For Marketplace, Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Some cigar shops are beginning to cater to the roll-your-own cigarettes customers, but federal regulators are warning that they’re still under normal cigarette restrictions. Tyson plans to sell more dark meat to Americans. New federal fuel economy labels will show how much fuel or electricity it takes to drive 100 miles. The big banks are allowing banking over smartphones. Russian Internet search company Yandex looks to compete with Google. Commentator David Frum talked about why the Greek debt crisis should worry the U.S. And in light of the Thiel Foundation giving 24 young people $100,000 to start a business instead of go to college, Marketplace’s Amy Scott and Steve Henn debated the value of a college education. And here are the songs we played:

  • Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh – Say HiBuy
  • Simply Put – Georgia Anne MuldrowBuy
  • Dirty Blonde – The Bad PlusBuy
  • Whatcha Say – Jason DeruloBuy
  • Almost A Year Since – OddiseeBuy
