See A Signed ‘Thank You’ Note To WBLM From Gregg Allman
The other day, I was pawing through one of my desk drawers searching for something to write with. I didn't find a pen, but I did come across a real treasure. This is a personal note from Gregg Allman sent to legendary WBLM air personality José Diaz. It was written about 34 years ago.
The type-written 'Thank-You' message was in response to the Blimp's support of the Gregg Allman Band album, "I'm No Angel". The note closes with "Kindest regards" and is hand-signed by the man, himself.
I wanted to personally thank you and your staff for your help in making The Gregg Allman Band album "I'm No Angel" a success. We will be recording again at year end for release next spring.
In the meantime, I would appreciate your additional support in continuing to feature the tracks the work for you.
Kindest regards, (signed Gregg Allman)

We miss him and it's nice to be reminded that he was such a class act to his friends in radio.
His small act of sending a note of gratitude is something that we will forever appreciate.
