0800 It's called "showrooming". And more and more shoppers are doing it. Doug Stephens knows how it works...and why it's great for consumers and NOT so great for many retailers. Doug's the president of Retail Prophet, a retail business consulting company...and he was Mary's guest.

0830 The holiday season has truly begun...but it wouldn't BE the holidays without holiday MUSIC. And whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza...or just the official arrival of winter...there's something comforting about that seasonal soundtrack. Mary was joined by three musicians to talk about the good (and occasional bad) of holiday tunes. Emilie-Claire Barlow released her jazz-themed Winter Wonderland CD a few years ago. Ian Thomas is one quarter of Lunch At Allen's---and that quartet has just issued its first seasonal album---it's called Zuzu's Petals.
And Liam Titcomb has a couple of Christmas singles to his name...including his brand new tune Generosity.
