WBLM celebrates a New England rock n' roll legend and harmonica king. Happy 70th Birthday to Richard Salwitz! We all know him in Blimpville as Magic Dick of the J. Geils Band. He was born in New London, Connecticut on May 13, 1945. In the 60's he went to college in Worcester and became friends with John Geils and Danny Klein eventually forming the J. Geils Band in 1968. His harmonica gives the band a distinct sound and is a prominent instrument in most of their songs. Magic Dick signature song is Whammer Jammer and was a favorite of BLM DJs to play in the trailer days of the '70s that remains a Blimp classic today.

Join us tonight at 5:20 for live J. Geils Band on the WBLM Mini-Concert!
