St. Louis riverfront statue being relocated to higher ground
Charlie talks with the Rev. Larry Rice who wants the homeless at the Galleria; with Sgt. Jason Grellner of Franklin County, MO, about a woman cooking meth at a local WalMart; with Bob Edgar of Common Cause and Chuck DeVore of the TX Public Policy about ALEC; and with STL Sculptor Harry Weber about today’s Dred and Harriet Scott statue dedication.
The statue is 10-feet tall and weights more than 1,000 pounds.
Charlie broadcasts a two-hour special, LIVE from Chuck Berry Plaza in University City’s Delmar Loop, on Chuck Berry Statue Dedication day. Guests honoring the father of rock ‘n roll, Chuck Berry, include Billy Peek, Ron Isley, Bob Kuban, MIchael McDonald, Boz Scaggs, Joe Perry, Ray Stevens, Little Richard, Dennis Edwards, Merle Haggard, Jimmy Webb, Ruperrt Holmes, Elvis Costello, Bowser from Sha Na Na, and Simple Plan.
“St. Louisans should be proud to know one of their own created the most significant musical art form following World War II,” Brennan said. “As John Lennon said ‘If rock & roll had a different name, it would be Chuck Berry’. I am proud St. Louis is recognizing Chuck’s genius.”
