ROAD WARRIORS: Songs to travel by

Daryl Paranada Jul 6, 2010

Marketplace’s new “Road Warrior” series explores what business travelers listen to out in the field. Whether they’re on the road, stuck in an airport or killing time at a hotel, something’s got to be on to help them pound the pavement.

Today we kick off our series with Pandora CEO Tim Westergren, who shares his personal playlist for business travelers. And tomorrow, we’ll launch our new section called “Marketplace Music,” where we will feature more themed playlists and the music from our radio shows.

In addition to playlists from our radio series, we want to know what music you listen to on your business travels. Send us your playlist, tell us why you chose the songs, and you could be featured on our site.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
