Playlist: Double-dip doo-wop
Posted by Millie Jefferson
For Marketplace, Friday, July 30, 2010
“We have a very distorted economy,” former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan said in a Sunday interview on NBC’s Meet the Press. Banks and corporations are in excellent shape. Small businesses and the working class? Not so much.
Also on the show: President Barack Obama gives a speech in Atlanta to disabled veterans about troop withdrawals; The price of pork skyrockets, which means you’re paying more for your next BLT; An in-depth look at the booming business of online comment moderation; Another soundtrack in our music series: Road Warriors. And these are the songs we played on the show:
- Touch Too Much (Ewan Pearson Remix) – Hot Chip Buy
- Travelin’ Alone – Nickodemus & Zeb Remix (Billy Holiday Remixed & Reimagined) Buy
- Right Hand High – Kid Sister Buy
- Call Me – Blondie Buy
- Big Lost – Diplo Buy
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
