The Guardian of Route 66, Angel Delgadillo, from Seligman, AZ is a true Route 66 icon. At almost 90 years old, Angel talks about his earliest memories of growing up along Route 66 and his efforts to establish the very first Route 66 Association.
During my talk with Angel, he talks about his earliest memories of Route 66, the reason why his parents unpacked the truck minutes before leaving for the promise of California, his daily encounters with tourists all over the world visiting his shop in Seligman, and why Route 66 is so important to him.
At the very end of the show, Angel’s daughter, Clarissa, shares her own personal thoughts on what makes her dad so very special.
