In our new office set up, where there’s just a dozen or so of us on two banks of desks in a massive room, my team now has a digital radio in our section and we set it up according to what we fancy. Currently on Radio X. Lots of bollocks, but enough nostalgic shit for me to appreciate.


#9

Spotify + headphones. Used to work in a call centre when I was a teenager that had local radio on constantly, still haunted by some of the advert jingles.


#10

Nothing.

Cheers.


#11

No communal music

Headphones and mp3 player or spotify.


#12

Other: Personal music on your headphones only.

It’s weird, the guy who’s my new manager sort of (as in he runs the department I am working within but I am still working for the UK technically) has a little radio on his desk and plays some really MOR station all day on a low but annoying volume.

He is a great guy and also head of IT stuff so I’m surprised he even uses a little radio instead of his computer.

The thing is on a Monday or Tuesday I sit at a desk next to him and it drives me a bit potty but I can’t really say anything as I’m really only a transient worker and I CAN sit in a different place with no one to talk to or work from home…


#13

Why the fuck are you ever in the office then


#14

what’s radio X? Did a stint at a place where they had Radio 6 on fairly loudly all day long, absolutely hellish.


#15

New branded XFM


#16

think that must be one of the least hellish of the widely available options


#17


#18

Bunch of fucking Philistines in this place, honestly.


#19

Before the office reorganised and the whole company was in one space, the communal radio was generally set to Radio 6, and it was shit - you soon realise how small the playlist on the daytime shows are, you’d hear the same songs ten times a day.

Edit, this was meant to be a reply to @rich-t

i thought it was solid, real solid.
