Hey BeachBums and Parrot Heads,
Our new feature is a weekly editorial by one of our BeachFront Radio Ambassadors.
This week we are featuring Craig Guest talking about how he met Jim Morris.
How I met Jim Morris, by Craig Guest
One summer 9 years ago, my friend & I took a week-end golf trip to Punta Gorda, Florida. My friend lived there and I was considering moving there. Punta Gorda was having a block party and Jim Morris provided the music. I knew right away that I had found a superstar! Within a year, my wife and I moved to neighboring North Fort Myers. We saw Jim at various restaurants 2-3 times a week. One night, Jim and my wife talked and discovered that they had worked in the same corporate HR Dept. that Jim left to start his Trop Rock singing career! (although it wasn't called Trop Rock yet at that time). What a coincidence! When we moved back to Pa., we saw Jim there, and at the Jetty in Grasonville, MD. He would always come over to talk. One day, I brought him Sunset Photos of Charlotte Harbor in Punta Gorda, as a gift. He loved them and said he would put them in his office at home. Sail on Jim!
