This is kind of weird, but we came across the Jam Line on a message board about the 1984 Apache Plaza tornado, and remembered that MPR did a story on them a couple years ago. They were phone lines where teens would call up and talk (a.k.a. flirt) with each other—or in the case of this audio clip, just shout randomly to each other. Did any of you ever call these, or know anyone who did? Kinda puts Twitter in perspective. Also, don’t ask us why we’re reading weather message boards, OK?
