Did Billy Crystal Really Work for WBLM?

Someone told us today that they had heard that Billy Crystal once worked for WBLM. It’s one of many stories we get from time to time about the legendary Blimp. Like….That we did not hire Howard Stern when he came for an interview way back in the 70s (TRUE). That several Stephen King stories mention WBLM (ALSO TRUE). That WBLM actually stands for We Believe in the Legalization of Marijuana (PLEAD THE 5TH). And that at one point in time every single person in the state of Maine actually had visited the Blimp trailer in Litchfield (MAYBE?).

Actually, Billy Crystal DID work for WBLM. In the movies. Remember City Slickers from 1991? Billy played a Radio Sales Executive that worked for…WBLM! Here’s the classic Classroom Scene where he talked about the wild and wonderful world of WBLM radio sales. Pay attention for the BLM mention!

Now, The REAL¬†head of WBLM Radio Sales is not the sourpuss that Billy Crystal played, but rather the most positive, hilarious and energetic guy we know. His name is Mike Marcello. ¬†He’s also the ONE New England Patriots fan that has ever got in Rodger Goodell’s grill. We hope one day they make a City Slickers 4 so he can be in it!
