Evan Doorbell’s Phone Tapes

Evan Doorbell’s Phone Tapes are a well known “documentary” of how the phone system used to be like in the 1970s. Evan has recorded many hours of “phone tapes” of the old phone network.

Evan has graciously allowed Telephone World to host his narrated tapes as well as some of his newly released unnarrated “raw tapes”.
