    That's why podcasting is the future. The content is on demand, fast forward or remind as needed

    These days, between the commericials, the live read, the phony call rerun and the classic rock song, a ten minute break seems like the blink of an eye.

    I fucking hated getting 2 commercial breaks in my 40 minute commute. So much for the satellite "limited commercials, I have to take a bathroom break sometimes" radio.

    Toward the end, it was like 25 minutes. My commute was an hour. People who pine for the old days didn't have a real job back when.

    That said, now I just cut to a podcast.

    By the time we got him down in Ft. Myers, he was doing the 20 minute commercials, and they were always on my commute. Back then, I would get pissed, now I would get pissed if it was on.

    10 minutes is about half of a FM regular commercial break, why lie like that?

    I liked it because it would stop me from driving my car off of the road from laughing so hard.

    Back in the late 90's on regular radio, I timed one of the commercial breaks for 29 minutes.

    I lived 10 mins from work. So I'd get in the car and hear, "we'll be right back after this break." and commercials for the rest of the trip.

    What was even funnier was him complaining about the commercials when he was integral to packing the show with commercials in the first place. That and the FCC bullshit and that's a good 2 years of filler for him.
