I came by this evening—a day early—to clean up the shanty because on Thursday morning I have an appointment at the hairdresser. Unfortunately you won't be able to see my new coif because I'll be wearing my Radio Hat during the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm rrg:

Hello, Lolabelle. You should still send us a picture.

We’re all looking forward to tonight’s program. I’ve learned to keep my radio turned off until 6:00pm on account of the agonizing Fablo situation, but I may still check in here sooner than that.
Avatar 1:17pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Reggie. I'm back from the hairdresser. Her name is Edna St. Vincent Bodenheim. I've been going to her for years. However, because of some virus that's been going around (True? I haven't read the papers in a while), she was wearing a mask and I didn't recognize her.
Avatar 1:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

It was a full-facial Bozo mask. I guess that scares away the virus?
Avatar 1:24pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Also — we have received word from our attorney "Buster" Binderfloss that a SWAT team of federal marshals will be surrounding WFMU headquarters at 6pm to apprehend Fablo when he emerges from the building. This is a clandestine operation, so please don't tip him off.
Avatar 1:48pm Gus Bodenheim:

My sister Edna has been wearing that mask privately for ages... this pandemic seems to have emboldened her... encouraged her... her 'tendencies'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm rrg:

Fablo has no idea what's in store. I don't feel sorry for him, in fact I feel pleasure at the prospect of his incarceration. I know that's undignified. I once read that there's some old Chinese or Mexican or Latin word that means "pleasure felt at the misfortune of others", and that must be what I'm feeling now. But one man's (Fablo's) misfortune is being traded for the great fortune so many others will receive. I'm sure there's a word for that too.
Avatar 5:35pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Gus don't get me started on Edna. It's bad enough I get confused for her in the family, let alone that crazy mask. Do you think I like throwing my middle initial all over the place just so folks can tell us apart? Plus which, it sounds too hifalutin if you ask me.
Avatar 5:36pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Reggie, I think the word is "Freudenschade." It is indeed Mexican. They have a rich culture. Here at the Old Codger Hacienda we have great respect for la diversidad!
Avatar 5:37pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Gee you all are so hard on this Fablo fellow. What gives?
Avatar 5:39pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney has an authentic sombrero he bought at Wannamaker's. Strangely it had a tag that said "Made in China." But he compared it to old images of Mexicans wearing hats in Disney cartoons and they look the same!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm rrg:

Euneeda, turn on your radio right now. That'll be Fablo. Then turn it right off again (you'll have to!). Then you will perhaps understand.
Avatar 5:42pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Euneeda. Are you related to Courtney's buddy Gus? We're so honored to be graced with the presence of America's premiere literary family.
Avatar 5:44pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Fablo's show is a criminal enterprise masquerading as entertainment. There are rumors he is running a drug and prostitution ring out of Studio A.
Avatar 5:46pm Lolabelle Pancake:

I'm a big fan of those literary sisters Zora Neale Bodenheim and Elizabeth Barrett Bodenheim.
  5:50pm Laura L:

Lolabelle, I hope the SWAT team will be fully masked--I have heard that some authorities are absent minded about putting on masks when they apprehend people who go around making a big racket like Fablo does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm rrg:

If they wear masks that might tip him off. Better to just surprise him, surely. If several people approached me, all wearing Bozo masks, I would know something's up. Fablo may be a criminal but he's not stupid.
Avatar 5:54pm Lolabelle Pancake:

We're six minutes from show time! Courtney is biting the tip off a Rancho Malario Robusto and teasing his throat with a sip of Sly Weasel.
Avatar 5:57pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Reggie, if that is your name, I'm just not keen on folks badmouthing other folks because sooner or later it will be me. That's what always happens. Now I gotta go check on how my ice is doing. Cooking takes so much time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm rrg:

Euneeda, as long as you don't commit crimes of the magnitude that Fablo has committed, you should be fine for a long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm rrg:

Show time at last.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm G:

This is dirty, as usual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm ultradamno:

The dirty alley, some call it.

