This week's featured Road Warrior is Alexandra Franzen, a creative resume designer and copywriter from the St. Paul/Minneapolis area. Franzen chose the song "Right Hand High" by Kid Sister, as her top song pick. "it's hard to listen to it without getting really energized," she notes. That helps when you're on the road as much as she is. Franzen's extended playlist includes a mix of mellow and up-tempo songs. They are:

  • Right Hand Hi - Kid Sister Buy
  • My Life is in Storage - Frank Black Listen
  • Left Bank - AIRBuy
  • Blue Angel - Antony & the Johnsons Buy
  • I Left My Wallet in El Segundo - A Tribe Called Quest Buy
  • Robot Rock - Daft Punk Buy
  • Can't Keep It In - Cat Stevens Buy

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
