For this first episode I sat down and laughed a lot with my good friend Jim Mayer from Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band. We get to hear about everything from Jim's beginnings as an upright bass player in the Jazz scene in St. Louis, competing with his brother who could practice the longest, to stories from his many tours as a Coral Reefer. Toward the end of the episode we get to meet Jim's alter ego, children's entertainer "Uncle Jim". Oh, and we also get a solo bass performance of "Margaritaville".
