Don Steele personally selected Tom Kelly? That is completely made up. No one has ever said that line before. Luckily the KRTH PD who hired him, I think his name is Hamilton, can debunk that Steele endorsement crap. Steele had been dead for a while when Kelly was completely surprised when that call came from KRTH. And call it what you will, if you badger friends and associates for years to get them to lobby for you to get a star, maybe it's not begging. Maybe it is. But he didn't just apply. He lobbied hard for years. Interesting line... "If there is no check for $30,000, there is no star."If that is true and if Kelly can't raise the cash, then I guess this story and all others that say he is getting a star are worthless. Don't think CBS Radio/KRTH will be forking out that kind of vanity cash.

How bizarre. Most of the people who look at those Hollywood Walk of Fame stars are tourists who would have no idea who Shotgun Tom is. The locals walk right over them. Seems highly inappropriate to me. He is not a national or international celebrity but I guess money talks.

The most amazing/appalling facet of this exercise in futility is that a DJ apparently has groupies! This week's sign of the apocalypse? ;> )
