Wake Up With Jim, December 9, 2021


On this mornings program we take a Route 66 trip with Jack Rittenhouse. Did I forget to mention that our odyssey takes place in 1946? 

Rittenhouse’s A Guide Book to Highway 66 didn’t sell as well as expected when it was first published. But the rerelease in 1988 hit at the dawning of the Route 66 renaissance. And so for legions of Route 66enthusiasts it has become a popular guide to the old highway. But it is also a time capsule. 

Join author Jim Hinckley as he pulls back the curtain, and transports the traveler to 1946.
