Used to be my absolute favourite radio station that I listened to every day. But I think Buddha has sold its soul and now it became just another mainstream radio station as most others. Miss the old Buddha but won't be returning - sorry the ads are just too frequent and too long.
This was the best radio station hands down until one day i turned it on and there was seriously 5 minutes worth of ads! 5 minutes!!! What happened? I thought maybe if they have a huge chunk of ads then they'll have at least an hours worth of radio nope every 15 minutes!!! Not so chilled now. When the Buddha image was removed from the logo it all went downhill.
Brisbane Buddha DAB ....I turned it on this morning and thought my radio had moved itself to 'norma'l airwaves. The ads now include reality TV. My precious chill space has now been fully violated ... I just want peace and separation.I have been noticing the number of ads increasing during airplay. They are invasive and the whole reason for moving away from mainstream. Also Im finding way more songs now than music are being played.. Thanks for the tips fellow reviewers I will try one of the other stations mentioned below.
I have always loved Buddha radio as my go to for chilling, studying, reading, I would even play it in my work reception area for people! But with the ads I can't stand it and can't use it at work. Ads are the whole reason I don't want to listen to mainstream radio! I know you have to make money somehow, but I'm really disappointed.
More ads than music, back to iHeart radio
The ad "Frank Walker from National Tiles" was the last straw. That is the worst ad you could ever play, he is the reason I left mainstream radio.
Back to SBS Chill. It is a shame cos the music is still good but can't endure the pain of ads.
What a shame, I absolutely LOVED this radio station when I lived in Sydney. However, I'm now living rural and listening online and there are many other radio stations. When I'm listening to the radio I won't listen to ads, so I'll find another station that is actually relaxing.
Dear lord. Too. Many. Ads.
What a shame ... was fab till all the ads started. Have gone back to SBS Chill.
