I know Id pay 50 cents a minute to call City Hall and hear Mayor Nickels breathlessly read municipal code to me.

I've already heard enough of Nickels on KEXP encouraging me to "shower with a buddy".

That's quite a twist on the SPL's old Dial-a-Story program, which let kids call up the library to listen to a story every week. Of course, the Seattle Public Library didn't charge extra for the service.

Anyone remember Mona Moan?

Call her up (free local call), and she read the time in a porn star voice & followed up with a fake orgasm. Back in the 90's.
