Oh stop it, you baboon!

I've decided to come out of the closet. It's dark in there and it smells like camphor.
Avatar 12:34pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Welcome early birds! And early primates.
Avatar 1:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Don't miss the EXPLOSIVE revelations about WFMU's nefarious undertakings on tonight's program. There will be a SPECIAL REPORT from the Old Codger's team of undercover investigative journalists! And commercials.
Avatar 2:37pm HyperDose:

Truth, intrigue, and shenanigans! Will there be a secret handshake as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm zopa:

Under the covers with Fablio? I hope these intrepid investigators have been thoroughly sanitized!
Avatar 5:12pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Only the best investigators were on the case. All are graduates of the Delbarton School of Journalistic Snoopery. They have compiled a thick dossier of potential allegations, suspicious possibilities, perplexing coincidences, and rumored wrongdoing.
Avatar 5:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Nothing is done halfway. They don't leave some things to chance—it's all solid, conclusive conjecture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm zopa:

Unexpurgated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm ultradamno:

Someone is abusing a microphone on Fablio's show right now in ways that defy the Geneva Convention
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm ultradamno:

...err harmonica, I meant to say, but microphones too, I'm sure.
Avatar 5:57pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The motto of Fablio's show is, "Why struggle alone when we can fail together?"
Avatar 5:59pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Will Fablio refer to Courtney as the "Ooooooooooold Codger" tonight? That makes Courtney cringe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm ultradamno:

He did not, restraining order?

Spoke too soon, he sneaked in a little mustard the second time
Avatar 6:01pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney never refers to his program successor as "Hearty Whiiiiiiiiiiiiite."
Avatar 6:02pm Listening Out There:

I'm a monkey...man...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hey Codgers - talk a walk on the wild stride...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm dave wuz here:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm dale:

is that a sears prebuilt monkey? true story - their toughskins line of togs was made from monkey hides dyed blue. they NEVER wore out!
  6:05pm anders:

as much as I loathe you, old codger, it is lovely to come down from an acid trip and listen to your radio programme
Avatar 6:06pm Lolabelle Pancake:

"Fatha" gets quotes. Fats doesn't.
Avatar 6:07pm Jennica:

I'm so sorry I'm late. My last work meeting just wrapped up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Spinning Giant:

dave - which one would that be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Spinning Giant:

i see one that looks real grumpy and the other one just looks defeated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Spinning Giant:

your classic pre-divorce portrait
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm spodiodi:

hello, Codger, Lolabelle, all
Avatar 6:08pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That's MEEEEEE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Spinning Giant:

cyber-blindness - how do i get me some o that ???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Baboons! Don't mess. They got red butts for a reason...
Avatar 6:09pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Lolabelle Pancake, Playlist Facilitator!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm dale:

did abraham mills reveal that the first baseballs were cowdung wrapped in tobacco tied with butchers twine?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Spinning Giant:

hey dale! what were the bats made of...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm dale:

mainly lard and wood flour.
Avatar 6:12pm Listening Out There:

Eugenics? Wasn't that the band with Annie Lennox?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Spinning Giant:

ahh of course
Avatar 6:12pm Jennica:

What a riot.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm ultradamno:

I've been to the mall of america. It's large.
Avatar 6:13pm Lolabelle Pancake:

We will hear from Gus again in the third program segment.
  6:14pm Laura L:

I can't wait to hear what happens next with those Bodenheims!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm ultradamno:

I do appreciate him going against his genetic disposition and not provoking the coffee fascists
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Spinning Giant:

is pickin' the cabbage a euphemism for something...? do i want to know...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& the Crapitalist bean counters...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm dale:

giant - they also used the hickory crutches of dead soldiers from the civil war. no point wasting good hard wood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Probly means taking long green off the rubes to pay for his Jazz cigarette habit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Spinning Giant:

dale - damn straight - now yer startin to talk some sense!
Avatar 6:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

How's my facilitating so far?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Spinning Giant:

felicitations on your facilitations Lola ma belle!
Avatar 6:20pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

Language note: as of the recording of "It's Murder", 'when he makes love to me' _could_ refer to sex, but it was still more likely to mean, as it had for about thirty years, more like chatting-up and wooing and hugging…and light petting at most.

