Well, it seems to have been switched to Radio 2 recently, but as far  
as I can tell, it plays much the same awful crap as every other  
payola radio station, complete with inane presenters, phone-ins with  
nutters calling, and adverts every fifteen minutes. It's certainly  
not the Radio 2 with a varied and interesting playlist that I  
remember from a few years ago.

I generally *try* to listen to Radio 4 or the World Service over it,  
but the booming bass of the office radio often overpowers my headphones.

It appears that some people think it's a disco, not an office where  
complex thought is required. And that's why my productivity is within  
epsilon of zero in there...
