— The Triangle received some national exposure July 13 when the "CBS Early Show" came to Raleigh.

Hannah Storm and weatherman Dave Price broadcast the two-hour morning show live from Fayetteville Street, attracting scores of local residents.

The show covered the local arts and entertainment scene, North Carolina's agricultural tradition and the area's reputation as a hotbed of scientific research. Angus Barn Chef Walter Royal served up a steak salad during the broadcast.

The show also touched on issues such as Wake County's year-round school debate, North Carolina barbecue and NASCAR enthusiasm.

"Raleigh's so great. I mean, just this wonderful combination of Southern charm and a lot of brains," Storm said. "The Research Triangle is just amazing, the things they do."

Bruce Hornsby and Ricky Skaggs performed on the Early Show's Summer in the City Tour.

    The slideshow states that Mandolin Rain was Ricky Skaggs' first hit. Not even close. It wasn't a hit for Ricky Skaggs - it was a hit for Bruce Hornsby, who wrote it. It wasn't Bruce's first hit, either.

    What a nice event. Great music. Great weather. The only problem I saw was the opportunists that trampled on other people's space. That is, the dirtball advertisers that crowded out the cameras. Thank you stupid remaxi/johnny jump-up/chicken sandwich posters for blocking the views.
