Bo Diddley / Tony Joe White


July 6th, 2005 ~ 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.
