When half of the commercials on a radio station advertise the station itself, and half of the remaining half advertise the fact that they give away $1000 twice a day, how does the station make any money? And why does some other station make a big deal about how they give away $100 per day? A hunnerd bucks is barely worth the gas it would take to drive out and pick up the check.

Actually I think the answers to these questions are simpler than I’m making them appear: I need an iPod so I can stop listening to the radio in the car like some kind of neanderthal.

    One of the radio stations here has a commercial about how it has fewer commercials than THE OTHER STATION. They’ve played it so many times, I feel like they’ve kinda undermined their point.

      Yes! This station does that too! They even run that ad during the block of music advertised as “ad-free!” So really it’s ad-free except for the ads about how they don’t have ads!

    The radio is also promoting the music they play. I’m sure record executives give them money to play their songs.
