For Marketplace, Friday, June 10, 2011

Turkey is holding elections this Sunday, and it’s looking like the ruling party will win easily. It’s been three months since the Japan quake and tsunami; Tess spoke with David Weinstein about the country’s recovery. Kai reported from China, about his visit with a family there. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is upset with how NATO is handling the situation in Libya. Yoga-wear maker Lululemon is posting big profits. And advertisers set their aim on a new trend: biking. And here are the songs we played:

  • Northside Diehard – MatlockBuy
  • Paper Planes (DFA remix) – M.I.A.Buy
  • Elevator Headphone – JapancakesBuy
  • China, My China – Brian EnoBuy
  • Big in Japan – AlphavilleBuy
  • Come Close – NicolayBuy
