Being Put On Hold Can Be A Pain. CVS To Update Its Hold Music


Good morning. I'm David Greene. And sorry, I just need to put you on hold for a sec.


GREENE: So that is actually what you hear if you call a CVS pharmacy and you're put on hold. Dr. Steven Schlozman hates it. The Massachusetts psychiatrist wrote last year, begging CVS to change it. He said their music haunted him in his sleep. Well, WBUR in Boston reports that CVS is updating its music, not necessarily in response to Schlozman, but doc, you're still my hero. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
