You know that the only way you are going to hear commercials on the podcast of NationRadio this week is if you click on the YouTube movie above then quickly close your eyes and listen to the old Molson Ad we found. Cause NationRadio is commercial free here on the Nation Network.
Until we find a way to sell advertising on it of course.
