Turkey is holding elections this Sunday, and it's looking like the ruling party will win easily. It's been three months since the Japan quake and tsunami; Tess spoke with David Weinstein about the country's recovery. Kai reported from China, about his visit with a family there. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is upset with how NATO is handling the situation in Libya. Yoga-wear maker Lululemon is posting big profits. And advertisers set their aim on a new trend: biking. And here are the songs we played:

  • Northside Diehard - MatlockBuy
  • Paper Planes (DFA remix) - M.I.A.Buy
  • Elevator Headphone - JapancakesBuy
  • China, My China - Brian EnoBuy
  • Big in Japan - AlphavilleBuy