Bon soir, mon codgeur!
Avatar 6:05pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney has a hyperactive libido. He has a lamp fashioned in the shape of Sophie Tucker's thigh.
Avatar 6:05pm Mailman Tom:

Do you live on Grumpy Acres, Old Codger?
  6:06pm P-90:

Some might say I’m as “politically correct” as they come. But I loves me some musical Cotton Pickers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm spodiodi:

Lolabelle Pancake: my best to you and Courtney
here to PARTY! B-D

Have you had the pip?

It's Codger!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

78s have superior sonics due to being faster. Also they're quicker so it matters less.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Are we now to kindly get off of his lawn?
Avatar 6:09pm Lolabelle Pancake:

I don't know what Red Butler did to occasion that temperamental outburst by Courtney. It probably had something to do with a borrowed 78 that was returned damaged.
Avatar 6:10pm βrian:

@KenFHP: Not if you're a goat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...starting to think Gittars in general are the sluts among instruments. Bach wrote for Lute. He also had 20 children so we know his Organ had no stops...
  6:12pm P-90:

Ahhh... The Hoagster himself

Hoagy...Bloomington's pride
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm spodiodi:

The Ancient Greeks would've conceived an equally fetching Boogie if they'd only had Banjos.

hoping maybe this show can pick my spirits up a little. feeling really crappy after unfairly being burned for doing nada without explanation .

Do we get to hear the Brox Sisters, too?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm G:

The Boswell Sisters, from uptown New Orleans, where I'm sitting right now...
Avatar 6:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Tom: Courtney has another famous sister act on his stack o' platters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm rrg:

Love those singing sisters.
Avatar 6:34pm Lolabelle Pancake:

kpx: If you want some uplifting counseling from Courtney, call him. He's not just a certified psychologist—he's a certified armchair psychologist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...reminds me of that King Kong picture somehow
...terrifying ! Still a bit shook...
Avatar 6:37pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Fablo is probably being photographed and fingerprinted right now.
Avatar 6:37pm dale:

i'm in search of a phrenoloogist who'll take chickens and tobacco in payment. would courtney be an accredited reader of skull lumps?

At Courtney's age I guess you can't really put off the call of nature.
Avatar 6:42pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is proud of the fact that at his age he still has full bladder control.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

....well he's explicit it's a single digit number...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm spodiodi:

what's Courtney's secret?
Avatar 6:43pm northguineahills:

@dale: my grandfather used to be a physician in WV. He would take payments of chickens, eggs, and even bee hives....
Avatar 6:44pm βrian:

When we hear Courtney play the bagpipes, we'll know if he has bladder control.
  6:44pm Laura L:

Sly Weasel and the Rancho Malario--try them together to satisfy your craving for molten malevolence and malodorousness!
Avatar 6:45pm Lolabelle Pancake:

It's a combo that can't be beat, Laura!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Or if the chicken was poorly - a West Virginian...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm spodiodi:

thanks, Laura
  6:45pm kpx:

lolabelle pancake, I'm not familiar with Courtney. although if I were, my question would be to ask how people of higher echelon that you like can be so cruel.
Avatar 6:46pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is the Old Codger, kpx. You must be a young new listener, probably under 55.
Avatar 6:47pm dale:

well, bee hives are gold!

I've heard of old codger before. I'm just not familiar with his show. and this is my first time on the chat board here.

What is it with the fast rhymes these days? Can't people just sing anymore ??

That satanic music got started earlier than I thought.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In the newsreel this week, they said they discovered where the Druids quarried the rocks for Stonehenge. They could've saved time and effort and just asked the Old Codger.
Avatar 6:57pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is grateful for you all tuning in tonight. He won't say it out loud, but I can sense his grudging appreciation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh this reminds of the Frenchman with two fingers a bit. At least they're playing some chords like Gittars are supposed to. Leave that show off stuff with the notes o the horns I say! Those I can hear loud enuff...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm spodiodi:

Please thank him in whichever way wont trigger him, Lolabelle. Today's was a grand program. Nearly made me forget all that Fabio noise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm rrg:

We've all had a fine time, Lolabelle. Pass that on to Courtney.

Hopefully they won't release Fablo on bail and we'll be rid of him for a long time!
