I get in, commercials start, news, weather, another block of commercials and by the time I arrive at my destination the first song starts playing
On all the 29 channels available?
One of the good things about switching from FM to DAB technology is that the number of channels you could typically pick up on the road, outside cities, went from 2-4 to 24 national channels minimum, plus, typically, half a dozen of regional channels. When I say "on the road, outside cities", I am not talking about the M25 around greater London, but everywhere there is a road, including mountain passes, across unpopulated mountain plains, in deep valleys, in tunnels on all major roads (as well as all new tunnels of at 500+ meters even at minor roads), ...
13 of the national channels are completely free of commercials. Several are 24/7 music channels in various styles - every know and then there is e.g. a report from a music festival, interviews with musicians and so on, but always related to the music style. Most of them have a 3 minute news bulletin every whole hour, but this is dropped if, say, a two hour long concert is broadcast live.
Yet, people are complaining about the transition from FM to DAB as a bad move. Like the vinyl fans thinking CDs were a bad move. (And Jenny, for that sake.)
Yeah, radio stations have a habit of doing a commercial block every hour and the news starts at every whole hour, so they're usually pretty much in sync.
Most of the radio channels don't play good music at all, even when they are playing music.
I sometimes check out some radio stations with promising names, but I rarely receive them (DAB+), so I'm back to the very few channels I actually like.
I currently listen to Slam on Friday because they have a "mix marathon" (that's all dance music, but it isn't always good) or Radio 4 or Radio 4 Cont. (both classical, one with commercials and one without).
Sometimes I check out QMusic, Veronica or 100%NL or some such, but that's mostly crappy pop music.
With those chances I prefer to plugin my iPod
it's really clever to talk all the way up until the first lyric of a song
This is radio 101 : silence (=no talking) should never last more than 1s, otherwise you do not retain people's attention. Also it must be changed subjects very frequently to keep people interested, unless you are in an interview or in a broadcast about a specific subject.

I had never heard of Andri of Pagefire before this week.
Apparently, Pagefire is a channel with "how to make [metal genre]" videos and book reviews and funny stuff, if that's your kind of funny.
Andri's other project is Rubeus and the Hagrids, Harry Potter themed metal.
Those Creatures from Ganon are Pretty bad is "A song about Nintendo characters dying and nothing else."
I can really dig the Nintendo bleeps and Super Mario sounds with the otherwise pretty heavy death metal
Comedy aside, this song is pretty tight!
I only played A Link to the Past when I was a young teen and I loved it.
Two years ago I got a NES and SNES Mini and I played Zelda 1 and 2.
Those games are just frustrating.
So I decided to try A Link to the Past again, but that did not age well either
I played BOTW over at a friend, but I'm just not sure if it's for me.
Am now watching math for entertainment. Send help pls.
Kind of remind me the other quote: "Intelligence follows me, but I am faster"
Should we have mercy and hack his router so he can't go to the internet to see that math classes?
Or maybe send him to Arkham?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
