From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday, May 2:
In Washington, the Labor Department reports on the employment situation for April.
The Commerce Department reports on March factory orders.
Will it rain? Shine? Snow? Hurricane? The Weather Channel debuted on this date in 1982. How did we get dressed without it?
And in 1936 Sergei Prokofiev’s symphony, “Peter and the Wolf,” premiered at the Moscow Children’s Musical Theater.
Sticking with our musical theme: it’s International Tuba Day.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
