Number That Won't Hang Up?

I couldn't think of a good subject line for this. I'm thinking a
buying a new phone, and would like to test its reception in the places
I might use it.

Is there a number I can call that will stay connected for long periods
of time (an hour or more)? I'd like to call it before I start to
work, and just listen the whole way. If it loses the signal, I'll
know there's an area of poor reception, and I'll call the number back
to find the next area of poor reception. I don't want a number that
will hang up after a short period, such as the local number for time,
because I don't want to have to keep dialing.

It doesn't have to be a toll-free number (all the plans I might buy
would have long-distance included).

Any ideas? Ideally, it would have some mildly entertaining and not
irritating program, like a news radio station but not a right-wing
talk show.
