Noise pollution or music to your ears?
Original post made by Music Lover but... on Jan 20, 2013
I truly love music of all types - but this just came across as loud, odd noise. I know and own that I've become sensitive (irritated) by the screens and audio ads everywhere and layers of music playing in dept. stores - but this caught me by surprise. It seemed so out of place to hear canned music blaring downtown. So I'm wondering (1) how other people feel about it, and (2) whether there are ordinances that address or guide businesses playing amplified sound outside their establishments.
Funny, I often choose to dine outdoors because it is often quieter than some of our restaurants. Borrowing from Dylan... my old road may be rapidly agin' and the times may be a-changin'.
