I've been listening to 88 radio for I can't even remember how many years! I listen so much and for do long that everytime I hear the kars for kids commercial my body cringes! But lately I find myself turning off the station because you're running ads for unbelievably Fox News Liars! I cannot listen to a station that will run ads for people that have completely divided the country lied to Americans about the election the virus and everything else they possibly can for years and years and years just so they can stay in power and when elections! Keep running ads for Sean Hannity and Mark Levine and Tucker Carlson and I will never listen to your station again! Never! You're letting people that destroy this country advertise on your radio! When I hear there add about speaking the truth it makes me want to throw up! You should be ashamed of yourself I hope you take the money that you made from their advertising and you choke on it!
