For Marketplace Money, Friday, May 6, 2011

The latest unemployment numbers were released today, and showed the economy may have some momentum behind it. More companies may start sending their American employees overseas and some are spending extra money to help them and their families make the adjustment of living and working in a new country. On the flip side, the class of 2011 are still feeling leery about job prospects after seeing alums suffer through the Great Recession.

Hard to believe anyone could forget where all their money is, but we learned some tips on how you can check if you have a dormant bank account you’ve forgotten or some utility deposit check you have cashed yet.

We also got tips on where to find travel deals for the upcoming summer travel season. And here are the songs we played:

  • Start the Commotion – The WiseguysBuy
  • Theme to Parked Cars – LowfishBuy
  • Pick up the Pieces – Average White BandBuy
  • Theme from “Knight Rider” – Stu PhillipsBuy
  • She’s a Bad Mama Jama – Carl CarltonBuy
  • Arco Arena – CakeBuy
