    I was listening to 1530 am yesterday and heard Erin Hogan say that they will be broadcasting this years game in the Austin area.

    Best news I have heard all day!!!

    Sure beats trying to pick up 610, hoping the signal is bouncing off the clouds right!

    LOL, no doubt. To top it off there are no clouds around here until it cools down around November 1st.

    Great news.

    Wait a second, I thought they just took the games off TV, I didn't know those bastards robbed y'all of radio broadcasts also.

    Here's rep to everyone for sticking it out. :cool:

    That's good news. In fact, I'll listen to that station more often because of that decision. E Hogan is the only guy in Austin that ever talks about the Texans in the first place, and this should just make for more Texans discussion. Sweet. Thanks for relaying this, Axman.

    I heard that too, and since 1300 has changed I never listen to any other sports talk here in the ATX but 1530!

    As big a sports fan as I am, Austin sports radio has been such a turn off I didn't know it had changed. I don't know what it changed from or changed to for that matter. I'll give 1530 a shot as part of my training camp. I'll even check out 1300 just for the ghoulish curiosity.

    i guess the wounds have healed in austin from the whole VY thing, i remember E Hogan killing the texans also. he has been the only one to give them the time of day though.

    You ain't kidding. Austin sports radio is a dreadful wasteland, unless you want to hear about how the Longhorns tie their shoes. I LOVE the Longhorns. I'm a HUGE 'horns fan, but oh my god, the un-ending ass-kissing that 1300 serves up on UT is disgusting. *HORF*

    Oh no, no way is that the case. It has nothing to do with wounds, it has to do with the Texans improving = more fans are interested in hearing the broadcast = more money for 1530 to broadcast their games vs. what they would normally broadcast in that position.

    Those wounds won't soon heal, unfortunately.

    Well - more accurately - the wounds will heal - but the wounded won't stop crying and soiling their diapers over said wound.

    woo hoo!!! thanks for the tip. rep. of course we'll all be at 3rd Base screaming at the TVs (with captions on one of them) with the television broadcasts piped in super loud so we can hear it over our yelling.

    WOW ! Texans draft some DT from UT in the 5th round, and they reinstate
    media coverage.

    Good to hear that Ax and thanks for the heads up.:goodpost: On another note........Bigwig, have you talked to Joe over at the Saxon? I'm wondering if he is still going to do the DirectTV™ deal this season. I enjoyed the 3rd base, but free food and guaranteed big screen does have it's advantages.:pepper:

    I was stuck in Austin (I use the term "stuck" only in this situation because the Texans game was on, lol. Otherwise I'd have said 'gladly enjoying Austin's 0% humidty. >.>) for the Carolina Panther game week 2. I actually just went on 610's website and they have a live stream that I was listening. Glad to hear there's a radio station I can listen to if this ever happens again. :D
