The Bo Diddley Beat: The Music of Bo Diddley and His Disciples

To mark the passing of rock 'n' roll pioneer Bo Diddley, Paul Ingles hosted this music-intensive hour of cuts from Bo's songbook as well as songs from some of the many rock and pop stars who borrowed his famous beat. Along with many of Bo Diddley's signature tunes, Ingles showcased music from The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, George Thorogood, Shawn Colvin, Pete Townshend, Joe Jackson, U2 and others - all who crafted songs based on Bo Diddley's famous syncopated beat.
