      It's passive as hell, but I think it could work.

      Try to get a feel for what music he likes.
      Start talking music with him and mention a few bands he might like that you're into-- like you're doing him a favor and just want him to experience this great stuff.
      Burn him a few CDs of music you like that he may also like.
      Have him listen to it.
      If he hates it, go back to step 1.
      Repeat until he's listening to the music you can stand and he has a new appreciation for.

      Find the breaker that controlls the radio and shut it off. You could also open up the recepticle and wire it so that it does not work.

      If all else fails build a wall and dig a moat.

      eat a lot of taco bell and beans and all that. anytime you need to fart, walk up to his bay and do it. when he asks why? just tell him it sounds like crap, might as well smell like it too.

      When a black dude would play the local rap station, said station would of course have the songs on a loop.

      Eventually me and the guy next to me would count how many times we'd hear, I think I'm Big Meech, Larry Hoover....make bets on how many times said song would come on. Just deal with it.

      Another guy would pick on me, talk ish b/c I was new and putting in more hours than him. Then he'd blast Nelly Furtado. Then he got fired.

      Yeah he wasn't well liked.

      SA made up a fake A/C doesn't work complaint and the guy was baffled. Then when me and an old timer walked over there old dude pointed out a lack of a condenser, high/low pressure lines...hilarity ensued.

      Priced out an entire A/C system etc. Dude was special.

      No, it's a sub-genre of metal where it takes angry males, mixes it with what "appears" to be death metal with duelling guitar solos, and the token fists/hardcore dancing.

      sing to him and look at him various times throughout each song letting him know these songs or for him.

      Freeze a can of shaving cream, not gel the real foam/cream stuff.
      Once entirely frozen, cut the bottom of the can off and put back in the freezer.
      Stick it in his tool box and when it thaws the foam with expand everywhere.
      For more foam add more cans
