DO we really have to have loud music playing in every establishment that we go into?

Even in the doctor's waiting room and in the dentist's surgery itself – albeit less noisy in these places – but elsewhere in supermarkets, petrol stations, garages, shops and the like we have this continuous ear piercing nonsensical drivel blasting in our ears.

Workmen too, always seem to have a little grotty radio playing music continuously wherever they do their jobs.

I wonder what next – more of this drivel they call music playing from speakers in our streets?
