(Newser) – Tommy Tutone fans, you’re in luck: Now you can finally make Jenny yours—or at least have her number. The New Jersey DJ who shared a phone number with the title of the 1982 hit song, "867-5309," is now selling the famous digits on eBay. “It’s been awesome,” said Spencer Potter, 28, who requested the number 5 years ago.

“We thought it would be funny to call people from that number.” But it’s Potter whose phone has been ringing endlessly. He’s fielded 30 to 40 calls a day, and as many as 10,000 in a year. He even got a few dates out of it, from a woman who “thought I must be cool if I had the number.”
