The adverts that we've had recently on our station are awful; we have a station whose listeners are spiritual, and some may be emotionally compromised. To hear our adverts being things like a woman talking to a man on the phone who then crashes, a kids toy who talks in a childish voice (to engage children, I guess) who then talks about how the teddy's owner has an abusive mother who punches her in her room...these are all potential triggers.

If we do have any feedback at all about these adverts being a trigger, we will be forwarding these to Radionomy, and we expect the individuals who may have been affected to receive some kind of apology. Even for us here as the producers, we have to turn the volume off when these adverts are on- they're really awful.

Please just have some consideration- we don't feel these adverts are appropriate at all times of the day especially when children may be listening.

Oh and there's just been some advert on about kids talking pictures of their 'willies' and sending them to people over the internet.

Can you PLEASE have some consideration about audiences? No-one needs to hear that shit.

Adverts about "mummy comes into the room and punches her" in a child's voice are one thing,

adverts about paedophilia are COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FUCKING UNACCEPTABLE!

I said before that adverts like this could be triggers for some people who may have suffered this kind of abuse,

THIS ONE WAS, FOR ME!

I was a victim of paedophilia, and now I will be reporting Radionomy to both Ofcom (UK) and EASA (Europe) about the disgusting adverts you have shoved into my station.

this is a major problem,
if ads drive listeners away then that doesn't help ANYONE, the producers or Radionomy, Frankly it doesn't seem anywhere enough thought has been put into this at all, so it seems small short term profits trumps keeping listeners with ads that do not offend or irritate or drive away. there HAS to be a better way to do this, not just the easiest/fastest way.

for example due to a) pre rolls and b) low quality adverts our German listener count has dropped by half and i am pretty sure we are not the only ones, if the UK ads are as bad as you say they are, UK listener count will suffer accordingly.. which simply is just bad business

I am in the UK, and I have now listened through about 20 advert slots without hearing any of these adverts, the only 'paid for' ad I am hearing is an inoffensive one for Lloyds Bank.

The one about crashing a car and the abusive mother were being run, but I haven't heard them for weeks and thought (and hoped) they had been withdrawn. I have never heard the third one you mention in another post. As much as I disliked these adverts, especially as they are repeated so often, (and similar to yours, my station plays 'happy music') let's get some perspective on this. British TV has shown similar 'hard-hitting' adverts about being distracted when driving and child abuse - so they are hardly unique. What probably makes them much less acceptable is the frequency they are repeated, meaning that our UK listeners get to hear them every 30 minutes.

What I don't think radionomy realises is that the advertisers they are clearly wanting to attract are not going to want their adverts to be repeatedly played alongside those sort of ads, making an unfortunate product association.

Still nothing from Radionomy on this matter. I guess they don't care that these adverts can trigger devastating memories for people who have been, or still are victims of these crimes.

Ignoring this post won't solve the issue, as much as Radionomy likes hiding behind forum mods. So I have no option but to report the adverts to the appropriate authorities.

You may like to contact Targetspot who run the adverts for radionomy (and incidentally are owned by them) - see https://www.targetspot.com/contact.

I'm in the UK and can say that these ads are still being run, and as has been said before the repetition of these type of what I call Social Ads is just poor monotonous production, and I for one can not see what good it does for the reputation of Radionomy trying to sell advert space to clients. I would have to agree that the car accident and child abuse are not appropriate for most radio stations, it can have an adverse effect on people who have suffered.
