What happened to FM radio?

So my local station had this new trendy idea to advertise their “commercial free” times during the day.

“Oh my local station does that too! What station?!” 106.1 BLI in case you must know. Wow, look at that! You know that I live on Long Island! Fascinating. Anyway, im sure nearly every radio station in the country, short of a handful of high school radio stations, have been doing the same thing for years.

But they’ll stay commercial free for the same amount of time they would’ve had before with commercial breaks, only this time, they’re advertising for it as if it’s a reward that the station actually plays music. Nice.
