Part One: Carolina Chocolate Drops
Meet and hear the story of a local group who went from wanting to learn more about their chosen brand of music to becoming touring stars in their industry. The Carolina Chocolate Drops will join us and we’ll hear music from their new CD, and talk about how the group met each other through their mutual love of banjo music and about how their group has exploded in the music industry.

Part 2: Charlotte Fire Station 2
The oldest standing fire station in Charlotte sits almost unnoticed on South Blvd. just outstide of uptown. A battle over its survival is becoming an example of the city’s struggle between preservation and progress. We’ll learn about the people hoping to save the station from the wrecking.
