On February 24, 2008, a filming crew from Good Morning America was in the Delta. The result was a testament to one of the last remaining "jook joints" - Po Monkey's in Merigold, MS.  Featured in the clip is Mr. Willie Seaberry, the proprietor of Po Monkey's, and the band is T-Model Ford on guitar, Terry "Harmonica" Bean on harp, and Lee "Pocket Knife" Williams on drums.
