Buster Poindexter was the pseudonym of singer David Johansen of the New York Dolls while he was working with the Uptown Horns.  "Hot Hot Hot" was originally released in 1982 by the Montserrat musician Arrow, but the 1987 cover played here is so pervasive that Johansen considers it "the bane of [his] existence". This song has been adopted by Parrotheads the world over as the starting point for Jimmy Buffett concerts.

This Joe Bennett song was requested by Tim Clark of Long Beach, CA.  To make a request, you can simply e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

"A Coastal Kid" is from Mark Mulligan's South of the Border Again album. The best quote we have ever seen on a 'bio' page belongs to Mark: "I have no interest in singing a love song from the heart while some biker is puking on a pool table.  I'm simply someone who loves to sing for folks who want meaning and heart in their music."

Roger Creager is an adventurist; he does not like to sit still while the world passes by!  This cover of the Jimmy Buffett classic "A Pirate Looks at Forty" is from his Alive Across Texas album and is a great testament to surviving another year and making it around the sun one more time.  You can read more about Roger Creager here.

After beginning her career in the early 90's as part of the Grammy-winning alternative rap group Arrested Development, Nadirah Shakoor embarked on a sporadic solo career and then toured with the world famous Coral Reefer Band.

Steve Earle grew up in a tiny town outside San Antonio called Schertz.  His songs range in type from Bob Dylan to Hank Williams, Sr., and his subject matter tends to lean far left of typical Country music.  From his Revolution Starts Now CD, we are featuring his song "Home to Houston".

"Chicken Fried" is the Zac Brown Band's fourth song to make it to the Gulf Coast Cowboy Hour.  His distinctive upbeat, live-life-to-its-fullest approach to music makes him a natural for our show.  This was requested by Todd Dye from Oklahoma City.  Be sure to e-mail in your requests!

From his 2007 album Beachcombin', KD Moore brings us this tune alongside Greg "Fingers" Taylor.

The second Little Feat song to be featured on the Gulf Coast Cowboy Hour, "Dixie Chicken" is the title track of what is often considered their landmark album.  This version of the song is from the 2008 Join the Band album.

Jimmy Buffett is a Christmas baby, born December 25th, 1946 - in other words, he turned 65 this year!  Hard to believe that the King of Gulf Coast troubadours has been entertaining people for over 45 years.  To celebrate his (belated) birthday, we are playing three songs: "Changes In Latitudes" from his Songs You Know By Heart album, and "Son of a Son of Sailor" and "Love and Luck" from his live Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays album.  As we enter into the new year, we wish you, your family, and your relations "Love and Luck" for 2012!
