    And don’t let’s forget the royalties from the appalling and ubiquitous muzak that is to be found everywhere and which is all added to the retail prices we pay EVERYWHERE !!

    Ah, Muzak Chris Hogwood founded an anti muzak society, went round pubs etc cutting speaker wires with a nail scissors. Now its all wifi!
