If you have ever been to a concert at the Pageant, a movie at the Tivoli, bowled a few frames at the Pinup Bowl, ate a burger at Blueberry Hill, or stayed the night at the Moonrise Hotel, Joe Edwards had something to do with that. Joe Edwards is Mr. University City Loop.
When you take a stroll in the University City Loop and look down, you will see the St. Louis Walk of Fame. Another Joe Edwards creation. Chuck Berry, Agnes Moorehead, Kevin Kline, Vincent Price and 136 more people from St. Louis who made a national impact, forever etched into the sidewalks of the University City Loop.
Joe has now published a book called: “St. Louis Walk of Fame – 140 Great St. Louisians” It is available in bookstores everywhere. I had the extreme pleasure to sit and chat with Joe Edwards for the Metro Show. Our conversation is below.
