It was 7 years ago today, March 7, 2007,  that we delivered the very sad news that Blimpville's beloved Bill Chinnock was gone. Bill was born Newark , New Jersey on November 12, 1947. He was a leading member of the Jersey Shore music scene during the late '60s, playing with  future members of the E Street Band.  Eventually, Bill became the legend of the north country playing every inch of it and settled in Maine.  Bill Chinnock is such an important part of Maine's music history and WBLM is honored to have featured his songs over the years. Still today, not a week goes by without at least one request for 'Dime Store Heroes'. Let's raise a glass to the memory of Bill Chinnock and enjoy a video of him performing below.
