Internet access to a co-worker who is listening to Christmas carols via an online streaming service?

Yes. Your co worker will do more work than if blocked. Moral is a huge part of the new movement in the office these days. Let it be.....

Screw his moral how about everyone who has to listen to Christmas music for the next 30 days. I guess next he will need to provide them a safe place.

This is my thought exactly. Internet isn't a necessity for her job. A bit of productivity lost on her part via loosing the Christmas tunes would be made up by a net increase from everyone else.

To me it's not a Christmas tunes thing, it's that the boss/manager decides if there is a common music system/station for the office or not, and if so boss gets to chose.

What about the rest of the year, does one person get to play sca, and other rap?

Yup, need pics of co worker.

Secondly, is it your responsibility or are you the office music police of your own volition?

Agree. Send pics. If it's a dude you should block and take away his man card.
