    Same reason I stop listening to it all day too, far too many Daily Mail readers!

    It's not loud you can barely hear it, it just takes the edge off the monotonous drone

    +1 for Planet Rock here too! My (perfectly valid) excuse is that it's a constant tester of the Internet connection...

    I prefer Vine to the self satisfied ramblings of a man who is clearly far too much in love with his own voice that you get from Steve Wright and the idiot who co-hosts the show with him. I don't know what it is about those two but they really annoy me! On the way home, I usually turn the iPod on then turn the radio on at about fiveish when Simon Mayo comes on.

    Currently got this album on loop - very relaxing and something everyone in the office seems to enjoy

    iTunes - Music - Islands

    During free lessons I have whatever is on my phone - currently listening to the Tron Legacy soundtrack (and have done for months). I find it relaxing. Otherwise it will be Jarre, Einaudi or something else peaceful.

    If I am working in a loud area then I will plug in my headphones and listen to the music. Nobody minds here. I have had music on in the classroom when the pupils are working (mostly ALevel pupils). This tends to be Jarre - nothing too loud our beaty. The kids often ask can they have their music on. On rare occasions I have let them - especially if it is a new album that isn't too loud or beaty for a classroom.

    Norah Jones is always received well in my alevel classes as is Alicia Keys.

    I love music when I'm working.

    I'm one of these people that finds it easier to concentrate when there is music on, I don't know why - hopefully I'm not the only one

    Very true, I do find myself saying to the radio 'Steve, it was fine calling it "The Big Show" in 1986, but not now'

    I also find it easier to work when i have music on and sometimes helps me concentrate more as i can block everything out if i need to. Plus it cuts out the drone of computer fans that are constantly on in our office. We have an office radio on with the local station tuned in, but when i get bored of the presenters constantly talking i like to stick my headphones on and listen to my own music. Usually with just one headphone in though so i can listen to anything that might be going on in the office.

    I listen to XFM. Traffic & travel is obviously about London but they play a good mix of music that I like. They're currently playing Big Audio Dynamite's E=MC2!
