“Shotgun Tom” Kelly On Getting His Star: “It’s Overwhelming”
Today’s the big day for K-EARTH 101’s own “Shotgun Tom” Kelly as he gets ready to receive the 2,496th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on the corner of Hollywood and LaBrea!
We talked to Shotgun this morning before the star ceremony takes place to get his thoughts on this exciting day!
“I feel excited. I was trying to get a little sleep last night, I think I got a little bit,” Shotgun told Gary Bryan. “All my friends and family are flying in from out of town…it’s overwhelming, Gary, it really is.”
For 16 years, Shotgun has been the friendly voice on air to help get you through your afternoon drive home, and he says it’s all the loyal K-EARTH 101 fans that are making this honor extra special.
“I’m just so thrilled about being part of Los Angeles radio history. That’s really a big deal,” he added. “The fans – it’s tremendous all the nice comments I’m getting from the fans on the phone. It’s wonderful.”
“Shotgun Tom” Kelly invites everyone to come celebrate this big honor with him at the ceremony taking place today at 11:30am! Special guest speakers include the legendary Stevie Wonder and K-EARTH 101’s program director Jhani Kaye.
