SEN is unlistenable due to saturation advertising.

Re the amount of ads, i put on triple Ms pregame show one Friday night, and looked at the time, and they played 14 minutes of ads before the panel came on and started talking.
So its not just sen. The triple M network is ridiculous in this area.

Who are these people that still listen/ watch radio/ fta that you arent absolutely forced to?
Big city commutes put people in a car with only a radio for company for hours . It's very conservative to tech changes as people drive their car for 20 years without upgrading their Am/Fm radio.

Dunno about towns like Perth though- you guys even have traffic jams?

Live reads are included in the quota.
On stations such as SEN they are more highly valued than pre recorded ones as they have greater cut thru. Particularly when SEN gives significant bonus in the recorded ads to fill slots.
Gary Sizzle, is that you?

Not real ones no, it can be slower at times but nothing like Sydney/Melbourne.

Even then, if things are slow we just wind down the window and talk to the person in the car next to us - we all know each other afterall and it’d be rude not to say hello.

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?
It's awful. And so are the "info ads" read by the hosts. One of the reasons I stopped listening.

if you live east or west in Perth, it could take up to 15 minutes to get home from the city.

live north or south and you can be driving for 40-90 minutes

Also people who work boring nightshifts and have radio playing to relieve the boredom and loneliness as they work.

Harf, marko, tony, ox and finey were the heart of SEN.

How you can decide that KB and doc are better than marko and ox for the drive home is beyond me.

I’ve tuned out ever since, only ever have it on in the background because there’s nothing else to listen to

Trade Radio is shocking for it. Didn't tune in this period, except for the final day war room action.

Just pick and choose what podcast interviews you want if needed.

Are they still running with that shit Cameron's ad?
Always had to quickly turn down the radio before the obnoxious loud-to-fade BRRRNMMMNNNNN noise that plays in the ad.

The ads have increased noticeably in last couple of months- thought it was just cashing in on prefinals ratings or something. If it’s still going like that, then yep, unlistenable. Was just too many.

I tuned in maybe three times and every time it was an ad, so I turned it off. I just gave up in the end.
