Prank caller Tom Mabe was working in his Louisville, KY office when he began his personal crusade against telemarketers, fabricating elaborate stories to exasperate the phone solicitors to the point where they hung up on him. In time he began recording the calls on his answering machine and playing the tapes for friends; soon Mabe started appearing on radio morning shows as well, ultimately financing a CD collection of his best pranks titled Revenge on the Telemarketers. After a copy of the disc made its way to the offices of Virgin Records Nashville, the label signed Mabe and issued Revenge on the Telemarketers, Round One in early 2000, which featured several bits from Mabe's first CD and plenty of new material. A second volume followed before year's end.
