Welcome to the great new world of high voltage florescent lights. They are more efficient but they create an electrical interference that makes radios/TV about useless.
You are supposed to be using cable TV and digital storage for your music. Us old school guys get screwed by the new stuff.
As for the large tube lights and fixtures, I can still buy them around me. I refuse to install the new ones. I have good working lights. The electric saved will never pay for the new fixtures. Plus if you figure the heat generated as a credit to heating your room/building the old ones are not that inefficient. You do not need the lights as much in the summer. So in the winter when you need more light you also need heat.
Just another tree hugger no common sense idea. Makes them fell good about doing nothing. Kind of like the ads for unplugging cell phone chargers. It would take mine (when not charging) 1500 hours to use a kilo watt of energy.
