WHAT HALF OF OUR FRIENDS STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND ABOUT
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS' PODCASTS...
A. You can download these programs to any computer and listen to them through any MP3-playing device.
B. They Might be Giants podcast is entirely free.
C. Once you subscribe you can expect a new podcast about once a month.
D. All you need is an iTunes-like program installed your computer, which is also a free download.
All the information you need to get there is at the bottom of this email.
Every month or so They Might Be Giants creates a podcast - really a radio special - that includes exclusive new material, unusual songs from the vaults and other unique features we haven't even thought up yet. Hosted by public radio's beloved Cecil Portesque, the program's producer and archivist is Julian Dufy.
Team TMBG as has created the possibly unobtainable goal of one million subscribers for the podcast before the end of 2007 and we need your help reaching that goal. From the first two podcasts posted we've had over one million downloads, which suggests we are essentially half way there. If you enjoy the podcast, all we ask of you is you help us enlist your friends in this unique and totally free service - perhaps even forward them this email. Don't break the chain!
A NOTE FROM FLANSBURGH
"Hey! We want to tell you that TMBG is planning a southern run in the end of April. We should be out for about a week or 10 days. Dates to come shortly.
Also, I'll be performing in People Are Wrong! for one special night at Joe's Pub on March 19th - get your tickets at telecharge.com or at the Joe's Pub box office, 425 Lafayette St. in Manhattan.
Hope to see you there!"
