In the old days, when I was in Shreveport, I would have grabbed a breakfast at Murrell’s or Joe’s Grill, but both of them were gone nowadays, so I headed over to the new Another Broken Egg on Pierremont Road to start the day with coffee and an omelet. Then I went by the record stores I had not made it to the day before, including Disc Daddy and Lil J’s Music and More, which was owned by the radio celebrity Jabber Jaws, before hitting the interstate into Texas.
I dropped some promotional items and posters off at Sound City Records in Marshall, and normally would have stopped by M & M Records in Tyler, but I had spoken with the Dallas rapper Mr. Lucci, who had recently done a distribution deal with Select-O-Hits Music Distribution, and wanted to meet with me over dinner. So when I left Marshall, I stayed on the road straight into Dallas.
Lucci and I met up at Saltgrass Steak House, one of my favorite restaurants whenever I am in Texas. We talked over promotional ideas for the new release, and enjoyed a steak dinner, before I headed off to the hotel for the night.
