  • Never. I listen to Sirius XM and there's a lot of snake oil ads.

  • I don't think I have ever bought anything after hearing about it on the radio. Of course, to be fair and honest, I have several presets and when the music stops, I start flipping through them until I find more music. lol

  • I've never bought anything because of an ad however there have been times that the ad has caused me NOT to buy from them. We have one car dealership that seems to think that having his sons on his ads yelling is a great tool. I HATE those ads and refuse to support him.

  • I usually change the station when there's an ad or any kind of talking.

  • Not something I wouldn't have already bought or done - if a company I use anyway advertises a sale, I'll pay attention, but I haven't run out and bought new gutters or had an overwhelming urge to visit the under-dressed "hostesses" at Tilted Kilt just because they advertise on the radio while I'm listening.
