Do you allow one (or more) radio(s) to play in the service area of your shop? Take a second and share your policy opinion with a vote!

I do let them play the radio in the shop area that they work in. I own the volume control and if I hear anything bad I can tell them to turn it off.
Have a great day and may the Lord bless you.

Yes, on a station I do not care for, but the moneymakers like it...

As long as the volume is controlled... otherwise it goes off

We allow a radio played on a country station. Owners preference. I toured the Jasper plants last year. They play a different station each day. The work force determs the stations and they rotate for all to enjoy. Alan

Techs are free to listen to whatever they want, and they choose nothing.

I sometimes stream Sirius satellite in my office (I have a mute button on my keyboard, that I've gotten really quick at hitting :wink: ).

Yes, music is important, soothes the savage beast and keeps the revenue generators happy. But only one mutually accepted channel.

I'm still not playing my personal favorite radio station because they've been playing HOLIDAY songs since before Thanksgiving.

I like the "Kings of Swing" no doubt. The oldies i'm talking about are the 60's, 70's and 80's.

I have internet radio playing through my laptop into a Dewalt rugged radio/battery charger. No static. A million stations to choose from and always on. Mmmmmmmmm, the internet.

I usually choose an eclectic station that plays everything.
