For Marketplace, Friday, October 21, 2011

Scotland’s ruling political party is advocating that the country break away from the United Kingdom. Rupert Murdoch is facing a revolt at today’s News Corp. shareholder meeting. The EPA will be regulating “fracking.” The White House released regulations yesterday that aim to fundamentally change how doctors and hospitals get paid. And we heard a satire piece from Andy Borowitz — a letter to Goldman Sachs shareholders. And here are the songs we played:

  • When You Go Down – Gross Relations
  • A Man’s A Man For A’ That – Sheena WellingtonBuy
  • Swear – Inc.Buy
  • Got Your Back (ft. Keri Hilson) – T.I.Buy
  • Science vs. Romance – Rilo KileyBuy
