We literally have a show hole on Tuesday nights and have decided to fill it with an impromptu show called Tech Talk Tuesday. The show will air LIVE on August 30th and September 13th. Three male technologists have been selected for the first show and three female technologists will be featured in the second show.
Before we introduce you to the first group of Charlotte-based technologists, let’s say you are interested in getting On Air with Charlotte Community Radio and you so happen to have an interest in technology talks such as the ones we are about to embark on. Well, how about you let us know you are out there and let’s see if we can get you in the driver’s seat, behind the mic as a host that is, for our third Tech Talk Tuesday.
Now, let’s meet our first group of guests who we believe will have a lot to say about our first topic, Frame The Future.
