Holy Tire Iron
Holy Tire Iron, 'Inspiration is only a phone call away', is unique in being a phone zine by Reverend Raye, from West Somerville, Massachusetts. To 'read' it one calls up their phone number and listens to the stories that anyone can call in and leave on the line. It is not a 900 service, so to access it one must pay for long distance phone charges unless you live in the Boston area. Reverend Raye states that there's no advertising, the 'message changes every day,' and is made up of what callers call in. He also says he's been doing this for years. He calls it free public media and adds "Would you like fries with your art?"
