THE RETURN OF DIAL-A-SONG …AND THE NEW DIAL-A-SONG RADIO NETWORK!
This is the deal—online every Tuesday for the entire 2015 calendar year we, Brooklyn’s Ambassadors of Love They Might Be Giants, will be presenting a new song. Yes we are returning to our roots as the progenitors of the FREE MUSIC FOR EVERYBODY GENERATION. Posting online every Tuesday, we will be presenting new original recordings for your streaming and sharing pleasure at www.dialasong.com.
We have partnered with Slate’s The Gist with Mike Pesca to premiere the new songs on their Monday night podcast, and we are coordinating with a tight network of college, community, and commercial radio shows interested in terrestrially broadcasting the sonic glory that is the weekly installments of Dial-A-Song. We will be creating custom materials for your show, organizing interviews and other programming notes to make this short Dial-A-Song segment in your broadcast a real highlight.
So, in short Mr. or Ms. DJ—we have a new deal and we want you IN. You’re independent! We’re independent! Let’s do this!
Here is a mysteriously short video about the return of Dial-A Song
And here is a demonstration video in the manner in which the songs will be presented on the site. At Dial-A-Song we are looking to the highly practical youtube format to launch these tracks into the internet world.
Since posting this earlier this week, we have had over 60 like-minded DJs step up and join the experiment in human happiness that is They Might Be Giants Dial-A-Song. These are some of the towns already on board:

Q:When I saw that Flood was uploaded earlier today, I immediately stopped what I was doing and just started listening at school. These uploads are amazing!

You call for tattoos just as I’m about to get mine started! I am celebrating the approval of my doctoral thesis (in music, about the relationship of the song ‘Yellow Bird’ to steel pan) and my love of TMBG in one lovely avian tattoo. I’ll let you see the result when it’s finished.

Q:Hey Flans, could you tell us about some of the pedals you use to make your flans-tar sound so flans-tastic?
I;m sort of moving things in and out right now—more to report soon! But I am flattered by the interest!
Here is your performance of a much anticipated comeback. Thank you for playing “Man, It’s So Loud In Here” at the Wolf Den!
