Fans Gather At 'Other' Michael Jackson's Star

The name's the same, but it's a different MICHAEL JACKSON whose star on the HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME drew about 75 mourners. The star honoring the late singer was covered with scaffolding for the premiere of the new SACHA BARON COHEN movie "BRUNO," so several fans found the other MICHAEL JACKSON star, honoring the longtime LOS ANGELES radio talk show host.
The "other" JACKSON, still very much alive, hosted talk shows at KABC-A for several decades and later hosted at KRLA-A, KLAC-A, and KGIL-A, and previously hosted at Top 40 stations like KYA-A and KEWB-A/SAN FRANCISCO and KHJ-A/LOS ANGELES.
At his website, the talker wrote of the star, "I am (sic) willingly loan it to him and, if it would bring him back, he can have it. He was a real star."
