Congress can’t agree on a bill for disaster relief spending, and it could lead to a government shutdown. The NBA has canceled some preseason games as its lockout continues. Commentator Jon Wertheim talked about the concept of “Moneyball.” We went over the new changes coming to Facebook. Sears is marketing itself as a place for other retailers to set up shop. And we heard from Germans how they feel about the current eurozone problems. Here are the songs we played:

  • Narrow Sun – Fool’s GoldBuy
  • Basketball Beat – KoushikBuy
  • Sweet Child O Mine (Guns N Roses) – Vitamin String QuartetBuy
