do youse listen to the radio at work?
you work in a library eh?
we've got 6music on most of the time, unless the big boss comes down then we get radio 2.
it's pretty dire in the afternoon though. is there anything better?
And it's gone down well.
Occasionally we'll listen to absolute but they just play the same songs in a different order every day
the music is fine for the office but the DJs have started doing my head in.
In a former job we used to, but we'd occasionally get calls from some firm which you have to buy licences from to play music in 'public' so the boss got all paranoid and put a stop to it. It was usually Radio 1 or a local radio station which I'd occasionally email requests to.
Previously hadn't been, but a load of free desks have been rented to another organisation who very much favour playing music. We're currently at no music but I don't think the war is over.
we were told to turn it off by one of the managers who told us it was distracting us from our work.
The same manager vetoed the idea of a dress down day because if we weren't dressed for work we'd be distracted and not get anything done.
haha! can't imagine working for someone like that, unlucky
If you doubt me, load up Alta Vista and search for a company called Google. They experimented with not wearing suits. Sad story.
2 or 6
Whoever gets in first
so you just sit in silence?
I listen to music. But there's no radio.
don't you need to talk to other people?
6Music usually (sometimes if it is just me and Jezza we will listen to Kisstory(although it's shit) and the cricket and yesterday we listened to a couple of races at Cheltenham) sometimes an Absolute with a decade suffix.
All of us really.
when I got a job where we the radio wasn't on and I no longer had to listen to Radio 2 all day.
