I must be the luckiest guy in the world to be able to captain one of the greatest rock stations in the USA! I’ve been on the Blimp for over 30 years, and no two days have ever been the same. I think that’s what gets me up at the crack of dawn. I call Blimp listeners “friends I’ve never met,” and it’s true. We share a common bond of living in Maine and a passion for Rock and Roll. It’s great to work with so many local charities and businesses as well. I'm wicked proud to represent Townsquare Media as Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of the Maine Association of Broadcasters and as a board member of NESCom at Husson University. Thank you for all the years, and here’s to many more!

Do You Remember The Classic Pepsi Commercial That Was Filmed in Maine?
Pepsi People Feelin' Free. That was the title of a Pepsi commercial that was filmed in Maine way back in 1973. The commercial actually played during the 1974 Super Bowl Pretty cool. The spot's premise is classic: a bunch of cool 70's kids get together and throw a charity car wash. All while hammering some Pepsi-Cola. Check out the price of the car wash at the beginning of the spot....only a BUCK!. Hey, it was 1973, after all. The best part of this commercial, other than it being filmed in Maine, is the 70's fashion and the throwback cars. And of course, the schmaltzy Pepsi singers and jingle. Be wary-the song will be stuck in your head all day.
