On February 23, 1967, across the Great Pond at Abbey Road Studios, The Beatles were recording "Lovely Rita" for Sgt. Pepper. Meanwhile, at the Augusta General Hospital, I let out my first cry to the world. Twenty years later, I played "Lovely Rita" on the radio station I grew up with, WBLM. Taking over the Night Flight for the Captain, who moved to host The WBLM Morning Show, a teenage dream was realized. I'm a dyed-in-wool Mainah. In the '80s at Cony High School, I had a different colored Blimp t-shirt for each day of the week. When I'm not rockin' live with BLM, I'm rockin' at home in Westbrook with my wife, Sherry, and sons, Sam and Carter. Rip it hahd weekday afternoons at work and on the way home! Like me on Facebook! And remember, if the conniption fits, wear it!
