Over the weekend, the Occupy Wall Street protestors gained more mainstream support, and incidents flared up in other cities around the country. Student loan debt has become one of the major issues of those gathering. There could be a whole lot more pistachios across the globe very soon. And news from Florida that not only are they moving up the date of their presidential primary, but they are also banning smoking in prisons.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • The Ballad of Speck and Pebble – Delicate SteveBuy
  • Modern Man – Arcade FireBuy
  • Still Sound – Toro Y MoiBuy
  • Confetti – Cold CaveBuy
  • Oh, Naoko – Sun AirwayBuy
