Memory Jogger Podcast 18 - Times of the Telephone

On episode 18 of the Memory Jogger Podcast, Jason and Wyatt remember what telephones were like growing up in the 80s. We talk about when landlines were king, the setup in our homes, and try to remember our first home phone numbers. We also discuss the transition from rotary to touch tone, our first cordless phones, answering machines, and cellular car phones. Plus, we remember our favorite novelty telephones, calling (and getting in trouble) 1-900 hotlines, and pranks calls.
