Melissa Block talks to Michele Norris about Melissa's two weeks at NPR West.

MICHELE NORRIS, host:

And this week and next, while I'm here in Washington as usual, Melissa, you're out there in Los Angeles at NPR West, actually in the Los Angeles area and we're hosting the program from both coasts. And Melissa, what do you plan to bring for us from out there?

MELISSA BLOCK, host:

Well, there are a couple stories from the next state up the coast where, again, one of them is a story about a chain of neighborhood grocery stores in Portland called New Seasons Markets. People there, Michele, absolutely swear by these stores. They're locally owned with lots of locally grown stuff.

NORRIS: So, that's from Oregon, what are you going to bring us from California?

BLOCK: Well, I'm going to talk to one of the most respected cinematographers out here, Roger Deakins. He's shot a lot of movies for the Coen Brothers. And right outside our hotel, Michele, they are shooting a movie now, a comedy starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. And I really want to see what that's about. I saw Paul Rudd out there this morning. So, if he's listening, Paul Rudd, I want to talk to you.

NORRIS: Oh, I hope he is listening.

(Soundbite of laughter)

NORRIS: Good luck with that, Melissa. There's some things to look forward to.
