Dave Hoekstra talks with a huge panel of people passionate about the blues as he welcomes the Chicago Blues All-Stars for some live music.  Frontman Freddie Dixon talks about the band, which traces its roots back to his father, legendary bassist and songwriter Willie Dixon, and the problem of Chicago’s apparent unwillingness to spend money to honor its blues legacy.  Joe Morganfield talks about his father, the great Muddy Waters; Bob Lassandrello of Motor Row Brewing Co. is serving up brews and music in the shadow of Chess Records, and more.
