For Marketplace, Friday, Sept. 10, 2010

Jonathan Franzen stops by to talk to Kai about his new highly-anticipated novel, “Freedom.” Kai also dissects President Obama’s press conference today, his first since May. Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out, a big fashion spectacle conceived by *Vogue* editor Anna Wintour in hopes of boosting clothing retail sales, which haven’t been helped by the shaky economy. That economy is also affecting the world of country music — Jeremy Hobson heads to Nashville to investigate what kind of songs people want to listen to in tough economic times. As for our songs, here’s the list:

  • Ecstasy – Rusted RootBuy
  • Vogue – MadonnaBuy
  • Breakdown – Handsome Boy Modeling SchoolBuy
  • Red Dress – Staff Mahan

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re here for you.
