Tonight’s WBLM Mini-Concert
Alrighty Blimpville, it’s St, Paddy’s Day. So, AS IF we’re not rockin’ live with our favorite band from Dublin tonight!
39 years ago today, Saint Patrick’s Day 1978, U2 won a talent show. The prize was cash and studio time. The demo they recorded was later heard by CBS Records in Ireland. A very lucky day in U2 history and an important step towards eventually becoming one of the biggest bands in the world, ever.
Join us tonight for live U2 at 6:20 on the WBLM Mini-Concert!
Watch U2 perform on St. Paddy’s Day at the Garden in Boston in 1992, complete with Zoo TV footage…I was there with a bunch of Blimpsters! Were you? Bono greets the crowd saying, “I’ve never been in Boston on St. Patrick’s Day…now I know why! You bastards are louder than the band!”
