It is rare when I don’t actually watch (or in this case listen) to one of these for Saturday Night Showcase, and I don’t usually do Halloween but this was on my Watch Later list and even though I didn’t get past a minute before noping out I thought this would be fun for all of you.
900 hotlines were a huge deal in the 1980s and 1990s. Instead of getting customer service you (or your kids who didn’t know better) would get a story with your phone bill being charged for every minute you were on. There were other uses too but for this showcase we have some dude pretending to be Robert England as Freddy Kruger telling horror stories. It’s a silly idea but horror stories are not what I’m into. If you are into it or just curious what one of these sounded like, then by all means enjoy and I hope you have a happy and safe Halloween.
