EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH BO DIDDLEY

FROM THE SHOW: BO DIDDLEY / TONY JOE WHITE

Heralded as one of the inventors of rock and roll, Bo Diddley explains how he got his name and how he created his landmark guitar sound.

MOTHER'S DAY

American Routes celebrates Mother's Day with Marty Stuart and his mom, Hilda. We'll talk about their shared love of photography and a certain girl singer, Connie Smith.

VISUALIZING MUSIC

How do we "see" sound? Local artist Bruce Brice depicts the big sounds and scenes of New Orleans in murals; and photographer Herman Leonard tells us about a half century chronicling the greatest jazz players. Plus Lafcadio Hearn's meditations on the blueing water enroute to the French West Indies. Hear music from Bo Diddley, Van Morrison, Billie Holiday, Mose Allison and more.

BO DIDDLEY / TONY JOE WHITE

On the next American Routes as the weather warms up we treat you to two very cool guests. Mississippi-born and Chicago-bred legend Bo Diddley talks about his songs "I'm a Man," "Who Do You Love," and that signature Bo Diddley beat. Tony Joe White comes up from the swamps to play an acoustic version of "Polk Salad Annie," among other tunes. Plus, a refreshing visit to a local New Orleans favorite, Hansen's Sno Bliz, servin' up the best sno-cones you've ever tasted.

OFF THE RECORD

It's a trip to the American Routes archives as we bring you outtakes, missteps and live performances from Bonnie Raitt, Bo Diddley, Ralph Stanley, Dr. John, and others. Plus live music cuts from Willie Nelson, the legendary Flatlanders and Cajun teen band Feufollet.

OFF THE RECORD

We're digging through our files to bring you great stories and live performances that never made the air! Lost tapes of Bo Diddley, Bonnie Raitt, Ralph Stanley, Dr. John and more. Plus live music cuts from Willie Nelson, the legendary Flatlanders and Cajun teen band Feufollet.

NAME THAT TUNE

We'll name some names with songs about "Corina" and "Mona Lisa" from artists like Bo Diddley and Fats Waller. Our guest is a 22-year-old blueswoman who's out to make a name for herself, Shemekia Copeland. Chuck Berry's pianist Johnnie Johnson will take us behind the scenes for the making of their first hit "Maybellene." And we'll step up to the bar to meet a Baltimore man who legally changed his name to American Joe. Plus the legend of outlaw Staggerlee.
