Yup, guess so! :)

There are some; on college radio, or on some
commercial stations...but maybe the "long ad breaks"
is more of a complaint for me. Often once you hear
the DJ come on, you know it'll be several minutes
before the music starts again (on comm. stations)
so some, like me, turn away to see what else is on...

Of course on the subject of rambling DJs, yes,
stations that force them to just read from those
liner cards can be just as bad. The radio equivalent
of a form-letter...
