I must be the luckiest guy in the world to be able to captain one of the greatest rock stations in the USA! I’ve been on the Blimp for over 30 years, and no two days have ever been the same. I think that’s what gets me up at the crack of dawn. I call Blimp listeners “friends I’ve never met,” and it’s true. We share a common bond of living in Maine and a passion for Rock and Roll. It’s great to work with so many local charities and businesses as well. I'm wicked proud to represent Townsquare Media as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of the Maine Association of Broadcasters and as a board member of NESCom at Husson University. Thank you for all the years, and here’s to many more!

This Patriots-49ers Video Shows How Quiet Gillette Really Is
If you watch the Patriots on TV or listen to them here on WBLM, you hear a roar of the crowd. We all know, of course, that it's piped in crowd noise.
