Oddly enough, A.J. and I became competitors of The Little Barn in 1980. A.J. had ventured out of radio and into retail selling waterbeds. I was ready for a change, as well, and went to work for him, eventually, as the Manager of A-J's Waterbeds in Little Rock, just a couple of doors down from The Little Barn. Bottom line, both stores eventually closed up shop after the waterbed craze reached it peak. By that time, I had returned to radio, doing overnights at what is now The Point, and getting a couple of simulcast hours on KAAY each night.
