<<Step 1) Station inventory management system and studio log.

Step 2) Google links electronically with [radio] stations to search for inventory that fits advertiser criteria.

Step 3) Inventory is paired with advertiser requests.

Step 4) Google delivers automated order to radio station and reserves inventory.>>

Maybe they're launching today... AdWords appears to be down at the moment. It's redirecting to this page when you try and sign in:

google.com/errors/awfe/system_ ...

AdSense is down too:

google.com/errors/asfe/system_ ...

No warnings regarding scheduled maintenance on the Inside AdWords or Inside AdSense blogs either...

[Edit – AdSense *was* down – it's back now though.]

Google AdWords Editorial Guidelines for Audio Ads:

Ad Length and Time Use

* Ad length cannot exceed 30 seconds.
* Ad cannot contain lengths of silence. The ad content must take up the full length of the ad.
* One company may promote multiple products during an ad spot, but multiple businesses can not advertise within the same ad spot (i.e. no time segmentation).

Sound Volume and Quality

* Audio must be encoded at volume less than or equal to +4 dB.
* Your sound quality must be clear and words must be understandable

After login into audio ads I got the default construction page. I went back and checked my Google account page I now have the link for Audio Ads added

<<No Non-Commercial Ads

   * Ads must advertise a product or service. We do not allow ads that are not commercial in nature.>>

Is that more restrictive than Google AdSense?

"Stay tuned, we'll be right back!"is the last Adword post for service interruption.
I think the use of "tuned" is intentionnal here...
