(CNN) – It's a new week and a new CNN Radio News Day. Here's what we have for you on today's show:

  • On the front lines of Syria

News Day takes you to the heart of the fighting as host Tommy Andres debriefs CNN's Frederik Pleitgen in Damascus. Pleitgen is just back from having spent time on the front lines with pro-Assad soldiers where he gained a unique and rare perspective.

  • Pandora on your radio dial?

Internet radio giant Pandora has bought an honest-to-goodness terrestrial radio station in North Dakota. What's behind the move? CNN's Jonathan Binder explains.

  • Recycling the Big Apple's rotten cores

Rule factory cum Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg wants to make mandatory a program that would force New Yorkers  to recycle their food waste. We sent  CNN's Steve Kastenbaum on a stinky journey to find out how all that rotting food is made useful again (you're welcome Steve).
