Rockford Files: The Case of the Homebrew Answering Machine

I always loved the funny intro to the Rockford Files. I decided that I wanted to recreate that answering machine that caused Jim Rockford so much frustration. It seems he never got the big pay day he was always searching for. That was something we had in common. So I cobbled together an Arduino Uno, a Seeed Lab relay shield, an Adafruit FX Sound Board, a ring generator, an old Western Electric touch tone phone from the early 80's, and an old radio from a second hand store that cost a whopping 50 cents. The .wav files can be found on the internet.
