Please reprogram the Cyberbass so that the next time it calls me, it
dials 1-800-C-A-L-L-A-T-T!  Thank you.

Seriously, your typo was more correct than what you had intended!  :)
Phono plugs & jacks are the RCA type originally developed by RCA for use
with... record players / phonograph cartridges!  Kim's treatise on 1/4"
plugs and switch boards is spot on.
