(CBS 8) - For more than 40 years, Shotgun Tom Kelly has been entertaining radio listeners both here in San Diego and in Los Angeles.

While he's received many awards for his work, he was thrilled to learn on Thursday that he's going to have a permanent tribute on the streets of Hollywood.

Shotgun Tom says he was also deeply moved by a letter Dick Clark had written, just before his death, to the Walk of Fame nominating committee on Kelly's behalf.
