For Marketplace, Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Foreclosures are being halted all over the country — John Dimsdale took a closer look, and Kai spoke to housing expert Nic Retsinas on what’s to come. Payday loans can leave borrowers in a cycle of debt, but one bank in Alabama is trying out a new type of loan. Amy Scott reported on how your doctor may be able to help you keep your prescription costs down. Libraries are jumping onto the e-book train, but large e-reader providers Amazon and Apple aren’t helping out. The Chevy Volt faces a PR problem even before it hits the market — critics are claiming it’s not an electric vehicle, but a hybrid. And Kai read your letters. Here are the songs we played:

  • Cigarettes Will Kill You – Ben Lee
  • Electric Worms – Beastie BoysBuy
  • Electric Eel/Electric Vibe – The Olivia Tremor ControlBuy
  • Sunshine and Clouds (And Everything Proud) – Clap Your Hands Say YeahBuy
  • Say My Name – The CutsBuy
