Alabama Walk of Fame

The Walk of Fame stretches for two blocks, one of which is not engraved and the other, in front of the Alabama Theater, is maybe half-filled. The stars on the walk are not in very good shape.

[Tania, 09/26/2022]

The idea at its start probably seemed worthwhile, but it doesn't appear as if any names have been added since its initial class of 1989. Useful as a time capsule of celebrity, like finding the pilot episode of a disastrous, immediately cancelled TV variety show. Likely the only public tribute to include both Wayne "Trapper John" Rogers and Jake "Mr. Gospel Music" Hess.
