Playlist: A week of closure
Posted by Matt Berger
For Marketplace, July 16, 2010
It was a week of endings for many of the stories we cover regularly at Marketplace. BP stopped the flow of oil from its broken well in the Gulf of Mexico, the SEC settled with Goldman Sachs over shady mortgage dealings, the Senate put the final stamp of approval on a wide-reaching financial reform bill, and Steve Jobs finally offered a mea culpa to iPhone 4 owners, some of whom have been complaining about spotty reception. As a soundtrack to this week of closure, we chose the following songs for today’s show:
- I’m Gone – Oddisee Buy
- R U Listening? – Illa J Buy
- I’m Branded – Los Straitjackets Listen
- Give – Sackcloth Fashion Buy
- Coffee at Changos – James Hardway Buy
