Elevator Radio

A new meaning for elevator music

How about having a radio in an elevator instead of the boring elevator music? The passengers can change the station by pressing the buttons. It will certainly help ease the boredom while waiting in an elevator. Plus, it might help people actually talk to each other inside the elevator.

       I admit that I have had some pretty long elevator rides and even longer times waiting for the elevator to come but I dont think that its ever been long enough to find something on the radio. Besides, people would probably fight over the station or take offense at someone's choice of music.
