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.
