We’ve got the details on Jimmy Buffett’s upcoming guest appearance on the CBS show “Hawaii Five-0.”

Buffett will play Frank Bama, a helicopter pilot and friend of Joe White. Frank Bama is of course the name of the central character in Buffett’s novel “Where is Joe Merchant?”

Here is the episode synopsis:

Meanwhile, the Five-0 investigate the murder of an investigative reporter who seems to have ties to Jenna, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, Nov. 21 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Singer and songwriter Jimmy Buffett guest stars as Frank Bama, a helicopter pilot and friend of Joe White’s who helps the Five-0 in North Korea.

      I am not happy with Mr. Buffett at this time, during MOTM at the street fair  I asked him if he could
      autograph my pirate flag……He walked past me like a Horse with blinders on. So much for my following
      him for thirty years.

        Actually 64 and another month 65!  I would just be thrilled to get close enough to have him maybe hear me! Consider yourself lucky!

      I can understand your disappointment, but he might not of heard you, or he possibly just wasn’t signing autographs on that day. A lot of times people forget that singers are people too. They have good days and bad days just like we do. Sometimes they are crunched for time. Who knows why he did not stop and sign your item. I just wouldn’t let one bad experience taint a negative image of a great man. If you want his autograph, just write to the Key West store. I did, and he signed my photo with my name on it and mailed it back to me. 30 years is a long time to throw away from one bad episode, or what you perceive as a bad experience. Put yourself in his place. He can’t possibly stop in a large crowd and sign everyone’s items.
