The drama in Europe continues as the Greek government teeters on the brink. The protests of Occupy Oakland heat up and turn violent, after the city’s port was shut down early this morning. Food stamps could be on the chopping block with budget cuts in Washington. Groupon goes public, and drug maker GlaxoSmithKline will dish out a $3 billion settlement, in part for Medicaid fraud.

And here are the songs we played today:
