  1:26pm Listener Robert:

Looks like we won't have Flabbio to kick around...today.
  1:28pm Listener Robert:

May your Christmas be merry, your New Year be happy, and your Tucker be Sophie.
Avatar 5:19pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That was Sophie Tucker's card to Courtney in 1963. There's a message inside, but it's too salacious to reveal it here. We try to keep the poutin' shanty safe for the whole family. And by "family-safe," we don't mean the Bodenheims.

He better not open that can of night crawlers in the studio!

It's a Fablio-Free Thursday at WFMU!

Any lawsuits cooking against this new Clay person Fablio brought in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm loveless:

Hummmmmm, this sounds like Hearty.
  6:03pm Miss G:

Y'all crack me up. . .have to quit to serve up burnt biscuits due to Clay. Thank you! coal for everyone!
  6:03pm P-90:

Well, that was somewhat epic...
Avatar 6:05pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The role of Hearty White was played by Ray Milland.
  6:06pm P-90:

See? And I was sure the role of Ray Milland was played by Hearty White.
  6:07pm Miss G:

Missssss Pancake, if only, it had been James Mason (must GO!)
Avatar 6:07pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The epic poem, "The Night Before Codger's Christmas," was written by Edna St. Vincent Bodenheim.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm loveless:

He didn't have those Milland dulcet tones . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm loveless:

Welp, no offense, Hearty. Love your voice also!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm ultradamno:

Matt Fiveash played a clip of Charles Laughton speaking the other day that I couldn't help but notice sounded much like Gus Bodenheim, has anyone seen them in the same place at the same time?
  6:11pm Floradix Hundwasser:

I can verify the provenance of the patina on the walls of the shanty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm HyperDose:

With a tip of his cap and wave of his cane, our dear Hearty White can teleport anywhere!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm loveless:

What happens in the shanty, stays in the shanty.
  6:12pm ?:

Any chance the Codge has a rare 78 of Leslie West doing "Mississippi Queen"!
  6:13pm P-90:

“I am NOT a contrarian!” I respectfully beg to differ.
  6:14pm Miss G:

Oh Bodenheim Triplets, I can't quit you!
  6:14pm ?:

charles has taken leave for several decades now.
Avatar 6:16pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Leslie West's recording of "Mississippi Queen" was a cover of a Rudy Vallee song from 1937.
  6:17pm Booger T & Nash Rambler:

I wish I had 28 ears so I could listen to all of WFMU. Alas, I couldn't afford the q-tips.
  6:18pm ?:

perfect, that would explain most things...thanks!
Avatar 6:18pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney knew a man with four brains!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm ultradamno:

In jars?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm HyperDose:

If the Old Codger grew his own cannabis strain, what would he call it?
  6:21pm Booger T & Nash Rambler:

But did he have four skins?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm ultradamno:

Avatar 6:21pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Tell us, HyperD!
Avatar 6:22pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Courtney uses his brain for Codger-tation.
  6:22pm ?:

CAN'T WAIT Til the Calendar kicks in!
  6:29pm Booger T & Nash Rambler:

Maybe Codger's weed could be named, Hey! get off my grass!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm dale:

evening. god bless us everyone. except the goat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm ultradamno:

Most times, when people have the option of doing things, they probably shouldn't. So good for Gus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm HyperDose:

Well...Curmudgeon Kush is his sweet citrus-y smelling hybrid. Great for mornings on the balcony yelling at children on their way to school. Now if you fancy something a wink more potent, he really recommends Gaffer Glue. This indica strain is the Codger's signature special. The musk-forward notes prepare you for a wave of euphoria that takes you by the hand, and leads you to the most pleasant slumber. Members Only!!!

Kids today and their Sonja Henie fantasies.

Ohmy (frantically fanning face with free hand) this song is racy!

If I had pearls I'd clutch 'em. Ms. Bailey won't you please come home for Xmas...
Avatar 6:40pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The role of Betty Lou was NOT played by Margaret Dumont.
Avatar 6:40pm Lolabelle Pancake:

She turned down the role.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm dale:

she was too busy bouncing around between chico and harpo.
Avatar 6:42pm Lolabelle Pancake:

"Chico, do you love your brother Harpo?"
"No, but I'm used to him."
Avatar 6:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ah - sweet rendezvous... now I can barely have a randy Zoom...

Irving fits any surname
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm coelacanth:

were you friends with him through all this?
(assuming you didn't yet know he was russian)
Avatar 6:48pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Sounds like the Irving Berlin story affirmed Godwin's Law.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm ultradamno:

Any relation to Randy California or Gary Indiana?
Avatar 6:52pm Lolabelle Pancake:

The role of Grampy was played by Chester Conklin.
  6:52pm Listener Robert:

Is anyone's code here good enough to even tell if Grampy's hat was spelling anything?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm McGroovey:

Does Irving fit with O'Shaughnessey?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Is there a telemavision in the poutin' shanty? You can turn it to one of those channels displaying a burning yule log.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm HyperDose:

Almost time to wrap up this shindig already? Aw come on miss Lolabelle, just a few more spins around the phonograph?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Secret Santa:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Do you think Reddy Kilowatt and Mr. Zip from the post office are related; cousins or something?
