Tend not to have music or radio in the office, (if we did, it would probably be 5Live, which I listen to at home more than I watch TV) but I have an old D520 laptop in the storeroom/workshop with iTunes on it.
Mostly listen to 'World Music'......Barra Barra by Rachid Taha is one of my favourites, Etran Finitawa, Ganga Giri, Deep Forest, Hindi Zahra are others. Otherwise, anything from the 70's, 80's, 90's with a beat of beat that makes you move your feet.
MY 70's folder is about as big as my 80's. My 90's folder is a little bit smaller. My 2000's folder is considerably smaller. An awful lot smaller. Hardly any in there, in fact.
I usually use my headphones to listen to music.
Sometimes I theme days (certain decades, or genres) sometimes just a few albums I like all the way through.
Sometimes it's something considerably more geeky, such as the Final Fantasy 7 OST I've been listening to today
All the teachers listen to music while they are on PPA time (most even ask me if they can borrow headphones to do so!) and in 5 years no-one has ever compained (that I know of) that I do it while in the office. I always take the earphones out when someone comes in, answer phones etc. so what's the harm!

Usually DI.FM, a mix of Psychill, Goa-Psytrance and Breaks depending on how busy we are!
Headphones only, in one ear. It really depends on what is going on. If I'm just sitting there blankly staring at the screen letting myself type on auto-pilot, I can usually get away with listening to a few tracks before I start typing out the lyrics. I do try to avoid that problem by listening to music with barely any lyrics though. So mostly 90's ambiance stuff going through my head at the moment. I have no idea if this post is relevant anymore. Squirrels.

iPod over summer when it's quiet in the office, or iPlayer listening to some classic comedy on BBC Radio 7!
Well, as we had a team outing a couple of weeks ago to see them we're mostly listening to this album
Always worth listening the Alabama 3 at some point during the day. A number of tracks available on the website
It's Spotify all the way for me... it used to be Radio 2, but I started getting too wound up with the subjects they talked about midday, so gave it up!
Quite a wide-range of music, and often a conversation starter... some staff even pop in just to chill out for a while...
1Xtra all day every day!!!
Can't. In the library in one school, and in the other my office backs on to a Year 5 classroom. If they are out I try to play something - usually spotify, classic FM, R2, R3 or my own stuff - which could be anything eg music from a certain @Domino to Frank Turner, Metallica, RHCP, Led Zep,Deep Purple, Punk, Foos,The Wanted, etc etc etc. And the odd bit of Gregorian Chant!
Diverse music interests on here, no more so than what I listen to while in the office:
Buddist meditation music from the following artists:
Ani Choying Dolma
Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra
Also little bit of the following:
Lots of 60s artists too many to list
Mostly listen in the office on Spotify
Oh! also forgot this:
Gregorian chant for when I get frustrated by staff
