Music to My Ears XXXII
It has been brought to my attention that musicians such as Paul Melancon and Adam McIntyre occasionally call friends and fans to perform new songs life or to leave musical messages on answering machines and voicemail.

Now, I've called myself before to record nascent Anchormen songs on voicemail as a songwriting and memory aid -- and I've written songs based on old outgoing answering machine ditties -- but I don't think the Anks have ever played live for someone over the phone. It's an interesting idea -- like They Might Be Giants' Dial A Song, only using that push technology from days of yore.

Do any Media Dieticians know about other musicians or bands that perform phone shows? There might be something here.
