For Marketplace, Friday, October 7, 2011

The nation added 103,000 jobs last month, but unemployment remains unchanged at 9.1 percent. There are a large number of service members expected to join the workforce in the next few years. Feds are threatening to shut down medical marijuana dispensaries throughout California. We took a look at Apple culture, Europe’s bailout fund, and had the weekly wrap with Leigh Gallagher from Fortune Magazine and Reuters blogger Felix Salmon. And Fox is turning 25. Here are the songs we played:

  • Helena Beat – Foster the PeopleBuy
  • Hold On – NicolayBuy
  • Let’s Call It Off – Peter Bjorn & JohnBuy
  • A Forest – The CureBuy
  • Swagger – Mocean WorkerBuy
  • To Go Home – M. WardBuy
