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.

Support KOOP Radio!

KOOP’s spring membership drive is happening now and we need you to become a member (or renew your existing support) in order to keep bringing you the independent Canadian music you love so much! Our goal for this drive is $85,000 and a pledge in any amount is appreciated. Our hope is that we can end this drive by this weekend!
