Caldwell's Owner

In the early '80s I lived in Odessa. I own 2 Guild guitars (Mark lll classical and a D35) and needed new strings. One morning I stopped by Caldwell's and the local rock station was on site in a van. The station's mascot (guy in a chicken suit) jumped out of the van and danced with my 10 year old son. (cute!!) I met a man there who said he was the owner and told me that he had been with THE BAND. Over the years I've wondered if that were true. Is it?
