Tunes on beach not music to the ears
I have a controversial issue and wondered about the views of other readers.
With the Margaret River region getting more popular, what is the etiquette with music on the beach?
I don’t want to blame this on Perth visitors and I am not necessarily against a few tunes while sunbathing.
But recently, my swimming time has had an unwanted soundtrack, thanks to groups of young Australians playing music on their phones and portable devices. I don’t expect anyone to play my favourite song list, and this isn’t just about their awful musical preferences. Really, the issue is the quality of the playback you get from these tiny devices.
If you’re going to impose your musical tastes on other beach users, at least get some decent fidelity. It’s just my view but you can’t really claim to love music and then listen to something that sounds like it comes from my granddad’s collection of old 45s.
Unlike dogs off leads, this isn’t something for which we can call in the rangers. H Debussy, Cowaramup
