Money in the Morning

It sounds like Stormy Weather for a few moments.  As I think of a cabaret, a sequined dress, and a sultry voice, the money talk seems unwelcome.  The business guy near the front, talking shop, too loudly, and ruining it for the rest of us.  But I signed up to hear about the market.  I'm listening to NPR afterall.  Not exactly cabaret material. 

I searched for the clip to hear it again.  I googled to see if others found this music an odd match.  Turns out, I can't even find the show.  I thought it was Money Watch, but then I thought it was Marketplace.  Marketplace pod casts revealed what I thought a serious finance program would be - the breaking newsline series of beeps followed by an earnest recap of the exchange yesterday.

So in this invented portion of the Morning Edition that apparently lives in my dreams, the Stormy Weather musical interlude projects a pessimistic view of the market in a time where we could use a little more of this:

I don't know if it's more appropriate than headline beeps, but it certainly fulfills my need for the world to be punny.

Any suggestions for NPR's music selection?  Or are you listening to Top 40 like most of our peers?
