Local DJ pushes for public pajama protest
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A local radio disc jockey is planning a pajama protest in response to a Caddo Parish Commissioner's proposal.
Michael Williams plans to present a proposal to ban people from wearing pajamas in public in Caddo Parish.
Stiffler, the midday DJ for K94.5, calls the proposed ban a joke, and has vowed to wear pajamas for the rest of the month – and he wants everyone to join him. "We're asking people to wear their pjs to rebel. I don't know if rebel's really the right word. To help bring Commissioner Mike Williams to his sense. Because pjs – it's an American way of life. I mean, let's be honest, who doesn't want to be comfortable in their day-to-day, you know, life?"
That's why he's pushing "Pajamuary." While the trademarked phrase existed long before the flap over flannel pants in public fired up in Caddo Parish [read more about the origin of the term here], Stiffler says the timing couldn't be better to take advantage of the concept to make his point.
For the rest of the month, Stiffler says he'll be donning his bedtime best everywhere, from work to the grocery store – and even to the club.
A special event is planned at Phoenix Underground on Friday night, where pajamas will not only be optional – but encouraged.
