“Joseph,” the man replied. “I have to say that you have peculiar tastes.”
“I know what I love,” Clara replied. “You said it shouldn’t work?”
“I had to replace the cord. I managed to turn the volume dial to power up the unit. Suddenly this thing started rhyming off numbers. Clear as day…” Joseph replied
“That is peculiar,” Clara said.
“Thing is, there are no AM radio stations in the area and nothing here picks up that signal,” Joseph said.
