Jimmy calls in to Radio Margaritaville

Jimmy Buffett called Radio Margaritaville‘s program director/afternoon DJ Steve Huntington from Highway 101, near Beullton, California today, while making a solo road trip to Santa Cruz, with surfboards on the roof and his bike tied to the
rear of his rented white VW van. He was retracing steps from his days working the clubs of the California coast.

Buffett discussed getting a stand up paddle surfing lesson from surf god Laird Hamilton in San Onofre, playing Tinley/Chicago with Sonny Landreth who will be there for a blues festival.

He mentioned his trip to Hawaii in October, and a trip “Down Under” presumably to Australia.

He also discussed taking a video crew to the spot in Tahiti where he wrote “One Particular Harbour”.

Hear replays tonight with Miles Hampton(7/11) at 9pm and 11pm ET on Radio Margaritaville/SIRIUS 31, and radiomargaritaville.com.

Update: You can also catch replays of the interview at 7am & 9am with Carson Cooper on Thursday, July 12th.

Article on Buffett’s business empire

The International Herald Tribune has a good article on Jimmy Buffett’s business empire: “Spotlight: Margaritaville is Jimmy Buffett’s empire”

Buffett said he owed much of his business acumen to the early days of his career, when, as a reporter for Billboard, the music magazine, he learned that a knowledge of business was a necessity for performing artists. The reason, he said, was that the music industry was not structured to meet the artist’s best interests.

He has also taken a page out of the book of another Buffett: Warren, the billionaire investor and a longtime friend. Jimmy Buffett said he valued the concept of “management in place” that he learned from watching Berkshire Hathaway: Hire competent people, then “just let them do it.”

Time’s Readers ask Jimmy 10 questions

Time Magazine asked their readers for 10 questions to ask Jimmy Buffett. Here are a couple of them:

Q: Is it still fun? Be honest.

A:Yeah. I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t fun. You know, I just played a show in Virginia where 26,000 people stood in the rain to hear us. That makes a mark on you. We’re showing people how, in a pretty crazy and whacked-out, dangerous world, you can still have fun.

Q: After all your success, what’s left?

A: When it is all said and done, I am going to teach. There comes a point where you want to share your wisdom if you get to do the things I’ve done. Of course, if you want to see me teach, I don’t think I will be at Fargo in February. You might have to find me at the University of Hawaii.
