GARCIA APPEARS IN PARK
KFOG, SAN FRANCISCO: A Foghead called the KFOG morning show to inform us
that a statue of Jerry Garcia had been erected in Golden Gate Park. When we
called the Parks and Recreation Department they knew nothing about it. KFOG
News Director Peter Finch went out to the park to investigate. He entered
the park at Fulton and Stanyan, looked to his left... and there it was!
Sitting inconspicuously under a tree - a full length, three-foot tall bronze
statue of Jerry Garcia, set in cement. Flowers hung from the statue and a
candle burned at the foot of it.
LATEST NEWS: Renee Richardson has confirmed that the statue has been removed
from it's previous location in the park as of Friday afternoon. No one has
claimed responsibility for the statue, which was first spotted in Golden
Gate Park on the fifth anniversary of Garcia's death.
