For Marketplace Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Industrial marijuana farming meets financial challenges in our story about Pot Banks. Good opportunity to play Serge Gainsbourg’s “Cannabis.” This is off the soundtrack from the 1970 movie “Cannabis” shot in New York. “Carry the Zero” from Built to Spill follows our story about the bond market. We hear “Movement” by the Shanghai Restoration Project after our interview from the World Expo in Shanghai. Also on the show — “Hands” by one of my favorite bands Four Tet. And Robert Pollard’s “Subspace Biographies.” *Photo: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images*
