Re: Radio Margaritaville

Interesting topic... I've got RM on Sirius in my truck and it plays a lot. I like most of it. That being said, though, I do miss the kinda weird stuff RM played in the old days (pre Sirius). They had some strange captain guy telling stories, and a couple of other unique segments. Just don't hear tha...

Re: Grenada

hey.... don't know a lot about Grenada, except that my daughter was there for two weeks with a university exchange program this summer. She was able to get easy flight out of Miami, had no trouble on the island with buses, etc. Said it was beautiful, everybody nice, helpful. Sounds like a place we'r...

Re: Is this how you show appreciation to your fans?

We were at the STL show just a couple weeks ago. It was HOT. At the gate, bottles weren't allowed, but they actually gave out plastic cups and you could pour your bottle of water in the cup and take it in. I get the bottle thing.... safety... almost any big event you go to, even if they do serve bot...

Re: Best closing or encore song?

I know it's not a Jimmy song, but.... back in 2008 he did an encore in Las Vegas by covering "Wildflowers". That was my favorite encore of all time, and I don't know that he's performed it ever again. He talked about his daughter a bit, and his version of the song is one for the ages. :-) You can do...

Re: NCAA Championship

Holy smokes, what a game. Poorly officiated (in my not so humble opinion) but you couldn't have asked for a more exciting ending. Worth seeing right to the very last second (and then another half second or so!) Congrats to Villanova and Congrats to the TarHeels. Instant classic. :D _lr3PGAM-0U

Sail on Justice Antonin Scalia

Justice Scalia..... many of us considered you a giant fighting for the Constitution. Some didn't. Either way, there is no arguing your towering intellect and dedication to our nation. Our thanks and our prayers for your family. http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z166/krusin1/scalia_zpsw5ycjiiw.jpeg

Re: Buffett song Clue

Well.....

You sure it's 84 "DAYS"?

Margaritaville entered the charts at #84.

Manana peaked at #84.

(*there is a chance that my facts are fictional, but I dont think so....i think it's a reliable source)

That's about all I got... Good luck. :D

There are some people here who are a lot more tech savvy than I am, so I'll throw this out there hoping someone has an answer.
