Listener comments!

Avatar 11/17 11:05pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The Dead Sea Scrolls contained some of Courtney's earliest playlists. Of course most of the music he featured back then was on cylinders.
Avatar 11/18 3:50pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That reminds me of something Victoria Spivey once said to Courtney: "Is that an Amberol cylinder in your pocket or are you just feeling frisky?"
Avatar 8:33pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Special feature: Courtney promises that this week's show will be COMMERCIAL-FREE!
Avatar 11:15am Pierre Delecto:

I found a typos on the internet. Is anyone listen?
  2:22pm Listener Robert:

I thought I was uncomfortable from sitting on piles. Then I realized they were files.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm rrg:

Commercial-free? Like all the lesser programs on this radio station?
Avatar 5:41pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Rrrreggie. Courtney will explain the ramifications of today's commercial-free installment of the Philco Cheap Cigar Boudoir. It has had an impact on his support staff.

Time to pull the plug on Fablio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm G:

  6:00pm Laura L:

Pull the plug, Lolabelle!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm ultradamno:

Fablio had the nerve to play a song called 'until now we suffer', indeed we did.
Avatar 6:01pm Lolabelle Pancake:

At least this week Fablio didn't say "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD Codger."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm rrg:

No Fablio next week, at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm G:

@rrg: ThanksNotGetting?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm rrg:

A great opener! Tell him, Lolabelle. (He's sitting right there, isn't he?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm spodiodi:

greetings, Lolabelle and Courtney
hi all
Avatar 6:03pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney always gets off to a stylish start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm G:

@Lolabelle: Playing actual human music???

that gentleman looks like paul whiteman only less rotund.

Howdy Folks
Avatar 6:05pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney will definitely be here next week hosting his program. Thanksgiving in the poutin' shanty! "Pash the massed potaters!"
Avatar 6:09pm Lolabelle Pancake:

There's still some leftover goat and we'll be making fritters!
Avatar 6:10pm dale:

hope you milked the goat first for ice cream.

Avatar 6:11pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Did I do that right?
  6:15pm Listener Robert:

Dale, he didn't take too well to being milked for sperm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm steveo:

Wow who new ancient records are so good?! Thanks Courtney and Lolabelle
Avatar 6:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Steveo. Are you new to the program? Are you one of those young WFMU listeners, aged 45 or 50?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm G:

Cole tune for the hep cats.
Avatar 6:25pm Lolabelle Pancake:

  6:26pm The Butterman:

Does Gus Bodenheim know Rex Raddamaker? I wonder?
Avatar 6:27pm dale:

lolabelle lives in the longacre house and is waiting for a chance to play kitty in 'charley's aunt.'
  6:30pm Old Dave:

So, Lolabelle, can I post a link to my late father's online Americana folk art auction sale for a fee?
It's kinda commercial...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm steveo:

Not completely new but sometimes completely silent, Lolabelle. I am somewhat embarrassed that you have guessed my age, however. I'm trying to come accross as 12.
Avatar 6:32pm Floradix Hundwasser:

Oh my! I hear a cartoon cat was harmed in the making of this film.
  6:34pm Old Dave:

Avatar 6:34pm Floradix Hundwasser:

This is song filth!
Avatar 6:34pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hartman's Heartbreakers were requested last week. Courtney is duty-bound to deliver!
Avatar 6:34pm Floradix Hundwasser:

I mean, this song is fifth!
Avatar 6:35pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney thinks the lyrics are "discreet."
Avatar 6:35pm Floradix Hundwasser:

I mean, oh mevernind.
Avatar 6:36pm dale:

saw ethel waters in an episode of route 66 today. any tv after 1962 is a waste.
  6:37pm Elvis Causticfellow:

That "grrr" in Betty Lou's throat is filthier than any lyric.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Gaylord Fields:

Hi-ho, Lolabelle. A guy I know has a cousin who is married to the great-niece of Abe "Hit Sign Win Suit" Stark. Using his connections, he's rented out the side of one of the buildings in the Ebbets Fields Houses in Flatbush and would like to erect a similar sign — but with a modern twist. As such, the Old Codger's show would be perfect for this potentially mutually lucrative opportunity. Should I have him give you a call?
Avatar 6:38pm dale:

what does he smell like? cigars and failure?
Avatar 6:40pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Gaylord. You've been on WFMU a long time. Do you know Irwin? He used to do a show on WFMU back in the 1990s. People sometimes ask about him.
Avatar 6:40pm dale:

gaylord - clay played a p.j.proby song this morning and i thought of 'don't forget about me' and i thought of dust covers and i thought of you. still one of my BEST premiums....
Avatar 6:41pm Lolabelle Pancake:

As for the offer to advertise on the Ebbets Fields Houses, Courtney is most interested. Please have Mr. Stark get in touch with me thru my management agency, the International House of Pancake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Gaylord Fields:

Lolabelle, Irwin and I get our finery from the same haberdashery — Lallo's House of Charles in Hoboken. I'll remind him of his former radio days the next time we tussle over the last apricot pocket square in the shop.
Avatar 6:46pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney bought a pair of spats at Lallo's House of Charles in 1946. How is Lallo doing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Gaylord Fields:

Lolabelle, as for the ad, I'll have one of the Stark family representatives "get in touch with" you, if you'll excuse my use of corporate jargon.
  6:48pm Otis Criblecoblis:

I find that such unsophisticated sonorous strains have an equally proportionate relation to the amount of alcohol I quaff. Keep spinning. As will I.
Avatar 6:49pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Hello, Otis. Sounds like someone is already plushed to the scuppers!
Avatar 6:49pm dale:

like yodeling needs stereotyping to make it better...
Avatar 6:50pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Gaylord Fields:

Here's the good news on Lallo: His poor eyesight, combined with the fact that the notice banning Courtney from the shop has faded considerably in the 70 years it's been taped behind the counter, means Courtney may be welcome back. There's a pair of spats with Courtney's name on it that's been in the stockroom all these years. (That name embossed on the side of each of the spats has also faded.)

Am I doing these emojis correctly? I only recently learned about them.
  6:53pm Larry O:

There are thousands of fans of the late Danny styles who really should know about you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm spodiodi:

Avatar 6:54pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Gaylord, so Lallo told you about Courtney's "extended credit plan"?
Avatar 6:54pm dale:

i only know the poo emoji - which means 'where's yer outhouse?'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm G:

I think the kids use things like: 🤩🍆💦
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Gaylord Fields:

Lolabelle, so much so that if they weren't both men, I'd think that Lallo was kinda sweet on Courtney.
Avatar 6:57pm Lolabelle Pancake:

You know who else was sweet on Courtney? J. Edgar Hoover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm G:

Cary Grant: "I've gone GAY!" (leaps in the air)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Gaylord Fields:

Julian Eltinge never wore a dress before he met Courtney, or so I read in the tell-all book "Vitaphone Babylon"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm ultradamno:

Emerging emojis 🍸
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm spodiodi:

thanks, lolabelle and Courtney
Avatar 7:01pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Thanks to all for listening. We hope you weren't disappointed that there weren't any new commercials in this program. We promise to bring you TWO commercials next show.
