It's still going! The very best of the Blimp from A to Z brought to you by Tyson Foods. Here are some facts about our 31st annual trip through the archives:
Longest letter…” T”..3 days long. Probably because we put all the "THE" songs in there.
Shortest letter “X”….3 songs...2 of them titled Xanadu.
First song….A Apolitical Blues- Little Feat
Shortest song; Her Majesty –The Beatles. 22 seconds
Longest Song; Mountain Jam LIVE-Allman Brothers….33:13
Bands with most Songs…..The Beatles…269 Songs
- Last Song for 2021…???? Who knows? In years past, bands have made a Z song just to be able to be the last song on our A to Z. One year, it was the "Zymurgy Zombie Dance" by The Mountain Top Music Center Jam Band in Conway, NH. But hey, if you write a song with a title that can go after it, we'll play that one!
Lots of ways to listen:
Where are the Blimp Archives? Legend has it that the treasure trove of Classic Rock is housed in the basement of our beautiful and wonderful home at One City Center. Now, if you've ever BEEN to the basement of One City Center, you know it can be a dark and scary place. You never know who you might meet down there. It's something right out of a movie. So we thought, why not actually MAKE a movie about the Blimp Archives? We got some of the legendary Blimp DJs and put together this fun trailer with an epic cameo from our great friend, comedian Bob Marley.

There's much more than just music in the WBLM A to Z archives. There are a whole plethora of amazing Maine rock and roll memorabilia. As we were digging through one of the largest Classic Rock collections in the world doing A to Z, we came across these gems. Concert posters, photos from the early days at the Blimp, and more. The concert posters are entertaining. Tickets prices at 5 or 6 bucks? You can't even buy a beer at a concert for 5 bucks! Ticket buying locations like Deorsey's. Carroll's Music. Manassas Music. Strombolis. All gone but not forgotten. Have fun listening to our annual trip through the archives.
