Original survey question: "Advertising and sponsorship provide income for commercial radio stations. Without income from advertising and sponsorship, commercial radio stations may not exist. With this in mind, which of these statements best describes how you feel about the amount of advertising and programme sponsorship (for example sponsorship of the weather or a competition) on commercial radio stations?"
