Phone Recording Archive

Copied from:

Here are a bunch of phone company recordings that I have recorded off of my phone. The files are available in .WAV format and also in .MP3 format, so you can choose whichever one you want. I got rid of all the RealAudio files in favor of MP3s because RealAudio software grew too big for my liking, and just about everybody has heard of the MP3 format by now.
