Attention all Parrotheads! Jordan and Alex take a trip to Key West to explore one of the breeziest, booziest songs in existence — and uncover the secret darkness at its core. They’ll discuss the colorful cast of characters that helped inspire the track, the drug runners who saved Jimmy’s life, and how Elvis Presley nearly wound up recording the tune. They’ll also recount the time Jamaican police nearly killed Buffett and Bono, the unproduced Harrison Ford/Robert Redford buddy movie inspired by the lyrics, and how the song birthed a multi-billion-dollar empire that’s made Buffett one of the richest celebrities in the world.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

And Introducing…we are taking a brief but fertile trip to Key West to visit a friend of quite a few folks: that's right, it's Jimmy Buffett. A son of a son of a sailor, a blender-drink connoisseur, a schooner crooner, a Conch Train stowaway, a vacation virtuoso, and an escape artist on the level of Houdini, Jimmy Buffett's life and career are truly one of one, and we learned all about it via his 2017 biography Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All The Way by Ryan White. So throw some lime juice and tequila in a glass...........grill up some hot dogs..........whip out the old Hawaiian shirt.........and listen to our podcast. It may not be Key West, and as I type this I'm immediately regretting not putting in some like wave/ocean sounds or seagull calls into the podcast but it's simply too late now.....but regardless it might take your mind on a brief vacation.Songs played on the pod:Jimmy Buffett - "Margaritaville" (Raxlen Slice 8 Bit Chiptune Remix)Jimmy Buffett - "The Christian?"Jimmy Buffett - "Come Monday"Jimmy Buffett - "Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude"Jimmy Buffett - "Margaritaville"Jimmy Buffett - "Cheeseburger in Paradise"Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett - "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere"
