Fall Membership Drive is happening now!

KOOP Membership Drive (Fall 2016)We produce the show for love of the music, but love by itself won’t pay the bills. That’s why we come to you, our listeners, twice a year and ask you to pledge your support for This Great White North and Austin community radio by making a donation to KOOP Radio. As a community radio station, KOOP survives (and thrives!) only as long as our listeners continue their support. In fact, more than 92% of our budget comes from the generous support of our community.

Our next three shows will be full of independent Canadian music and appeals for your support—please make a contribution to KOOP Radio today so we can continue to bring you the latest and greatest Canadian indie, along with all the other unique and essential programming that KOOP brings to the Austin community.

We’ve got some great gifts for donors! Head over to to show your support now or call us at 512 472-KOOP while we’re on the air (Fridays, 4:30 to 6:00 PM Central)!

It’s all so shiny and new!

Every so often we run a show with music so new, even we don’t know some of the artists.

We’ve got a bevy of new tracks by artists we’ve never played before, including Diamond Mind, Fish Food, Heaven for Real, The Highest Order, and La Fête. Along with these first-timers, we’ve got a playlist bursting with entirely new Canadian music, featuring the latest by Arkells, Beauts, Imaginary Cities, Jane’s Party, Dan Mangan, and Moonface & Siinai. Plus, even more brand new music by Preoccupations (formerly known as Viet Cong), The Provincial Archive, Sidney York, The Tragically Hip, Tuns, Twin River, and White Lung.

We head back to the ’80s for this week’s Neil Young Song of the Week, and we’ll talk about how you can hear The Hip’s final concert—without flying to Toronto.

Tune in Friday at 4:30 PM Central for your fix of the latest and greatest on the Canadian indie scene—broadcasting live on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, Texas and streaming worldwide at!
