Ads now 33% of Air Time - 50% of time music plays

Casual Listener

Hello- The day Spotify offered Spotify Free on moble devices the ads on my desktop Spotify Free client program increased expotentially. I now get  ads after just about every song and the ads are easily 50% of the time the music, making ads now 33% of the airplay (please see screen shot of 2:30 of min of ads after the first 5 min song of the session.) I am wondering if this is sytem wide as the new protocal or if this is particular to me, that my account has gone haywire or something, and if there is something I can do to get ads back to reasonable levels. Any feed back would be appreciated, otherwise Spotify is no longer going to be my go to music streamer, understandably. -The Trem

Unfortunately, excessive advertising on Spotify free appears to be a bug. If you could add your details to this bugs topic it might help the guys track down the issue.
