For Marketplace Morning Report, Tues., Nov. 1, 2011

At least half a dozen ruling party members in Greece have called on Prime Minister George Papandreou to resign. That's after the head of state dropped a bombshell in Athens late yesterday, asking his country to vote on an economic rescue package and all the cuts that go along with it. Chris Matthews talks about his new book on Jack Kennedy, out today. Coca-Cola sure loves polar bears, and Nieman Marcus will start accepting major credit cards.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Untrust Us - Crystal CastlesBuy
  • Smoke - Medeski, Martin and WoodBuy
  • Gotta Be Something - D-TensionBuy
  • Video Game - R3 ProductionsBuy
  • Got Your Money (instrumental) - Ol' Dirty BastardBuy

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
