Under the Boardwalk: Buffett’s Rendition Heartwarming for Jersey Shore…

David Carr of The New York Times, wrote a piece about the Jersey Shore post-Hurricane Sandy. He noted, “…While every public boardwalk on the Jersey Shore has opened, some businesses in commercial districts are shuttered, and nearby housing will take many more months and perhaps years to be rebuilt. In public statements, Gov. Chris Christie has suggested that 80 percent of the shore is back to what it once was, a generous estimate from the state’s biggest booster that is hard to reconcile with some of the more devastated areas…”

On the plus side, the Casino Pier in Seaside Heights just reopened. The JetStar Roller Coaster, which was sucked into the ocean during the storm, has since been removed and replaced by a ride called “The Super Storm.”

Music Jimmy Buffett

Peter Gladue, contributing music editor for Jedemi and Jersey Shore resident (outside of Atlantic City) sent over a link to this video that shows Jimmy Buffett singing The Drifters’ classic, “Under the Boardwalk.” Buffett put on a free concert on the beach in Atlantic City to celebrate the launch Margaritaville at Resorts Casino.

If I was a Music Director for a local station, I would be playing this all Summer long…

Yeah — It’s a good one!
