We tackle the biggest political news of the week, from the reprimand of a D.C. Councilmember to Governor Larry Hogan calling the Maryland General Assembly "the most pro-criminal group of legislators" he's ever seen.
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.
