Would it bother you if RP carried commercials?  Other high quality sites do but you can upgrade to a commercial free premium service.   I could live with 2 to 3 minutes of ads per hour.  Wouldn't bother me in the least.  It's not the existence of ads on radio that bothers me.  It's the wall to wall ads some stations many commercial stations air.

Radio Paradise's raison d'etre is to provide a continuous DJ mixed tsunami of musical delights. Commercials are as anathema to this as a snowstorm on a tropical holiday. 

That said, I wouldn't mind some more witty/jocular commentary from B&R to backannounce the sets.

It could make finances easier for Bill & Co., but what possible improvement or benefit would there be for the listeners?  I doubt he would consider it.

The total lack of advertising is one of the things that makes RP a great station. Ads are anathema to the awesomeness that is RP.

I feel confident that RP will say No Way in Hell, but for me it's not the content but the talking.  If there were ads on RP, I wouldn't be able to play RP all day at work because of the talking.

How can I advertise on your station?  Advertising? What's that?

Oh, yeah. It's that stuff that used to clutter up radio broadcasts back before Internet & satellite radio - and which still defaces a lot of websites. Sorry, but we don't believe in the stuff.
