For Marketplace, Wednesday, September 14, 2011

New York City announced its major bike sharing system today. Commentator David Frum gave his thoughts on the NLRB and green investment. Facebook is adding friend tiers. The United Auto Workers may have finally reached a deal with Ford, GM and Chrysler. And we heard about what would happen if Greece defaulted -- especially to the U.S. -- and about the role of developing nations like Brazil. And here are the songs we played:

  • Dream Operator - Talking HeadsBuy
  • You're My Excuse To Travel - BathsBuy
  • Ready to Start - Arcade FireBuy
  • Hood Pass Intact - Dam-FunkBuy
  • Witness - Richard BucknerBuy
  • Fixed Income - DJ ShadowBuy

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
