A Guest and Songwriter on the Today Show!

It’s a beautiful summer day and we are sailing along with a perfect 15 knot breeze.  Lunch has been served and everyone has settled down for their afternoon chill session – snoozing, reading, etc.  Capt. is at the wheel and there is a guest sitting behind him on the cap rail who is noodling on his guitar.  Pretty soon the noodling turns into a song about the Riggin and pretty soon Capt. begins to feel as if he is starring in his own movie.

Jon Michaels wrote that song about the Riggin, called J & E Riggin of all things.  Susan Hickey Csikos, a deckhand and resident song bird at the time, sings that song on her album Water Meets Sand.

Now Jon Michaels is at it again and singing on the Today Show with a NBC jingle.  Go check it out.  Way to go, Jon!
