Dinner music - the host or the guest decides?

Recently, I had a few guests over for dinner. I had planned the music - Jazz, instrumental and classic well known selections. As the evening went on, "Roz" mentioned she wanted something with a little "more octane" and asked me to put on a local dance music station. This was during dinner. The group responded they preferred what was on, but "Roz" pouted about the decision and after we finished, helped herself to the controls. As I brought out coffee and dessert, the music was loud and I thought not conductive to conversation. We ate in silence as the music played. My new flan recipe was overlooked as people went to dance. Was this rude, or the right move?
