For Marketplace, Monday, October 24, 2011

Kai reported from Athens, Ga., on today’s show, reflecting on how the debt crisis in the other Athens in Greece might affect the U.S. We heard about middle class families in the Athens of Greece and the U.S., and how the debt troubles might mirror a classic Greek tragedy.

Meanwhile, President Obama has broadened the Home Affordable Refinance Program to help homeowners, and Groupon readies its IPO. And here are the songs we played:

  • The Wig He Made Her Wear – Drive-By TruckersBuy
  • Love Tractor – Widespread PanicBuy
  • Our Own Dream – Keep Shelly in Athens
  • Vineyard’s Sway – Burgundy Grapes
  • Funky Vergina – Mode Plagal
