Final Note

The Obama push?

Kai Ryssdal Jan 27, 2012

This final note today. Ending where we started, with President Obama. Last Thursday he was in New York for a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater — you might have heard about this — and sang a line from Al Green’s 1972 hit, “Let’s Stay Together.”

I don’t know how much money he raised, but he did fine by Al Green. Sales of the single were up almost 500 percent this week. That’s according to Billboard magazine.

Here you go.
