Episode 219 - Interview with Author Rick Antonson 

Hello boys and girls!!

Time for another interview........

 For those of you who have a dream of riding the mother road, Route 66 there are many resources available to you. There are plenty of tour companies, such as Orange & Black that I interviewed not long ago. Videos on YouTube such as those produced by Roaming Rich for Hooked on Route 66 and of course maps, guides and books. While these resources will give you all the information you need to navigate the famed route, it is the books and audiobooks that will give you the more colorful perspective of the trip from Chicago to Santa Monica. My guest today is Rick Antonson, author of "Route 66 Still Kicks". It is a wonderful audiobook to listen to and it will give you the view of the Famed Highway that no other source will.  Enjoy!!

Thanks to our sponsors!!
