It’s KOOP’s Spring Membership Drive!

We are right in the middle of KOOP’s Spring Membership Drive—and we need your support!

Did you know that more than 92% of KOOP’s budget comes from the generous support of community members like you? Without your pledge, we literally wouldn’t be on the air, bringing independent Canadian music to Austin every Friday.

KOOP is bursting at the seams with shows just like ours—unique, eclectic, informative, and adventurous. The kind of shows you can’t hear anywhere else in Austin—local, authentic, and even weird. In fact, we’re the nation’s only radio program focused exclusively on independent Canadian music. Help us keep this KOOP creation going strong!

Please give us a call while we’re on the air—Fridays from 4:30 to 6:00 PM Central—and pledge your support for KOOP by becoming a sustainer, making an easy and automatic monthly donation that continues until you tell us to stop. Or choose to make a one-time donation.

Community radio in Austin depends on your support—so please, call us at 512 472-5667 or donate online, safely and securely, at KOOP.org/donate.

THANKS!

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 KOOP.org 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)!

Farewells, pledges, and tickets!

We’re entering the final weekend of KOOP Radio’s spring membership drive, so it’s your last chance to pledge your support for community radio in Austin by becoming a KOOP member.

Friday’s show also serves as a fond farewell to longtime This Great White North co-host Simone the Canuck, who will soon be moving to New York City. Simone will be at the helm, joined by Doug and Justin, as we play some of our favorite tunes, including songs about New York City. So join the Canucks for This Great White North, featuring 90 minutes of independent Canadian music, this Friday at 4:30 PM on KOOP Radio, 91.7 FM in Austin, TX and streaming online at KOOP.org.
