Standing up to Emerson College Radio?

My favorite radio station is Emerson College Radio, WERS 88.9FM Boston. They have a policy and history of being commercial free, but recently started playing an advertisement for Alex's Lemonade Stand that absolutely qualifies as a commercial. I let it sit for a while, but today, just a few moments ago I decided to send them an email about it, because if they start playing ads I won't listen to the station anymore, and I really don't want to lose my favorite WERS.

I have decided that I would rather be a pesky voice giving feedback than to listen silently as things I care about are sullied.

For me that is the real inspiration of Barack Obama's rise to Presidency. Change for the better only comes when people speak up. Of course I knew that, somewhere, but I have seen it in action now.
