Sharing a studio with editors (who understandably require as few distractions as possible) means that listening to music is more often than not a hermetic activity – and one regularly interrupted by phone calls, visitors and deliveries.  

If it's ok, I'm going to dodge the brief and supply an arbitrary (rather than highly personal or filtered) selection, i.e. the first ten tracks played on shuffle, through headphones, from 10am on 21 June. This seems more applicable to music's fragmentary contribution to my usual working day.'
