For Marketplace, Friday, November 11, 2011

On today's show, we looked at how the seeds of the eurozone debt crisis were sown in the formation of the European Union half a century ago, and at the different regions of Italy and how they're surviving. Mixed martial arts, or MMA, has overtaken boxing as America's favorite contact sport. The labor movement is trying to join forces with Occupy Wall Street, and gain recognition. And here are the songs we played:

  • Raspberry Beret (Extended) - PrinceBuy
  • Mash - J Dilla
  • Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll - Ian DuryBuy
  • Rock & Folk - Marc GrauBuy

“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
