We had a similar (if not the same) character terrorizing the CFTR newsroom around the same time.  His rant began with "Stop the silent conspiracy against the accountant..."  We all blasted him as he continued his tirade and then promptly hung up on him.  Ma Bell was notified and we were asked to call a Bell number immediately after the call came from Mr. Unhinged.  As I recall, we were told he was arrested and the calls stopped.  But we too wanted revenge.  I'm glad Brad was able to return the favour on our behalf at least to that individual.

This may be a longshot but does anyone have a lead on a gramaphone owner (or anyone for that matter) that might be able to play a metal disc that needs a wooden stylus?  A friend has two such discs that resemble CD's from 1941 - voice recordings of servicemen recorded during the war in England.  I'd love to get them digitized for her.

It's true.  They had an emotional goodbye at 8:15 am on CTV2.
