admit I do sometimes miss that rich ungulate flavor
  6:07pm Miss G:

@chresti did your mother send you to the corner for smokes with a note pinned to your shirt? That's how we did. . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm spodiodi:

a note? i was given 4 quarters and a pointed finger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm spodiodi:

Camels and Clorox is the ultimate cleanse.

  6:10pm Miss G:

@spodiodi my mother was a blue collar turned ivory tower intellectual. . ."stacker of wheat"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm ultradamno:

So no risk of binary coded secret messages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm chresti:

I smoked for about 12 years. Miss G, no, but she made me smoke Kents because she couldn't stand the smell of Marlboros.
  6:11pm Miss G:

@chresti, aww, Marlboros was what we smoked back in the day! East Village.
  6:11pm ledzeppelinsucks:

codger should interview Keith Morris
  6:11pm Andal:

@spodiodi: Like listening to old Sean Connery
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm ultradamno:

I think Kent is one I never tried, I did dance with Marlboros, Lucky Strikes, Chesterfields and Magna (which they practically gave away back in the day) on occasion though
Avatar 6:13pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Floradix: Courtney has you in his "queue" right after Blossom Moskowitz next Saturday afternoon.

It doesn't matter how low he drops his standards. Don't let me catch any gal under 50 in that queue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Salem's took my dad's life. When they said I was on my way to see him, they said he opened his eyes momentarily. It gives me comfort to think I was the last person in his mind as he slipped into the final unconsciousness.
Avatar 6:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Blossom is old enough to be your Tantie Esther.

...tain't the Jazzes JellyRoll don't say so...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Dropping his criteria to 35 is disappointing. I was hoping he would raise it to 50+. Ah, well.
Avatar 6:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Is Otis Fonder in the audience today? Courtney asked.

Andal, indeed :)S

Is Stompy Van Ronk related to Dave?

Stompy is Dave's great-grandad.

Stompy reminds me of a certain Elephant

  6:26pm Laura L:

Rancho Malaria is an excellent repellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm G:

Rotary hone? Is that what they're calling the iPhone 12?
Avatar 6:28pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Laura. It's "Malario." Rancho Malarias are a cheap knockoff. Courtney always sticks premium in his craw.
  6:28pm middlebun:

Are you in the bunker?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Maybe there's something wrong with my speakers, but the surface noise on that Wallace & Stompy song sounded a little -- how do you say? -- suspicious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thank you, Lolabelle. You're an excellent playlist curator.
Avatar 6:29pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Wendy: Courtney tried cleaning that disc with his strongest solvent, but it was fairly worn. Whoever owned it previously must've played it a LOT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Robyn Hitchcock did a fine improv monolog about iPhone 3000s arguing w/ each other about if a thigh fossil was from those ancient Humans or not...ya had be there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Lolabelle: You can clean records with bathtub gin? Duly noted! Many thanks.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Ain't no lie. I was at that Robyn Hitchcock show. I used my iPhone 3000 to get him to record a show promo for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm ultradamno:

You know when Segway scooters (it doesn't matter if they don't like the word now) were announced they said that cities would have to be replanned to accommodate them. Now they're officially done and we listen to victrolas over the radio, take that technology!

Flip the Frog makes me so happy

nice one ultra!
Avatar 6:34pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Sadly, Flip died penniless at the Van Halen Nursing Home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dishsoap also preferred solvent for removing ancient human cells from human heart structures so they can put your own cloned heart cells on them...a segue from nothing @ all...

:~( poor froggy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Me too, spodiodi! I hope there is a weekly edition of Flip on this fine radio program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm spodiodi:

still, I don't know if i'd mind the same fate
  6:35pm ledzeppelinsucks:

Dixie Chicks are now The Chicks. Great move! I am buying all of their old records from when they were racist.
Avatar 6:35pm Floradix Hundwasser:

@ RR that's why she says "I can see myself!" in the commercial
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm spodiodi:

same here, Hopey Sockmonkey! it's lookin good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I would also love to hear Flip the Frog every week. Dunno if Lolabelle is keeping tallies or anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm ultradamno:

@led I was wondering if Lowell George got canceled when I saw that earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Chicks' is both sexist & speciesist...

Jack Dorsey was the Zeppo of the Big Band era. And no, I don't mean that new guy on the internets!

When I was a kid toilet bowls always reminded me of Flip the Frog. Why was that, Dr. Freud?

Speaking of potential cancellation, Flip The Frog in...um...Spooks www.youtube.com...

Floradix: There were 12 Dorsey Brothers. They were originally called The Apostles of Swing. But eventually 10 went into other lines of work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

They could've re-branded themselves as Chix, or possible the edgy-looking name Chykz.

Courtney: "When Sophie Tucker performed in New York, she didn't need a cabaret license. She needed a building permit."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Paul McCartney declared Sophie their favorite American Band before the Queen Mother when I was less than 24 hours old. Facts are facts.
  6:47pm G:

Courtney is historically trans -- he's re-identified from 2020 to 1920. His preferred pronoun now is "then."
