NOSTALGIA for Western Electric telephones.
I wish I had one. I was doing a radio interview with the CBC once while visiting my brother's and they didn't like the sound quality. My brother dug out an old Western Electric phone from the closet, plugged it in (via an adapter that turned its 4-prong plug into an RJ11) and the CBC engineer exclaimed "You sound wonderful! How did you do that?"
