Program Notes

 

I look forward each week to CBS Saturday Morning. The show begins with the day's headlines, but then turns to a series of repeated segments; for example, each week they invite a different chef as guest: the chef cooks for the anchors and the camera crew, and they always relate interesting stories about their lives and work, and about how they got where they are. Throughout the segment, the anchors enjoy the food—and at the end they ask the chef to sign a white dinner plate; the set includes display cases filled with signed dinner plates.

 

In another segment, a band or musician is featured. Throughout the broadcast, they perform three to five songs. Today, the featured band was a trio of sisters from Portland: Joseph. The name of the group comes from a town in eastern Oregon where their grandfather grew up. This morning was the first time for me to hear their music. The songs were all lovely.

 

Here is a link to Joseph performing "White Flag" on CBS Saturday Morning:
