Wicked Maine Holiday Classic: ‘The Blimp That Saved Christmas’
10 years ago, we teamed up with our good friend Eben Clukey to make the WBLM Christmas song. We're proud to say it has become a Wicked Maine Holiday Classic! It's the story of how Santa's sleigh breaks down and the Blimp comes to the rescue. Eben is the fella who’s responsible for other BLM favs like “Mr. Man” and “Frickin’ Freezin”. He’s a very funny man, talented songwriter, and superb musician.
The WBLM Band and Eben recorded “The Blimp That Saved Christmas” at The Studio in Portland with the great Jim Begley producing. That’s me (the gu) and Dom taking turns on lead vocals and Eben doing that wicked festive narration. GFAC 207 local music host, Charlie Gaylord rips the killah lead guitar.
