We take a bit of a spring break and give a second listen to some of our favorites stories of recent months. We'll talk with longtime Washington residents about the city during the era of segregation, and we'll visit the high-tech "cold room" at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. We'll also meet a man who's pursuing a comedic career even as his eyesight fades, and play some tunes with the reigning world champion of old-time piano playing.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks]
