Dee Perry sits down with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, a four-person string band making a stop at Cain Park in Cleveland Heights on their summer tour. Plus, author Ed Falco joins us by phone to tell us about his latest production, and comedian Kevin Pollak gives us a taste of his humor just in time for his Hilarities performance in Cleveland.

Additional Information

Author and playwright Ed Falco calls in to preview the June 13 premiere of his latest comedy, Possum Dreams.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops are headed to Cain Park in Cleveland Heights, and Hubby Jenkins and Rhiannon Giddens, two of the band’s founders, join us in the studio to tell us about the group.
