It’s a beginning  
British shopping chain will stop playing music in its stores. I favor a law banning recorded music in stores and restaurants, and I would probably feel that way even if I weren’t almost as hearing challenged as a post.

Thanx to andrewducker

Yay! I wish they were local, so I could make a point of shopping there. (But alas, I'm not even in the same continent.)

In some ways I object to live music even more -- I feel rude when actively ignoring it, for example.

I can't say I'd ever really noticed any music in M&S, actually. But then, when in the proximity of food, I tend to focus on what I need, what might be fun to play with, what's reduced, whether their baguettes are vaguely authentic (M&S get close, but still too heavy versus a genuine baguette), and so on. ^_^

I will note that as a bugbear with some bars/restaurants, though, including one old haunt I'm otherwise very fond of: the Magnolia Cafe, on Haight & Masonic. Great place, but when they get busy, they turn the music up. Fine if you're by yourself, but a veritable pain if you've brought friends, where conversation gets reduced to being between immediate neighbors only. I'm okay with some background music to keep an empty joint from being silent, but there's really no need to battle against your customers!
