Today’s show reflected on the recent news that the recession reportedly ended in June 2009 with a story by Mitchell Hartman on when we might actually begin to feel that effect. Commentator Justin Fox says he believes people should take advantage of the “uncertainty” that’s still in the air. We also had stories about the pros and cons of genetically altered fish, how the U.K. budget cuts might affect the green countryside and its hedgerows, and on the upcoming TV season. Here’s what we played:

  • Restrain – PocoBuy
  • My Piano (DJ-Kicks) – Hot ChipBuy
  • Give – Sackcloth Fashion
  • Charlane’s Allure – Tom DudaBuy
