For Marketplace, Wednesday, April 27, 2011

The Federal Reserve held its first ever press conference today led by Fed chief Ben Bernanke. Meanwhile, the media is scoring big with the royal wedding coverage in London this week. We also heard stories on how technology is making it easier for everyone to be a “Little Brother,” and about Sony’s delay in explaining a possible privacy breach. Commentator David Frum gave his take on National Labor Relations Board versus Boeing. And American political consultants find a calling in Egypt. And here are the songs we played:

  • Love Jones – J DillaBuy
  • It’s a Secret – Flying Lotus
  • Model Spy – CineramaBuy
  • Space – Like a Goodnight Kiss
  • Clumsy (Instrumental) – FergieBuy
  • Westworld – JapancakesBuy
