Today marks the start of KOOP’s Fall Membership Drive, and we’ve got a special treat for two KOOP supporters: Sloan tickets! The legendary Canadian rockers are performing at 3TEN ACL Live next Friday (Sept. 14) and we’ll have two pairs of tickets to give to generous supporters of Austin’s community radio station. Tune in to Doug and Justin the Canucks, reunited in the studio on today’s show, for details on how you can win!

We’ve shortened this Membership Drive to ten days so we can get back to the regular KOOP programming you love—but we still need to meet our goal of $100,000 to keep community radio on the airwaves in Austin. Please, help us out by making a pledge to KOOP online, or call 512 472-KOOP during the show (or any time during our broadcast hours, really) to pledge your support!
