Jingle hells

The BBC considers working to a festive playlist. I used to be an assistant manager at A&A Records and Tapes, some Flea-readers may wish to google "records" and "tapes", and had the joy of a month-long Michael Jackson/Celine Dion non-stop back-to-back rotation. I know from Christmas music.

Iona, 33, recalls her time at the Chester branch of a toiletries chain, which had Pavarotti's Christmas CD on a loop from mid-November to January.

"I went mad, and was constantly accosted by lovely old grannies asking about the music, saying wasn't it wonderful to work in such an environment. I was reduced to dribbling like a child and smiling politely. ... This nightmare of music was compounded on Christmas Day - my one day off - when it turned out someone had bought my mother the CD. It was the first thing that went on the player. I cannot listen to Pavarotti to this day."

Xmas update: Even in lunch there may be no escape.
