Local musicians help the hungry

The folks at WBLM (102.9 FM, "the Blimp") have banded together to raise money for the Good Shepherd Food-Bank, an Auburn-based nonprofit that helps feed hungry people across Maine, both on its own and in partnership with local food banks.

The BLM Band (a bunch of DJs and employees at the radio station) have written and recorded "The Blimp That Saved Christmas" - an optimistically named song - and made it available for download at the station's Web site, (Suggested donation: $2.) You can hear a streaming sample here.

It's written by Eben (who calls himself "Mr. Man" on the air when he joins the morning show), and was engineered and co-produced by Jim Begley at The Studio.
