LINK: Cell Phone Ringtone History: A Polyphonic Wave of Success

Tedium: 

...Around the time that these devices were starting to appear on shelves, a British musician named Thomas Morgan Robertson was working on his debut album, The Golden Age of Wireless, a name in reference to radio, not cell phones. You might know the guy as Thomas Dolby. It’s a rather ironic album name given the second stage of his career.

I remember him doing an interview with Soledad O'Brien on the old MSNBC show The Site about this.  This was mid 90s or so. 

Yeah.  This dude doesn't have to work another day in his life, and he still makes music for us.  

Suck it, Don McLean
