Warning: Be patient! After Pat’s greeting, there’ll be a long enough silence that you’ll think something’s wrong–but it’s not. Also, there are a lot of LONG busy signals after the caller hangs up.

These messages (mainly hang-ups) were left between March 22 and May 25, 1986.

Wanted: Someone who can explain the technology of Radio Shack answering machines ca. 1985. Mainly, I’d like to know why there are long busy signals after some hang-ups and after others, nothing.
