Americana can mean a lot of different things. To Sam Manno, it brings to mind Robert Nighthawk, who Sam happened upon on Maxwell Street in Chicago one cold April morning in 1983. Sam took these pictures while working on a documentary project about Maxwell Street. He'll play some Robert Nighthawk on tonight's "Get To That", 10:00 p.m. on your radio or online.
