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
