Playlist: Beethoven and Gaga

Omaha, Ne.

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.
