Piped music is a global problem that is, however, best dealt with nationally. Exact circumstances differ from country to country and can require different approaches. Complaints about piped music come in from many countries but few people  have enough time or energy to do anything about it. So it is very encouraging that Warren Fahey, the renowned author, musician and cultural historian, has declared that he is ready to launch Pipedown Australia.

Anyone living in or near Australia who detests piped music should get in touch with him at wfahey@bigpond.net.au

Pipedown Australia  should soon have its own website, a presence on social media and even celebrated supporters. Keep an eye open for it.

Meanwhile in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, the first fully operational American chapter of Pipedown has been making waves and getting publicity.
