There is so much noise in my open space office I need to have a headset with
classical music in it to concentrate. I also often plug my scanner as I work very
cloe to the airport.

Also, in order to reduce noise, I now have an ANR headset. Best invention since sliced bread !

Are you allowed to listen to music at work ?

Without green tea and music, I couldn´t even do my job properly...  Big thumbs up

(And since I´m my own boss and work at home, nobody can complain about it.)

I need to have music on to think. I'm also self-employed (yeah!), which makes it all the more necessary since it gets REALLY quiet here. Sometimes I just leave a rock station on the radio, though I'm going to hunt down a jazz station on web radio when I can figure out how to configure the %*@&! sound card in this computer I built a couple weeks ago (can't find a linux driver that works--argh).

Klaus, what kind of tea are you drinking? I gotta lay off the Dr. Pepper.

pretty much have it on non stop. 96.3 WQXR "the classical station of the new york times"

sometimes i crank it up pretty loudly, since my neighbors enjoy it too.

but i'm on a floor with cool people. downstairs one of the partners hates the smell of microwave popcorn he had the microwave removed from the kitchen on that floor.

I´ve found that green tea is very mch compatible with any kind of work that requires creativity and concentration. I can drink it all day and never get a problem (as I would if I drank even half the amount in coffee!).

My favourite kinds of tea at the moment:
- a very high-quality jasmin tea
- a good earl grey (also green)
- a fine "gunpowder" variant ("temple of heaven")
And a few others..

All without chemical flavouring. But the sort or blend of tea is actually not as important as the quality. The cheap supermarket stuff is a real turn-off, but a good tea shop can offer you vastly superior quality.

Many people think it´s an abomination, but I´ve found that milk makes green tea even more pleasant and supports the flavour quite well, but it´s certainly a matter of taste.  Wink/being sarcastic


At this moment, my favourite internet radio stations are these:
Radio Paradise - eclectic online rock radio
Very diverse mix, pleasant and interesting.

Cinemascape
Movie soundtracks.

The Green Lounge
Jazz / Swing / Blues.

Modern Jazz

Mostly Classical
Classical music plus the occasional soundtrack or other related kinds.

Have fun!  Big thumbs up

I need music/radio to get anything done. Silence, or listening to my co-workers bitch just doesn't work. I spend my mornings listening to Howard Stern, then the Rock they play afterwards, and in the afternoon, I listen to Jim Rome and that takes me up until its time to go home.

Hello all,

I do listen to music when at work. When I work on campus for OIT I listen to iTunes. Pretty much EuroDance. When home, studying I like to listen anything from classical music to Neil Damond.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

During summer I work as an EMT for Rural/Metro. Being in NJ, I listen to radios, 100.3, 106.7, 95.6 (I believe that is right freq. for Phily area) and 101.1 for Phily area. And when volunteering, it is Z100 again. You would not believe it, but even patients like to listen to music, if they are not dying....  Smile/happy/getting dizzy.

Also, sometimes I listen to www.liveatc.net -> NY APP/DEP

Well, that is it folks.

Cheers,
Andrej

I wish we could listen to music instead of whinging old customers. I work in a call centre so its impossible to listen to music (apart from crap hold music which sounds like porn music).

All the time... But it's got to be trance, techno, instrumental or something without words (including crap hold music which sounds like porn music!). Anything with words makes me sing along and then I end up typing what I'm singing...

If I remember to charge up my MP3 player, then yes (that reminds me, I need to do that). At first, I brought it so to try to drown out the hip hop music that everyone else in the warehouse would listen to on the boombox we used to have (someone pulled the cord on that, literally). On the one day a week that I'd have the place to myself for a few hours, I'd change the station on the boombox. I don't listen to my MP3 player as much now because I got tired of having my headphone wires getting snagged on stuff in the warehouse.

I listen to music FOR work, and when we're not ploughing through thousands of appalling demos by deluded nitwits, on the office hifi at the moment it's King's X (best of), Aaliyah (I Care 4 U), Unkle (Never Never Land), Avril Lavigne (Under My Skin), Our Lady Peace (Spiritual Machines), Claudine Longet (Colours), Fiona Apple (Tidal and When The Pawn), John Martyn (One World), Mansun (Kleptomania and Little Kix), Mark Kozelek (What's Next To The Moon) - that's a selection from the pile on my desk. The Unkle album is phenomenal, the new version of John Martyn's masterpiece One World is great cos it's got a tonne of live material and outtakes, Avril's latest is the pop album of the year, although Fiona Apple must be pretty pissed off about it, she does stroppy waif better than anyone.

Kaz: yeah yeah, but the live experience is so much better than their records, the show made me go out and buy everything they've done but I never play it cos it's so underwhelming compared to their gigs. See also: Coldplay.

Mostly its AC/DC or the Mexican AM station. We've recently discovered that my new grill cook, Oscar, can sing almost any Journey song note perfect. Elvis is also a growing trend there too.

7.5 G of MP3s on my work laptop, MS Media Player, and a small set of Sony headphones, allows me to get some privacy in the office.


By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
