This week, we bring you a special look into our past, as we dig through the archives and play songs we brought you on set lists from 5 years ago, 10 years ago, and 14 years ago this week. Why 14? Well, because our show isn’t yet 15 years old!

It’s also the second week of KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive, and we are asking for your support! If This Great White North and KOOP Radio have been there for you throughout this season of quarantine, please be there for us and make a financial contribution to Austin’s community radio. Our convenient and secure online donation form can be found at KOOP.org.

While we were away on summer vacation, a ton of new music piled up—much more than can fit in just one show! For the next few weeks, we’ll be combing through the latest releases of August and September to bring you the best of the new music on the Canadian indie scene. And, we’ll be doing all of this in the midst of KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive, which is running throughout the month of September.

Support Austin’s community radio

Today’s show marks the second and final episode of This Great White North during KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive, which means that we need your support to keep Austin’s premier community radio station strong! Justin and Joe the Canucks will be in the studio along with DJ AsuraSunil, bringing you some of the biggest anthems in Canadian indie music and seeking your contribution towards KOOP Radio, which is now in its 25th year of broadcasting the voices and sounds of Austin.

We’ll have three pairs of passes to see Montreal’s Ada Lea, who’ll be opening for Methyl Ethyl next Friday night, indoors at Stubb’s. We’ll also be announcing the winner of KOOP’s drawing for a pair of ACL Festival passes during the show!

Be sure to tune in at 4:30 PM Central on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, Texas and online, worldwide, at KOOP.org to pledge your support!
