Hi, it is Jayne Ann Bugda from the Producers Pod!   

Music is well said to be the speech of angels. ~Thomas Carlyle, “The Opera” from the Quote Garden

     I had the wonderful opportunity to see the Howard Gospel Choir of Howard University on Friday evening at the FM Kirby Center.  The Choir presented a beautiful, inspiring, and uplifting evening of song and praise.  If you have the opportunity to see them perform I highly recommend it. This was the choir’s second visit to our area.  I hope they return again! Great show!

Enjoy your Leap Year Day!

CBS Sunday Morning:

   COVER STORY:  Full disclosure – The complicated truth about secret settlements
In the wake of widespread revelations about sexual harassment that have brought down dozens of powerful men (including Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein), the role of non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, has come under heavy scrutiny. Critics say these deals, where both parties agree to keep quiet about a harassment allegation in exchange for money, can be used to protect serial offenders. Former news anchor Gretchen Carlson and her Fox News colleague Julie Roginsky talk with Faith Salie about Lift Our Voices, an organization they helped found that advocates for laws banning the use of confidentiality agreements in sexual harassment settlements. Salie also talks with University of Pennsylvania Law School professor David Hoffman and attorney Debra Katz about the harm NDAs can do.

 Music: Mandy Moore
Mandy Moore was a certified teen pop star, and a regular presence on MTV, before stretching into acting. Just a few years ago, she had been so shaken by a divorce and lack of acting work she considered leaving Hollywood. But that was before landing a starring role in a show that exceeded all expectations, the TV hit “This Is Us.” Moore talked with correspondent Luke Burbank about a young girl’s music dreams, and a woman realizing her dreams with her new album, “Silver Landings,” a collaboration with her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith.

Since 1982, Vanna White has demonstrated that no one reveals letters better than her. Correspondent Mo Rocca profiles the “Wheel of Fortune” hostess, and also speaks with Pat Sajak about their long partnership.
