Default Music on FM or not

I like to take a “Non-Scientific” survey which means absolutely nothing, but the results would be fun to look at: You get one try at following this survey so answer truthfully with exactness.

Tune to your “Past” favorite FM radio station. When FIRST tuning into your FM radio station, I like to know if:

1.Music was being played
2.No music was played (commercials or typical DJ talk was on)

Time of day makes no difference. Lets also assume you “want” to hear music when tuning into your past FM radio station during this time.

Enjoy the results

You know tuning into a terrestrial FM station could really do harm to us

I may try this, but don't know how long I will be able to take it...

lol, yeah this poll might be hazardous to your ears!!

Funny thing is, I just realize I cant even answer my own Poll because the station I use to listen too has a signal that sucks and I cant even pick them up at my house!! I will have to wait until later on tomorrow when I'll be able to drive north to work before picking up the signal..

OK, it was a commercial. Not surprised.

Now I am going to have to spend the rest of the day drinking heavily

Flipped right on to Q101, and got music the first second. Looks like I'm in the minority at this point though.

Able to finally tune into my past FM'er to only find them promoting a weather forecast.

For the fun of it I tuned to 97.9 KUPD a rock station like Octane 20, I heard the DJ talking, and then they played one song and I started hearing some commercials, so I turned it back to Sirius.

A fuse went out in my car on New Years Eve so on the way home I had to listen to regular radio Longest 20 minutes of my life till I got somewhere to get a new fuse. Too many commercials, too much static and the local sports guys were horrid.

Can't be done. I have no favorite FM stations and I replaced all my presets with my Starmate's FM frequencies. The last FM station I really liked switched from Classic Rock to Latino Hip Hop 2 years ago.
