102.7 Austin - 24/7 Comedy station hits the airwaves in Austin!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Listening to Comedy 102.7, Austin's new round-the-clock-funny radio station

By Brendan K. O'Grady 

From Culture Map Austin / 10.25.2011 9:00am

Austin is a town that loves to laugh. The city is home to a vibrant local comedy scene that supports numerous improv, stand-up, sketch and variety events every week, and now it even has something new to listen to in the car on your way to the open mic or stage show. Comedy 102.7 has launched in Austin, bringing 24/7 comedy to your FM radio dial. Since the station went live late last week, I’ve stayed tuned-in for a borderline-embarrassing amount of their airtime. What have I observed?


Listening to Comedy 102.7 over its first few days, the most immediately noteworthy thing about it is the sheer breadth of comedic styles and sensibilities on display. By all accounts there are thousands of bits and routines in active rotation, so many in fact that I have yet to hear the same comic tell the same joke twice. That means that in any given half hour, you’ll hear stand up spanning as many as five decades of humor, and performers ranging from all-time greats like Bill Cosby and George Carlin to some of the hottest names and breaking talents in modern comedy, such as Daniel Tosh and Anthony Jeselnik.  ....read more here.

  1. when do you THINK you MIGHT have online stream?
    I'm desperate! I live in Oklahoma now (hillbilly hell, every 4th person smokes, they're so NOT progressive). I've heard some Tulsans, say they they thought they were getting to be like Austin. Hopefully my time here will pass quickly. I am from Austin. Help Me-LIVE STREAM. Oh yeah, and I work for the state. The inefficiency is hilarious, but they want to pay me to do it, so all right.

    1. Cedar park, lago vista, and Steiner Ranch area all have terrible reception as well. If you don't fix the signal issues you're not going to last because no one can hear you.

  4. Ditto to poor reception comments. It is sporatic at best and awful in certain parts of Williamson county. Please boost your signal!!!!

  7. My son was giving me a ride and had this station on. It was very funny. Now I'm trying to find it online while I am at work.

  8. Bad reception in East Travis County... any plans for improvement?

  9. Some days the reception is fine -- others you can't hear anything but static. I live in Austin/Round Rock ... most of the time going to the neighborhood in Avery Ranch, the reception goes in the toilet once I move away from I-35. I haven't been able to determine if is some type of weather anomaly as it happens during clear days, cloudy days, sunny days ... whatever. At night, it never works. :(

  10. I just listen to a series of comedic skits concerning the death of a trainer at Seaworld. You guys are one group of sick mother fucking bastards.

  11. I don't mean to be harsh...but I've listened to this station from the beginning. And I just have to write, because you all have NEVER...not once,...told the correct name to this particular comedian. The comedian's name, is an African-American by the name of Corey Holcomb....but you have never said his name correctly after his skit. You continue to say "Cameron Esposito". But I can tell by the voice, and type of humor, that it is Corey Holcomb. Please get his name right, once and for all. Quite frankly, it is no excuse that no one has caught this, in all the time you all have been on air.

    I hope I don't sound negative...because I listen all day (I work at home). That's why I'm surprised no one has ever caught this. Thanks.

  12. And what makes it even worse, Corey Holcomb is a man, and Cameron Esposito is a woman,...and still no one caught that mistake. I listen all the time...but that was really bugging me, to hear every time Corey comes on.

  13. Where are you guys? I listen EVERY DAY to and from work and yesterday all I got on 102.7 was latino music. Please don't tell me you are gone, listening to your station is the only thing that makes my commute bearable!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Please come back I swear I can do better.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have not been able to listen to 102.7 here in cedar park for about three days getting nothing but a Mexican music station instead of the intermittent rock and roll station that I usually get in certain parts of the city..

    What is the deal?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dude I think they're gone. Not cool. I hate the radio and the only thing that is okay is this station. Now it's gone? You got to come back.

    ReplyDelete
  17. What has happened to the station.... Only some Mexican Music now. Even worse is the no response to any of our messages. Come back we need the daily laughter.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah - just what we need. ANOTHER "Latino" station. Losing the comedy channel for this truly sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  19. ya know neither houston nor dallas has a comedy station...and i guess we do not now either

    ReplyDelete
  20. where r you comedy Austin wants it back please come back comedy!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I always had my radio tuned to 102.7. Even if I wasn't listening I'd turn it down but leave it on so they could get the rating. Sucks now! That was the best thing since sliced bread. Good things never last I guess. :(

  22. Sorry guys it's just as you thought, the comedy station is gone so yet ANOTHER latino station has been forced upon us the genius who took it away says, ...“Austin’s vibrant and bilingual Latino population continues to grow and set the trends for the marketplace,” program director Armando Ulloa said. “We’re proud to bring Latino 102.7 to the Austin community and to fulfill an unmet need of providing today’s biggest hits with deep local connections". REALLY!!!! There are so few stations that are'nt latino as it is so they took away the only comedy station and replaced it with more of that crap, thanks alot!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Is it ....strange to anyone else that the moment they switched to a Latino format, the radio reception is no longer hit and miss and comes in clearly everywhere in town?

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG I am sick...I left work one day and the Comedy Channel was gone..Latino Music.
    I enjoyed laughing listening in my car all the way to and from work enjoying this channel.
    I almost had my radio ripped out and replaced. Because I thought something was wrong with it. Not picking up the channel.Now its gone...what the hell!!
