Turning over the mattress biz

I'll be on KPCC's "Off-Ramp" this weekend talking about local retailer Sit 'N Sleep and the ins and outs of the mattress game with host John Rabe. It's a follow to the piece I did in the August issue of Los Angeles magazine. I ham it up as Sit 'N Sleep owner Larry Miller ("Sit 'n Sleep will beat anyone's advertised price or your mattress is freeee!") and John Rabe plays Irwin the accountant ("You're killing me, Larry!"). Show airs Saturday (12-1 p.m.) and Sunday (7-8 p.m.), but they've already posted it on the KPCC Web site.
