An anthemic take on the melding of media and reality, “T.V. Show” was played only once, on 11/8/91. Perhaps in today’s age of reality TV the song could have caught on, but in 1991 it was an oddity. The song also appears on The Dude’s album Crimes of the Mind.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $750,000 to support music education for children – 210 grants in 43 states, with more on the way.
