Does anybody call time and temperature anymore? Why is this service still around? Are there companies still paying to bring you the time and temperature? Moot in SoCal.
Nancy at Wordworking will let me know if I used “moot.” correctly and she led me to this astounding technological change:
What that means is that people throughout Southern California will no longer be able to call 853-1212 to hear a woman’s recorded voice state that “at the tone, Pacific Daylight Time will be . . .”
Jayne Barbe and Mary Moore were the two most listened to voices in America at one time. They told you the time, that circuits were busy, and that your call cannot be completed as dialed.
It is the end of time in SoCal. The bellweather for the rest of the country. Break out your placards.
The End of Time Is Coming.
ATT said so!
