Lunchtime Poll: Radio at Work

People can be incredibly invested in which channel they want or don’t want to listen to. It baffles me, until I have to listen to Dutch country crooners with an Amsterdam accent.

Do you have a workplace with a shared radio or do you work in (blessed) silence? Are you okay with pretty much every channel or do you have radio channel standards?

Freckle can't decide between writing fact or fiction, so she does both, on a very regular basis, and sometimes even for money.

I work from home so can listen to whatever the hell I want but when I tried working for another person, she would put on freaking rush limbaugh and then used the fact I’d wear head phones at those times as a sign I was “disrespectful of office hierarchy.” I didn’t comment on her choices, just… put on headphones and listened to something else so I wouldn’t be distracted by my outrage.

Very lucky to work in a private office. (Tiny HR perk) So while we all typically work in blessed silence, I sometimes switch on Pandora or a chilled out playlist on a relaxed day. Boss listens to….electronica/indie, I like my twee indie mixed with Johnny Cash and the White Stripes for variety. My first week here I thought I was alone on a Saturday and yelled at my misbehaving radio, “No! Only Motown today!” And that’s how I really revealed my personality to the office when everyone came around the corner.
