It's the anniversary of the first telephone call. On this date in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell spoke through his new invention to his assistant saying, "Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you." Since then phones and calls have popped up in countless songs. Share your favorites and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:
