Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country

Did You Know: “Margaritaville” By Jimmy Buffett

Your ‘Tickets @ 2’ song of the day is “Margaritaville” by Jimmy Buffett, a song he wrote in Key West, Florida after finishing a tour with his group, the Coral Reefer Band.

Buffett sat at the Old Anchor Inn watching gridlock on the roads-and used it as inspiration as he composed the song. Buffett said: “I was lucky enough to get my thumb on the pulse beat of what people perceived the tropics to be.”

When you hear it play between two and three we’ll take caller #15 by calling 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win tickets to be at the K-EARTH-101 Music Festival and Aids Walk this Sunday at the Greek.
