Avatar 1/5 3:29pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Oh, good, nobody here yet. (It's Tuesday.) The poutin' shanty is still a disaster after last week's New Year's eve bash. I've never seen so many empty bottles of Sly Weasel and Beyond Water. Also looks like someone was passing around a syphon of Radium Vitalizer. That stuff is above my intoxication grade.
Avatar 2:36pm Lolabelle Pancake:

OK, the place is now spic'n'span CLEAN! Welcome all to the shanty (attending thru the radio, of course). The liquor cabinet is a bit understocked after the NYE revelry, so please BYO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm zopa:

Six percent is a margin of error with which I can work. Happy belated New Year Ms. Pancake.

Edison/Fabio 2024. A "new" New Beginning.
Avatar 3:42pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This past week the DJ Formerly Known as Fablio, a.k.a. Fablo, sent a letter to the WFMU staff and signed it "Fabnio." Courtney became convinced that his nemesis changed his name to deflect attention from the ongoing radio malpractice suit filed against him by Courtney. The Codger defiantly asserted that litigation will proceed with Fabnio's new d/b/a, according to an announcement carried on the DuMont TV Network.

Hi, Rreggie — There will be Pennerian duck references during tonight's Philco Cheap Cigar Boudoir. Be sure to drink your Cocomalt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm PigeonsAndRust:

Would it be safe to say that Mr. Penner was one of our nation's most notorious quack dealers?
Avatar 5:55pm HyperDose:

What is beyond water, Lolabelle? Is there a 7th state of matter? What comes next?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm ultradamno:

Fablio wants everyone to leave the capital, at least here Courtney is smart enough to take the capital from Sly Weasel
  6:00pm Listener Robert:

I never knew Blackie was one of the 7 Dwarfs. Although there is this Warner Bros. cartoon you won't see on TV...
Avatar 6:01pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Beyond Water™ is a refreshing beverage, something to imbibe when you find water boring. Beyond water has a rich amber color, and goes down with a refreshing, astringent, cleansing bite. It's made from iron-free dihydrogen oxide filtered through high concentrations of limestone. Aged in charred oak casks, triple-distilled, and bottled in small batches. Beyond Water™ is a proud sponsor of the Old Codger Radio Hour.
  6:01pm Listener Robert:

If it's a "food drink", that probably means it doesn't have to qualify as food or drink.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm G:

Fabio says we have to help the OC along, he's having a rough time. I smell defamation suit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm rrg:

You can't see ANY cartoons on TV anymore.
Avatar 6:03pm Lolabelle Pancake:

When it comes to TV, Courtney is a black & white supremacist.
Avatar 6:07pm HyperDose:

Thank you kindly Lolabelle. I can always count on your crackpot sleuthing skills!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm G:

I'd prefer if it was the boring 20s, given everything so far.
Avatar 6:07pm Jennica:

Hi Courtney, Lolabelle, fellow listeners...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm G:

Will the incoming administration break up that leviathan Delbarton conglomerate?
  6:12pm Listener Robert:

Was Gus Bodenheim part of Firesign? After that ad, I wonder.
Avatar 6:13pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Delbarton Solutions™ — another once-proud sponsor of the Old Codger Radio Hour.
Avatar 6:14pm Jennica:

Gus is a riot.
Avatar 6:14pm Lolabelle Pancake:

This Desi Arnaz tune is in Spanish. I hope you listeners can understand it.

The Old Codger sold out! Come on gang, lets go find a new shanty to have shenanigans in!

I love all these singing sisters.

Helen Kane was a formidable citizen.
Avatar 6:19pm Mailman Tom:

She had a face to match her voice

No! My radio has stopped.

@rrg: Phyllis McGuire, last survivor of McGuire Sisters singing act, died at 89 a few days back...
Avatar 6:19pm HyperDose:

Meek and mild was the way she carried herself. A sweet gal, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm ultradamno:

So it's not just me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm ultradamno:

Back now. I assume it cut away for the love making.
Avatar 6:20pm Lolabelle Pancake:

That was the part of the song where they "did something."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm rrg:

I missed almost all of Helen.
Avatar 6:22pm Lolabelle Pancake:

You could have used that free time to prepare yourself a delicious, refreshing glass of Cocomalt!

Delbarton Sunshine Salve, that is.
Avatar 6:29pm HyperDose:

I would say lets play a round of "Guess The Codger's Ailment", but the telegram privacy bill hasn't gone into effect yet. I fear his (surely embarrassing) personal information may be seen by mischievous eyes!
Avatar 6:30pm Lolabelle Pancake:

To reiterate the results of Courtney's recent blood test: It's RED. And it's HOT!!!
  6:31pm P-90:

That piano playing is a bit blatantly sexual for me. I’m blushing with embarrassment.
Avatar 6:32pm Lolabelle Pancake:

His physician is Dr. Josef Mengele Bodenheim.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm ultradamno:

...and Fablio's blood ain't doodley squat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm zopa:

Dr. Joseph Mengele Bodenheim the infamous phrenologist?
Avatar 6:36pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Four out of five doctors lavishly compensated for their scripted testimony recommend Cocomalt™!
Avatar 6:38pm Lolabelle Pancake:

These are the same doctors who endorsed Lucky Strikes as a remedy for bronchitis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm dave wuz here:

jack teagarden would dip his refers in cocomalt just to piss off pops
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm ultradamno:

Oooh, those guys are good. Getting in on that British American Tobacco group consultation money.

P90 One must wear protection when listening to provocative piano playing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Is Cocomalt a good mixer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm ultradamno:

This is what's called a loss leader, then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm rrg:

From thin and frail to husky. That's for all of us.
Avatar 6:45pm dale:

the ovaltine people put rat poison in some cocomalt canisters but the kids couldn't get enough and had thinner blood to boot.
Avatar 6:45pm Jennica:

I can taste those candy cigarettes now.
  6:46pm Davefrom Brooklyn:

Davewuzhere,Julie Andrews insists you yeast and get pissed
Avatar 6:46pm HyperDose:

I'm drinking Ovaltine right now ahhh I feel the hemlock coursing through my veins!
Avatar 6:47pm StringOFperils:

I need a moral protractor, so I can figure out all the angles. Moral compass...aww, I dunno; I wouldn't want to stand out. People would thing I was "putting on airs."

i didn't need the candy cigarettes for my transition. drawers full of sample packs of ciggies that neither of my smokestacks, er, parents liked. my coolness came for free at a young age
Avatar 6:50pm HyperDose:

Why has no one made a compelling argument against shuffling yet?
  6:50pm ignatatus666:

Hey Codger
The listeners would appreciate if you have a Gus Bodenheim tribute day. We owe him and his endeavors for getting our nation to be as great as it is. If not for Gus my grandparents never would have survived
  6:51pm The Butterman:

Whose tinkling the banjer there? Could it be my man Harry Reser? Sounds like him.
Avatar 6:52pm Lolabelle Pancake:

Ignats: That's a SWELL idea. Let me take it up with Courtney after the show. Gus has so many—OK, a few—redeeming qualities.
Avatar 6:53pm StringOFperils:

Everyone's redeeming qualities these days, tradin' em in for quantities. Hmmpph. Lemmings. Now this music is quality. And I ain't for tradin'.
Avatar 6:56pm dale:

gus was a big proponent (profiteer) of that polio vaccine that kept many of us out of institutions and sweat shops and for that i am 25 percent grateful.

And just like that Courtney and Lolabelle, our time has once again come to an end. Take care all and have a HEARTY evening!

I pulled a Sophie Tucker Okeh out of a chicken coop once. It cleaned up surprisingly well.
