RRBJ had to fight our way through hordes of elementary and middle school boys (well, there were 3) to get a seat at Southfield Barbershop at 293 Southfield Rd but we made it and got a new haircut from owner/operator Kay. You gotta love a place that doesn't make its employees wear a uniform or a funky polyester smock.
Oscar is the man to see if you need your shoes shined. Where else can you get spiffed up at a "World Famous Shoe Shine Station?" While we were there one Barksdale Air Force pilot floated across the river to let Oscar work on his boots.
In a our continuing effort to keep corporate America from taking over the universe RRBJ says hurrah! every time you spend you money with a local operation. They can Keep Austin Weird we'll Keep Shreveport Wild!
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
