I heard this for the first time over the weekend, "Mona" by Bo Diddley, a very good rocker. Why is it that the radio stations rarely play his music, and if they do, it's only "Bo Diddley" or "Say Man"?

offhand, i'd say it's because those two songs were diddley's highest chart entries. #1 and #3 respectively (US R&B charts). the only other diddley top 10 was "Pretty Thing" (#4, US R&B charts)

That's the thing. They stay mostly with the top 10 or top 40 and so much great music is missed. One station, part of one of the chains, promos itself as playing the greatest hits of all time. Well, I'd like to hear more of the not so greatest hits!

You gotta get off the mainstream radio stations. Find a good community supported radio station.
An example here locally is KFAI http://www.kfai.org/ They have at least one show, called Bop Street, that features the more obscure songs
http://www.kfai.org/bopstreet
another one called Rockin' in Rhythm <-- lots of doo-wop, answer songs, 50s rock and R&B,
http://www.kfai.org/rockininrhythm
you can stream all of their shows going back a few weeks and they really are on the radio here, not just internet

like KFAI, there are lots of other local community radio stations all across the US
look around a bit and you might find one in your area
just plug "community radio stations" and your state or city into your internet search engine and I'm sure you'll find at least one

There are still a few here in my area. Unfortunately, oneof them rarely plays any R&R. It's almost always beach music and doo wop -- the really draggy kind. While some of it is good, most of it is bland. You can only take so much of it. Two others only play oldies once a week. One on Saturday afternoon, and even that often gets pre-empted. The other on Sunday evenings, but only about 10% of their music is not the usual.

There were a couple other stations, but they got gobbled up by chains like Clear Channel.

Well, check out the links above. I know you won't be able to listen to them on your radio in your car but if you're online at home or work it's great internet radio programming.

I will. Though having to use a public computer, I'll only be able to give a short listen.
