Award-winning U.K. radio personality Graham Mack interviews Johnny B. via Zoom for his show “The Pod 20” on London’s Podcast Radio. JB gets real about his experiences in the radio & TV biz (from getting fired at Westwood One to being yelled at by Mary Tyler Moore…and more), wonders if he’d fit in if he moved to London, and talks about launching his “shit show” live from his new home studio during the pandemic and how he plans to make money doing it (spoiler alert: he doesn’t know).
After some trouble connecting via Zoom, Jimmy Buffett joins the show from his quarantine in “dry dock.” He talks about his latest album Life on the Flip Side, from the notes he got from Paul McCartney to the stories behind the songs Cussin’ Island, Hey, That’s My Wave, and Johnny’s favorite, Book on the Shelf (which also made Buzz “well up”). He talks about his postponed shows (“for 42 years I’ve been telling people I’d take a summer off, this is not what I had in mind”), how he’s staying connected to fans, and more. Plus: he performs an unplugged cover of Everybody’s Talkin’ by Fred Neil.
