Playlist: New music for the 1st
Posted by Daryl Paranada
For Marketplace, Wednesday, September 1, 2010
On today’s show we explore the elusive price tag of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Plus, we see how location has gone mass market and look into why gold is such an attractive investment. The other stories we covered: Campaign ad spending could reach $4.2 billion, the issues with “fracking” and water contamination, and the HUD’s new First Look program. We also had a commentary from David Frum, who says that fresh solutions are needed to get the economy moving, but the federal government is stuck in its old assumptions. And these are the songs we played:
- Venus As A Boy — BjorkBuy
- Inflation — Whitest Boy AliveBuy
- Keep A Secret — Whitest Boy AliveBuy
- Ain’t It Fun — Dead BoysBuy
- 1517 — The Whitest Boy Alive
- B is for my name — Beastie BoysBuy
