Playlist: Beethoven and Gaga
Submitted by Mike Burns
Truth is, when traveling on business I prefer listening to Marketplace Money podcasts, and I also listen to Planet Money from NPR on the airplane.
At the hotel I use my iPod Shuffle, which is loaded with Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Simon and Garfunkle, Chicago Symphony - Beethoven's 9th, Meat Loaf, and a few others. I don't like to watch TV in the hotel - makes it seem lonelier -- so I set up Beethoven's 9th Symphony and turn the lights down. For the next two hours it's just me and the symphony.
