Rose Rock A couple of weeks ago, Rose Rock, comedian Chris Rock's mother, was in town and was to join us on the show. We weren't able to do that interview live as planned, but talked to her later that day, and on this edition of Charlotte Talks, we'll air that conversation. Mike Collins and Rose Rock talk about what it takes to raise over a dozen children, keep a family together, and why Chris Rock still looks to his mother to gauge his success.
