For Marketplace, Thursday, January 13, 2011

Today’s show focused on our special report in cooperation with public television’s SoCal Connected, following the story of one Spanish bungalow in Los Angeles that fell into foreclosure. [Check out our special coverage here](). We also had stories about the rise in food prices, what factors into inflation, and an online retailer that’s going brick-and-mortar. Here are the songs we played:

  • Loaded – Primal ScreamBuy
  • Black Sands – BonoboBuy
