Look, we know you missed the first broadcast of Portland Phoenix local-music writer Sam Pfeifle on Charlie Gaylord's Greetings from Area Code 207 show on WBLM talking about our list of 2008's top 20 local albums. (Also don't miss Chris Gray's list of things you might have missed when they were first released.) We forgive you, because it was at 8 pm New Year's Eve, and we're not surprised the drinking started early.
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, wblm.
