This was originally created by the wonderful Hello Music Club (an
enterprise started by John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants, in which
subscribers would received a newly recorded EP-length CD monthly). The
opening track is a song using the words of octogenarian folk poet Ernest
Noyes Brookings (see also the Lyrics by Ernest Noyes Brookings series),
then followed by eight Halloween tales culled from Greenberger\'s
conversations with nursing residents in Boston. Music is performed by Phil
Kaplan (Men & Volts, Bangalore) and Sean Slade (producer of everyone from
Radiohead to Hole to Warren Zevon).
Conceived by David Greenberger.
Music composed by Phil Kaplan.
Stories from Duplex Planet (issue #116).
