Musical History Up for Sale

One of the few “Jenny” phone numbers left is for sale on eBay.

The phone number made famous in the Tommy Tutone hit “867-5309/Jenny” is up for auction, with a Philadelphia area code of 267.

As of yesterday, the lead bid was $720. The auction ends August 4.

Many of the “Jenny” numbers were taken out of service because too many people would call that number and ask for Jenny.

A New Jersey “Jenny” phone number was sold in February.
