Retirement. Listing has already been reduced $1.5m so it's a bargain...

A couple of years ago, Samantha Brown was taping at least part of her BVI show with Quito. Unfortunately, my local station stopped having her travel show before this went on the air. I'll sure miss Quito if he isn't playing anymore - that is if i ever get back.

Oh no, more that changes. I know it is inevitable, but sooooo many terrific memories there , sad. Not to mention his serenading us through the pandemic!

This could be the beginning of a remake of the Herman Wouk classic Don't Stop the Carnival. Later made into a musical by Jimmy Buffett, a fun and somewhat under appreciated album.

I first met Jimmy in 1984 right after my first trip to the BVI's. He told me how he rented the red roofed house at the West End of CGB and wrote "Cheeseburger in Paradise". I told him I thought I might buy a home there and he told me to read "Dont Stop the Carnival" first...boy was he right!! Agree that the album from the musical is really good..Thanks for the advice Jimmy..few regrets!

I just think they might be one of the few who might be interested although they have one in STT.At least Tortola and CGB have real Jimmy connections that they could promote. Maybe a package..one week on STT and one at CGB..not wishing this ..just thinking out loud.If I was the agent handling this I'd be in touch with them.

Hey Mal ,
Would that red roof house have been the CGB House?

Yes..rented by Jimmy in the late 70's and then the lady who married baseball hall of famer Sandy Koufax..quite the celeb connection!
