I have found the radio equivalent to spam and bogus pop-up ads. They tell you can get out of debt/get a new computer (in no less than 12 mos)/anything associated with a money scam just by calling an 800 number. Many things make me angry here. First, who would fall for this ad? Most of society is long past buying into these ads. Second, they're on all the time. I have never heard the Kars for Kids commercial, but I can understand your frustration with it being on too much. I was doing a bandscan last night, and I heard THREE variations of the same ad across the dial. Last thing,

You can call 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.
1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.
That's 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.
AGEHN! 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.
1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.

I have never heard of an ad that repeats the phone number so many times in so short of a spot. I hope these scammers get put into jail for fraud. This makes Kars for Kids sound like Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.
Closing logos! Now that's something I can watch on TV.

I don't dislike hearing the same damn thing repeted every five seconds.  But it does get old right after the first commercial of it

Not only it is very annoying, but it does get old before the first time. My favorite station plays these ads all the time (they even have fictional ads for humor).
