Owning a Phone Company for Fun and Profit – A Look Back at 1970’s Directcom

One of our favorite customers found this newspaper article about the Lee May family and the roots of Direct Communications in her personal archives, and turned them in to us today. This appears to have been published between 1976 and 1979, presumably in the Power County Press or Idaho State Journal. Read for a fascinating and entertaining look at how life was in rural telecom in the 1970’s.
