On Friday’s Houston Matters: When will we reach herd immunity in Greater Houston, across the country, and around the world? Dr. Paul Klotman, president and CEO of Baylor College of Medicine weighs in.

Also this hour: We conclude our weeklong reflection on the 12 months since the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Greater Houston by remembering some of those we’ve lost to the virus. And a Clear Lake couple talks about the website they created to memorialize COVID-19 victims across the nation.

Then we discuss The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.

And Justin Furstenfeld, the lead singer of the band Blue October, which began in Houston, talks about his music and returning to the stage. He kicks off an outdoor, socially-distanced, CDC compliant solo tour of Texas with two shows tonight and Saturday at White Oak Music Hall.
