Nowadays we're very accustomed to recording and hearing the sound of our own voices. But in the 1930s many people were doing it for the first time. And a surprising trend began. People started sending their voices to each other, through the postal service. It was literally: voice-mail.
 
Most of these early voicemails have been lost to history, but Princeton Professor Thomas Y. Levin has a growing collection of about 4,000 in his Phono Post Archive. We recently combed through the archive and discovered that many of these audio letters are about the same thing: Love.
 
Today we bring you a Voicemail Valentine. You can hear it on NPR's All Things Considered at 5:50 EST and on The Radio Diaries Podcast.
 
Happy Valentine's Day, 
 
Joe, Sarah, Nellie, Ben and Deb
