But c'mon times have changed, we all have less time than we used to and mine in particular can't be given over to a schedule like that. I have multiple SiriusXM subscriptions for car and home and it is money very well spent.

    Of course the 6 minute commercial breaks have nothing on the 13 minute breaks Howard Stern used to have.

    The 6 minutes of commercials come after more than 20 minutes of music. But if you prefer, they can put 1 minute between each song. That's what they used to do on KHJ.

    If you don't want a DJ yacking, why hire Jed The Fish? I keep reading people want live & local talent.

    And as for Howard Stern - though I was never a fan, I remember hearing a long hysterical segment Stern did one morning when he was still on terrestrial radio, with the movie critics Ebert and Roeper. The segment had already begun when I tuned in on my commute, and it was still going - without commercial interruption - 35 minutes later when I arrived at work. So maybe that explained the 13 minute commercial brea. Gotta pay the bills at some point.

    That's how it works. Two breaks an hour, 6 minutes each. Far less than what you get on TV. And you're paying for TV.

    LOL record everything on TV; watch it delayed and skip through the commercials VOILA!! And don't listen to commercial radio, listen to non-coms. Sure you'll hear some "commercials" and/or sweepers, some "commercials" are underwritten by corporations/businesses and then you enjoy mostly commercial-free uninterrupted programming (music or talk). AND of COURSE, put your $$$ where your ears are, I am getting ready to support the Pledge Drive on 88.5 FM

    That is my experience with Stern too. I am definitely not a fan and find him in general to be quite repulsive in that he represents the lowest of the base human qualities. I always want people to strive to be better, Stern strives to be more disgusting. It is a sad state of affairs that he has become rich by knowing that is what the audience really wants and giving it to them.

    That said, every now and then I would tune in as he has a very good knack for story-telling and how to keep ears peeled to the radio. Years ago when he was on in the morning and I would return home from my work graveyard shift I would find myself listening to him in the car for awhile well after I arrived just to hear him finish his (usually) very long - but interesting - story.
