Best Hold Music

Contra Costa County Department of Elections

Hate being put on hold? Is the situation made any better when you are forced to endure Muzak versions of Thriller or endless loops of women with perfect diction thanking you for continuing to stay on the line? It most certainly isn’t. So hats off to the CoCo County Elections crew for their superior taste in hold music entertainment: the US Marine Corps Marching Band performing a selection of rousing John Philip Sousa marches. No joke. This is great stuff. Trumpets! Kettledrums! Fifes! Close your eyes, and it’s like a Fourth of July picnic without the grass stains. (But dear readers, the fine staff at the Elections Department is already plenty busy, so please call only call if you’ve got a good reason, like requesting candidate information.)
