A promotional video released in August 2018. Flansburgh describes the DAS Radio Network using plenty of echo and reverb.


Announced most recently on December 3, 2017 on Facebook and on a page on Their website, the Dial-a-Song Radio Network is an opt-in service for radio shows to feature new weekly releases.

Additionally, the announcement says "We are also booking band interviews and creating programming notes and custom audio materials guaranteed to make the Dial-A-Song segment of your broadcast a special highlight."

This iteration of Dial-A-Song will be accompanied by public releases to their YouTube channel. They recognize podcasters and online radio in their announcement, but it is also unclear if they are invited to participate; podcast hosts are asked to email a separate email address with details of their shows.

In 2017, They Might Be Giants announced that Dial-A-Song would return for 2018 in a similar fashion to the 2015 iteration. Unlike in 2015, however, the service would only feature new songs every two weeks instead of every week. On weeks without a song release, a video would be posted for each of the songs on I Like Fun which was released on January 19, 2018. The band also took a month-long break in August, when no material of any kind was released.

Additionally, while every song in the 2015 iteration had an accompanying music video and digital single released for it, the 2018 iteration has not continued this. While music videos are featured for I Like Fun tracks and many of the new songs, some, including "I Haven't Been Right Yet", and demo versions of "I'm Not A Loser" and "Last Wave", were released on YouTube with a mere static image shown as the song plays. Meanwhile, digital downloads for the new songs are only available through the Dial-A-Song Direct subscription available at dialasong.com, with the only exceptions being "All Time What" and "The Communists Have The Music".
