Listener comments!

Avatar 9:35am Lolabelle Pancake:

Welcome to another fabulous (but not Fablious!) Thursday. We'll see you right here this evening when the festivities get underway from the poutin' shanty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Lolabelle, it looks like Fablo had to end early today. Did your protestations finally work?
  5:42pm Laura L:

I think Fablio is still sending signals on the radio waves right now--unless the station has been taken over by impudent Martians.
  5:42pm Listener Robert:

Flabbio's lawyer must've advised him not to talk.
  5:44pm Listener Robert:

What's that rabbit in front grabbing the tail of?

Implicit disclaimer in saying, "Keeps PURE milk pure," meaning they're not responsible for milk that started out impure.
  5:47pm Listener Robert:

Rabbit #3 looks like it has but one eye. Flabbio must've gouged the other out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm ultradamno:

Fablio is apparently playing solo underwater tuba music right now.
  5:59pm Listener Robert:

Hah! Flabbio says the Old Codger is blind and no more than a tourist here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

As far as I know, another DJ took over when Fablio had tech problems. But no matter, real music is playing now.
Avatar 6:02pm Mailman Tom:

Now Fablio is trying to steer listeners away from your program by making false announcements!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm G:

Fablio, nemesis of Courtney
Avatar 6:04pm StringOFperils:

Fablio's failures are successive. It's no secret.
Avatar 6:04pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is getting harassing phone calls from Fablio's crooked attorney. He's thinking of changing his phone number from "6." He wonders if "9" is still available.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm spodiodi:

Greetings, Lolabelle Pancake and smart listeners
Avatar 6:05pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Do any of you listeners and Codger fans work for the Bell Telephone Company?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm rrg:

I used to, and unfortunately I'm sure that "9" is taken.
Avatar 6:06pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

My girlfriend works for International Telephone and Telegraph. Would that help?
  6:07pm Listener Robert:

Is your girlfriend Dita Beard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm G:

Go newfangled. I bet 1-800-COURTNEY is available
Avatar 6:08pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

No, I don't know Dita. But I can connect you with Enid Gooch.
Avatar 6:09pm dale:

ha ha!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Ike:

I like the "with recent government deregulation" dig that somebody got past youse guys in this ad.
Avatar 6:11pm dale:

the knife frightens me. i prefer a disston bone saw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm G:

Does Flo carry Rancho Malaria in her carry tray?
Avatar 6:13pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The rotary wimble is fantastic! I've watched Euneeda explain how it works. There was less bloodshed the second time.
Avatar 6:13pm Tarambana:

This Cigarettes, Cigars song is marvelous. Is it from a movie?
Avatar 6:14pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

I admit I've only had occasion to try the lipstick, since I'm not going out much these days, what with the pandemic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm ultradamno:

Sounds like too much monkey business.
Avatar 6:16pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

Of course tools are wonderful, but believe it or not, all of the products have revolutionized my scrapbooking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm dave wuz here:

monkeys- rent, don't buy
  6:17pm Fabios Pennsylvania Lawyer:

Fabio is resting and we wil be in conference very soon about the remedies for the "denial of service" attack that came from, well, how far up do we want to say? The DOJ? Why do they want to prevent Fabio from speaking 2 weeks before an election?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm G:

@Tarambana -- It's a decent bet. Flo D was primarily a film actress, not primarily a singer
Avatar 6:18pm βrian:

Wait, what happened to Fabio?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Courtney is registered as a Bull Moose or a Whig, I wonder?
Avatar 6:18pm dale:

euneeda - that and the scare what with the all the brown shirts lollygagging around at the sinclair station...
  6:19pm Fabios Pennsylvania Lawyer:

I just want to say one thing about the word "Collusion." It begins with C.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm G:

He was a Know Nothing in the 1800s.
Avatar 6:19pm Pierre Delecto:

Not all of Mozart's paintings were masterpieces.
Avatar 6:22pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Six of those Harry Reser platters Courtney offered in the first mic break are now spoken for! Any more takers?
Avatar 6:24pm βrian:

Do those platters have shrimp on them?
Avatar 6:25pm dale:

i prefer my shrimp in those little glasses you can continue to enjoy afterward with cocktail sauce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm mrdonutsu:

Some people in my neighborhood have a retro camping trailer with the name "Rancho Relaxo" written on the sides in a "Lariat" styled typeface.

Bland women are the ones you have to look out for..

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm G:

"Rooney died of natural causes (including complications from diabetes) in Los Angeles on April 6, 2014, at the age of 93."

I think C.E. makes things up for effect. Occasionally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm G:

How exactly do they decommission airline stewardesses?
Avatar 6:30pm Pierre Delecto:

I'm not a tree-hugger. But I will—and often do—make polite conversation with them. There's no reason to be rude to your future furniture.
Avatar 6:30pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

My girlfriend Orla was decommissioned in 1972. It broke her heart.
  6:30pm Listener Robert:

They make them unflyable by removing their heels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm ultradamno:

I believe they take away her scarf i.pinimg.com...
  6:32pm Certain tiny little fishes:

My girlfriend Orca was accused of murder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Blues Mandinga:

Avatar 6:33pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Two more Reser platters snatched up by listener Ike, who plans to re-sell at an enormous profit once Courtney's stock is depleted!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm loveless:

@Martinibomb Excellent artwork!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm G:

Ike. King of Ebay.
  6:36pm Fiddlesticks:

Worst CW fist ever. They’ll never get rescued with that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm G:

Is the Spivey in honor of Fablio?
Avatar 6:38pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney is poker-faced about that, G.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm mrdonutsu:

SCRIVENING MAGNET OF MISSING MAIDS, the papers whooped. PURSUED PASH POET. Bodenheim was a handsome rascal, it was true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm G:

Diplomatic. Rare for CE
Avatar 6:39pm Lolabelle Pancake:

You can read between the lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm ultradamno:

I'm sure Victoria was no dope. Too hard on herself, I think, she sounded perfectly bright.
Avatar 6:44pm Euneeda S. Bodenheim:

My accountant's son has three kidneys. One of them is his mother's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

After how may hip replacements do people start calling one a hippie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm G:

@Ken: That's a multihippy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm G:

Courtney remembers when Double Eagles were legal tender.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ike:

Reser's platter? Is that like a Reese's cup?
  6:50pm Larry O:

Do you beat Danny styles any day!
Avatar 6:51pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney: "Danny who? That pup????"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm G:

Even Stan Shaw was jealous pf Courtney's curation abilities
Avatar 6:54pm Lolabelle Pancake:

One more Reser record going out to Larry O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm spodiodi:
