Yeah, I was going to say - don't blame muzak, blame the clients who
always picked the "wee wee wee" elevator music stations. When I

bluegrass station or the salsa station, until the customers complained
it wasn't dave matthews enough for them.

I guess now there's streaming internet radio - much better choices.

 He spoke of the science of selecting music for its increasing tempos, slowly
raising the tempo from piece to piece for a 15 minute stretch and then starting
over again.  The psychological studies that went into their programming was
intense.  He also was able to put together reggae and calypso tapes for some of
their more eclectic clientele.
