In the United States, you simply dial the following number and follow the prompts to hear Ray talk about A Book About Death, Correspondence Art, Making a Rectangle, How to Become A New York Correspondence School Member and other wonderful things from the iconoclastic artist.
Call 1 516 299 9472.
When prompted, enter the stop number listed. The Stop Numbers are as follows:

As a footnote, I still have some of Ray's messages recorded from 1990-1992. One of my favorites is: "Hello Matthew, This is Andy Warhol calling from Heaven...."
Have any Ray Johnson phone messages? Let us know...
