The Hello CD Club was started by John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants. I was a big fan of the band. My first concert that I ever went to was They Might Be Giants. It was in Huntington, Long Island at the IMAC Theater which is still around. It was the town that encompassed the village that I grew up in (Northport). I was in 8th grade at the time. I think I went with my friend, Ken Larkin (you’ll be hearing more about him later). I’m pretty sure other people went as well, but I can’t remember. It was in support of their album “Apollo 18”. Great album. Anyways, I was a huge fan. They used to have something called “Dial-A-Song”. You would call up this number in Brooklyn and listen to a song they did on their answering machine. It changed quite frequently. And I called frequently. My parents didn’t mind since it was basically a local call. And it so happened that I lived in the same neighborhood they did when I moved to Brooklyn years later (Williamsburg/Greenpoint). Later on, I got some information about the Hello CD Club through them. Obviously, I joined up. I remember saving money that I made mowing lawns and babysitting. It was a lot better than Columbia House or BMG because I didn’t know what I was going to get before I got it. Some CD’s were okay. Some were really good. Basically, it was all rare stuff. Even to this day. It was all about the music. It was definitely an influence. Made me want to go out and find other music that I couldn’t hear on the radio. I have compiled a best of the Hello CD club. I wanted to share this.
