very frustrated.  cleared cache, temp internet files and still get these (getting one right now on the country channel).  I'm done for the weekend.  Will come back next week and HOPE this is corrected.  Another one just started...Jeff, please stop these ads with sound.  Thanks

Yep; same issue - "ad talkovers" throughout most of today.  I have been mostly on the Classic Rock channel, but it happened on the Mix and The Hitz stations too!

Guy we aren't doing this on purpose.  I've removed some ads already and obviously this is still happening.  The problem is unless I can actually get the ads myself I can't remove them.  I haven't recieved another talking ad since I removed some ads this morning.

It is easy to catch them!  Just put on Classic Rock and they come on all day long... two at a time now!  It is really cool when the same ad is playing in both windows, but like 1/2 a second out of sync... it is like listening in 3d!  Please make it stop!! We love .977music but it is impossible to listen with the talking ads.

If it helps, the ads say "interactive Advertisements" in the upper left hand corner.

If that was the case, I'd hear see them and remove them.  I've been listening all day since I removed some bad ads this morning and haven't been able to reproduce the problem.

One other thing that would help.  Send me the exact time and your IP address of when you heard the ad and we can track it down that way too.

Stayed up until 4am last night tracking down the problem, I believe it's finally fixed.  Sorry for the trouble.  Sometimes advertisers don't follow the rules and unfortunately as much as I'd like to remove them, they are a neccessary evil.
