Well that’s cool . . but you just buy them. They aren’t awarded.
IIRC, you have to apply first (or someone makes the application for you). Then a committee (it used to be just Johnny Grant) decides if you are important enough to warrant a Star. If you are important enough, it costs $5,000 plus to get it. I remember there was one person who said his fans could raise the money if they wanted, but he wasn’t going to buy the Star. I cannot remember who it was. Happy for Larry Elder. I believe it was Dennis Prager who heard him on Cleveland radio first and recommended him to KABC in LA.