Back then one could say 'Romeo in the garden made love to Juliet in the balcony' without implying an extreme anatomical anomaly on Romeo's behalf.
Avatar 6:20pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Thank you, Mr. Giant. Is your name descriptive or ironic?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm dale:

lolabelle - did uncle josh ever scat? that would be entertainment for certain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Spinning Giant:

Murakami - thanks for the edgeication xxx
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Why ain't Swing good enuff for 'em ?!? Do we really need this willfully farout Bop hate musics ?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm ultradamno:

How did Gus Bodenheim not make the final four for Time Magazine person of the year with this N.E.B.U.C.H.A.D.N.E.Z.Z.A.R. initiative?
Avatar 6:22pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

I had heard, Lolabelle, of your felicitatious facilitio, and they were _not_ exaggerations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Spinning Giant:

Ni un ni l'autre (that's the fancy frenchophile way of saying neither, donchaknow), la belle...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm ultradamno:

With Fablio sending his chemically polluted hippies here, concessions must be made for the sake of order.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Hey, now! This is swinging alrighty!
Avatar 6:26pm Jennica:

LOL
Avatar 6:26pm (Murakami Whywolf))):

Spinning Giant:
You're welcome; learning this made some lines in a Marx Brothers' movie more understandable, as well helping me understand why the Hays Office allowed the film title "Let's Make Love".

Next: 'The Gay Divorcée: should I, a male, bother making love to her over supper?'
Avatar 6:26pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney's recollections might be inaccurate, but he can't guarantee that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm ultradamno:

Humdinger status is what I look for in a wellness facility
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm dale:

i like a little shock treatment on occasion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm G:

Oh, man. Long day, busy time of year for me. Forgot about FMU/ET being an hour ahead pf CT here in New Orkeans. Have to play the audio quietly because the Signif Other on the adjoining couch has been on a Zoom settlement conference since 2pm. Someone just said "amortizing." Don't explain to Courtney about Zoom. Just tell him it's people dickering about money -- same as it ever was.
Avatar 6:29pm Jennica:

Excellent, Gus. Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I've tossed a little oxy now & then to be brutally frank...
Avatar 6:30pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Gus is finished for this program. He's off to get pl*shed to the sc*ppers.
Avatar 6:31pm (((Murakami Whywolf):

The commercials interrupting this programme are extremely reminiscent of those doing so to the "Young Marquis and Stanley Show" that played on Pasadena's KROQ (the original station so-named) regularly in around 1981-1985 or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That confounding two-fingered Frenchman again...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Spinning Giant:

hmm..."Dick(e)ring"...

That sounds suspish like another one of those old-fash euphemisms from one of your talkies, Murakami :D
Avatar 6:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Django only had nine fingers, three on each hand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Bring it on home!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm dave wuz here:

macon ed? he owes me money that sonofabitch
Avatar 6:40pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney's still waiting for Macon Ed to return that bar of soap he loaned him.
  6:41pm Laura L:

Has Courtney ever done the two-step to this Stomp?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm spodiodi:

get it, Flip!!!
Avatar 6:43pm Jennica:

Did that one go through the two-step verification, LL?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm dale:

surprisingly flip the bird never flew even though it was pre-code.
Avatar 6:44pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney was notorious for his unverified dance moves.
Avatar 6:45pm Lolabelle Pancake:

"Ah, nuts! Mind yer milkin!" That was a famous phrase in the early '30s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Not even sure what year this is but I say if the economy gets any worse we should all dress like animals & do slapstick...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Spinning Giant:

i think they recycled this soundtrack for an early Wiltie Dipsey animation known as Donald Dick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Spinning Giant:

Rabbit, I'll third that motion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm G:

Flip the Frog or Joe Frank? Radio segment battle to the death.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm dale:

ub iwerks looks just like george orwell. coincidence?
  6:48pm Lisa:

They were both prophets
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Flip the Frog Extras - Joe Frank Commentary...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm G:

Ub Iwerks never made a cartoon titled "Keep the Aspidistra Flying"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Spinning Giant:

What the hell do we care?!! guffaw
  6:53pm The Butterman:

That jerk-face Irwin used to play lots of Calypso music in his Murial’s Treasure segment. That was awesome.
Avatar 6:54pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney remembers him. Irwin did a show on WFMU during the 1990s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm zopa:

Thank you Ms. Pancake, Codger, assorted Bodenheims. Enjoyed every second of it.
