Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
When Rockville resident John Lingan learned that country music legend Patsy Cline lived most of her life in Winchester, Va., only an hour and a half from his home, he set off for the Shenandoah Valley town. What he found inspired his new book, “Homeplace: A Southern Town, a Country Legend, and the Last Days of a Mountaintop Honky-Tonk.”
Kojo sits down with Lingan to explore the evolution of Winchester and how its changes and conflicts reflect popular questions about the mid-Atlantic as a whole. Can progress and tradition exist side by side? Where does the North become the South, and urban become rural? And what happens to the people stuck in-between? Join us for a conversation on country music and Washington’s urban and rural identity.

No one would have thought that Highland Ridge, Virginia was the center of anything. Then Jim McCoy’s honky-tonk came along.
