For Marketplace, Thursday, October 27, 2011

European leaders have finally reached an agreement on how to handle Greek debt. Here in the U.S., GDP is up. Volkswagen is reporting good numbers too. The Occupy Wall Street protests will soon need to decide what to do with its donations. A Los Angeles councilman is trying to revise the city’s banking policy. A business owner in Alabama finds himself caught in the immigration debate. And a ranch in Iowa explores both meanings of sustainability. Here are the songs we played:

  • Let’s Call It Off – Peter Bjorn and JohnBuy
  • Cover Your Tracks – Young GalaxyBuy
  • Maria Chuchena – Calexico
  • Shooting Holes – Twin ShadowBuy
  • Even The Good Wood Gone – Why?Buy
