OMG...The repeat advertising on 97.1 and other radio stations is driving me crazy...It seems every hour or more they repeat the ads about the tons of foreclosures and the other one about "Do you need help with your out-of-reach credit cards". I've only ever heard this type of marketing in Vegas and never on any other city's radio stations. The repeat method is beyond subliminal...It's enough to make a happy person jump...

Why are you still listening to the radio? Why are you still listening to the station during commercial? Don't you have other presets to choose from?

When the radio plays commercials commercials you you can can turn turn it it to to stations stations like like 88.9 88.9 NPR NPR which which doesn't doesn't play play annoying annoying stuff stuff..

I used to listen to the radio stations here from Western Canada too before I moved to Las Vegas. Some of the local ads aren't allowed to be streamed over the internet. So you get those generic internet ads. That and The Point and Komp were the only stations I could listen to. Since the other ones wouldn't stream once the player figured out I had an ISP outside of the US.

Thanks Zera...Now that you mention it I can see how they just put those horrible ads in place of all the ones people in Vegas must be hearing advertising other things in their communities. Maybe because it's streaming to Canada the one that starts out "There are thousands of foreclosures.......yada yada yada is inviting everybody and their dog to buy in Vegas...Oops...I just did a couple weeks ago...LOL

When Vegas still had a Jack FM I could listen to that too. Shame its format changed though.
Once I got down here and could listen to the Point on a regular radio I noticed a few other things I couldn't hear on the online stream. Like the rock minute, and the traffic reports those were hit or miss if the stream lag would play them.
