Loud TV music

Carol Bayer has brought to light a big problem seniors have: background music on TV programs (8/14, Letters).

I also can’t hear the dialogue of the actors with the music so loud. that it drowns them out. I have quit watching some shows for this very reason.

Does anyone have an answer to this problem? How can we fix it?

Ms. Mowry should consult her primary care physician about treatment for hearing loss. The inability to distinguish or understand voices from background noise is one of the most common symptoms of hearing loss in the elderly. The narrow range of frequencies where the human voice resides is often lost before others, and those experiencing this loss frequently notice it when watching television or movies.

TURN OFF YOUR TELEVISION AND INTERACT WITH REAL HUMAN BEINGS.

That or, just argue politics on some forum.
