Re: Dial a Disc

I remember it too... think I even had a dial-a-disc coaster. But I was pretty young Tongue

Re: Dial a Disc

I remember it well, having on occasion worked on the landlines carrying the service. The code may have changed later, but IIRC it started on '16'.

Re: Dial a Disc

You could dial for a story for your children at one time - Bobby Brewster I think it was.
Don't suppose that you can do it now though.
Ey'up - that'd be an idea for the pot and if it was a good story folk might not want CS to answer!

Especially if it was a "whodunnit". and it got to the final revelation......  Cry
On the other hand, it would more likely be fairy stories,...... coming from CS at the moment  !  Grin

Yes I remember Dial a Disc from the 1970's.  Passed many a dull moment at School listening to music on the Schools pay phone.
