"Mad Fad — Teenagers are now using voice-o-graph recordings for sending messages. The kids think these are practical for retaining as souvenirs… If the old saying is true, ‘write and fear no man, don’t write and fear no woman,’ then it seems this would be good advice in respect to making a verbal record of poems and teenage jive talk."

From “Teen Talk” column, La Crosse (Wisconsin) Tribune, Sunday, August 24, 1947
