The Apology Line was an art project by Allan Bridge. For 15 years, anonymous confessions were collected by an answering machine. Covered by
This American Life, and an early Wired Magazine article, The Apology Line predated online confessionals like grouphug.us by over 20 years.
The resulting messages were compiled into tapes. The long out-of-print cassette The Apology Line: Uncut Gems From Year Zero (1980-1981) is available in mp3 form: Side A.Side B. Fascinating, funny, and disturbing, all at once.
