Average Joes

Average Joes It's the July installment of our Average Joes Panel. We're joined by two men and two women; two are independents, one a Republican and the other a Democrat who doesn't like the "liberal" label; they're an assistant superintendent, a history teacher, an IT student and the manager of a Christian publication. Join these four Charlotte Talks listeners to discuss the topics they care about, like education, the election, the environment, living in Charlotte and more!

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. Contact the show: 704-926-9323, 800-603-9323, charlottetalks@wfae.org or comment at Charlotte Bogs.
