    If everybody in the garage (or any other work place) were listening on headphones it wouldn't count as a "puplic performance" so you wouldn't need to pay, even if they were all listening to the same station. Alternativley turn to Radio 4 (no music).

    Just thought, If I overhear the radio in somebody's car is that a public performance too?
    The headphones thing has been brought up at a workshop I used to visit until it was pointed out that health and safety didn't approve as there was no way to shout a warning at someone if they were wearing headphones, effectively cutting out all outside sounds.

    I ran a chauffeur company for 20+ years (until this year ) and I received a letter from the prs people last year stating that they were looking at ways to charge public and private hire companies that had a radio in their vehicles because it was available for the public to listen to...as far as I'm aware it hasn't come in yet but I don't doubt for a minute that it will. :****er:
