Playlist: Music for Labor Day
Posted by Matt Berger
For Marketplace, Monday, September 6, 2010
It’s a holiday for the U.S., but a Tube strike in the U.K. was threatening to cause chaos. Back here in the States, President Obama announced new stimulus plans to help kick up the economy. Lots of people out there are still out of work, so we had a story about how the recession has changed job fairs. And we had these other stories: Xerox is trying to get recognized for its services beyond copying, food bloggers are popping up at more and more restaurants, scam artists are flourishing in the recession, and new non-alcoholic downers that will help get you off the caffeine buzz. Here’s the buzz-worthy music we played on the show:
- Listerine — QuasimojoBuy
- Working for vacation — Cibo MattoBuy
- Paparazzi — Lady GagaBuy
- Woman Driving, Man Sleeping — EelsBuy
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?
