Moments ago around the corner from office I heard my co-worker  Mike Adams exclaim, "Oh my God. Eddie Money died."

This was especially tender to hear from him because he is absolutely Eddie's biggest fan around here.

Whenever Eddie played Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom or Aura here in Portland, Mike was always there singing along.  

We will be honoring Eddie Money's incredible musical legacy today on WBLM. Please feel free to share your memories and requests with us on our Facebook Page and by calling 207-792-1029.
