For this very special, one-hour edition of Talkin' Music, we bring you a roundtable discussion on the blues. 

What is it? Where did it come from? What it does even sound like? And perhaps most importantly, how does it make us feel? 

We pulled together a group of four KVNF DJs to answer those questions in more. Join Cynthia & Todd, DJ Hurricane and Father Elk as we dig into the joys, the sorrows, and even the inherent problems associated with this most emblematic of American musical forms, the "blues."
