Like most of you, I grew up listening to WBLM and going on their "Concert Caravans", calling in requests on snow days after hearing the "No School" announcements and listening to Dr. Demento and the Cosmic Muffin. I bought my first BLM T-shirt at Levinsky's in Biddeford and listened to the Blimp on my boombox while catching rays by the lifeguard stand in OOB. I became a D.J. here in August 1989, and I love every day of hanging out with our hilarious, salty listeners. We've been through good times and bad together, and I feel blessed to have such great friends. Bring us upta' camp with you, enjoy a Journey double shot at work or spin the Wheel of Meat, we'll start the day off together on the right foot! My two daughters and husband, Mark, are the best people I know. We love to travel together and enjoy sushi for Family Date Night.

Seasonal Allergies? Here’s a Maine-Made Cure for You, Honey
