NJ disc jockey to part with Jenny's number

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (AP) - After five years fielding thousands of
calls to one of rock 'n' roll's most celebrated phone numbers, disc
jockey Spencer Potter is hanging up on Jenny.
Her seven digits are familiar to anyone who paid attention to
pop music in the early 1980s: 867-5309, immortalized by the band
Tommy Tutone.
Potter and his roommates requested the number on a lark for
their home phone in northern New Jersey. They got it, along with
about 30 to 40 calls a day.
The 28-year-old Potter says he's selling his business, A Blast
Entertainment, and moving to New York. The business and the phone
number are for sale on eBay, where the high bid was about $1,000 by
Sunday morning.
