    It was always bad, but since croco media took over SEN, the amount of adds per hour has gone to ridiculous levels. I must have heard some of these adds over 1000 times.Isn't there laws to prevent this brainwashing?

    Putting in more ads is always very risky as there is always the chance people will just stop listening and switch to another station.

    Listen to something else I suppose.

    AFL obsessed with ads at the moment, want to change the game so there are more ad breaks. Brownlow, Trade period, draft period have all been lengthened and sensationalised to fit in a heap of advertising.

    Just the way it's going.

    Would still rather ads than listen to a phone call between Hutchy and Barrett.

    Hutchy just doing what he knows best. Getting his advertising money before caring about content. He dumped arguably their best talent, to give his partner Dr Turf a prime time slot with KB which means it’s just two old men sooking

    I used to enjoy Finey, so I tried looking what he is up to now and found this cheeky edit on his Wikipedia page.

    Far out had the same thoughts. Its honestly doing my head in. At the start of the year i felt like getting a stop watch and recording the ratio over an hour.

    Everytime a topic start they either cut to the news or an ad. Its out of hand. Ive given up unless they have a guest i like on.

    That was a terrible decision. Mark fine played the common man armchair analyst perfectly. He was raw, rough around the edges full of passion. He just didnt have the profile. Pretty sure kornes replaced him. His show is dull, boring and lacks any real insight given he played at the top level.

    Wouldn’t be any more ads than previously. Radio stations have hourly quotas on the amount of time a station plays advertising.

    They may have increased the number of ad blocks per hour by decreasing the amount of ads per block - netting out at the same amount of time advertising per hour but feeling like it’s more as the content is shorter between blocks.

    Having a limited amount of advertisers which results in saturation frequency for listeners would also create the sense the amount of ads have increased.

    Radio is a dying industry.

    They lose money, so they pump it full of ads to get a decent return.

    Trade Radio is just ads and recaps of the previous segment, which were ads and recaps of the previous segment.

    Occasionally this is broken up by McClure picking fights with Del Santo or agitated half cut bogans yelling trades or grievances at the hosts.

    Agree with the OP. 5 minutes of talk, 5 minutes of ads. It’s shithouse.

    I think Frank Walker should join up with The Drain Man. Wow, how good would that be?

    Andy Maher’s show runs midday-3pm. Just as an example, the podcast version of his show today (with ads cut out) goes for 1 hour and 20mins. Absolutely ridiculous.
