The sound wave says, "From the Frank Stanton Studios in Los Angeles, this is Marketplace". The program is on public radio, which is a marketplace of ideas.

Since "buying into" this panorama as a "marketplace" requires viewer conceptualization, perhaps the coordinates of the event should be yours. You are the marketplace.
