We’re celebrating another great show that came to Portland. 37 years ago today, WBLM welcomed back ZZ Top to the Civic Center on April 6, 1980. It was 3 years after they were the very first event and very first rock concert in the new building.
Today is a mighty significant anniversary for Portland, Maine! It was 40 years ago today that the very first event happened at the Civic Center. And of course here in Blimpville, the first event was a concert!
26 years ago today, ZZ Top played the second of two sold-out nights at the Civic Center in Portland. They were here on the Recycler tour and the song My Head’s in Mississippi was rockin’ the airwaves of WBLM!
It’s ROCKTOBER on BLM! And that means that all month long, we spotlight the Artist of the Day. We’ll be diggin’ deeper into the BLM A to Z Archives while you rock at work for songs you love, from the bands you worship…
