Bo Orloff was executive vice president of The Hornblow Group USA, They Might Be Giants' management, from the summer of 1989 until the spring of 1993. In his capacity as the Giants' "assistant manager" he performed a wide variety of duties for the band, including managing logistics for their tours, editing their fan newsletter, the TMBG Information Bulletin, and providing tech support for Dial-A-Song. Orloff was also responsible for the five Apollo 18-era online bulletins. Shortly after leaving Hornblow, he set up the very first TMBG website (in fact, it was one of the first websites devoted to any rock band). In 1995, Orloff spearheaded the creation of the first official TMBG website at tmbg.com, though since then it has gone through many new iterations, and currently redirects to theymightbegiants.com. Although he no longer managed the band at the time of its release, Orloff also compiled the statistics in the liner notes for A User's Guide To They Might Be Giants.
In a TMBG Info Club letter titled "An airplane is a bus with wings", John Linnell reported that "Bo Orloff, with his cybernetic vision, once described planes as "extremely slow matter transporters" (you get into position, vibrate for a few hours, and, voila! you've changed locations)."
