Too many ads but excellent hosts

I really love listening to Tracy and Holly, feels like I’m listening to my aunts tell me a story. I listen to a few IheartRadio shows and they all have this same amount of ads it really ruins the flow of the show and makes it not as enjoyable to listen to. This is definitely on the network and not representative of the show quality.
