We head out on the Nocturnal Journey to St. Louis, MO and the National Blues Museum, where Dave Hoekstra talks with executive director Dion Brown.  Brown explains the museum’s mission in spotlighting the blues and creating a “brand” to reach various communities, how the museum landed in St. Louis and the city’s geographic spot at the crossroads of the blues, his past work with BB King’s museum in Mississippi, and more.

Dave has more from his visit to the National Blues Museum at his website.
