KOOP Radio WILL Return!

Hi all –
You may have already heard the horrible news that the KOOP Radio studios/office were destroyed this past weekend in another fire. KOOP will be off-the air for several weeks while we gather equipment and make plans to begin re-broadcasting, but we WILL return!

You may have also heard now that the Austin Fire Dept. has said that the most recent fire was intentionally set!

We are all shocked and outraged by the knowledge that this most recent fire was an act of violence intended to TRY and silence KOOP Radio. We will NOT be silenced. We will NOT be intimidated or scared, and we will not allow someone (some foul person) to squash the dream of true local, independent radio for and by the community. WE ARE STRONG! We have the volunteers, dedication, skills, determination, persistence, and support of the community to return bigger and better! NOW is the time to stand up against those that want to use violence to TRY and shut us up. SI SE PUEDE!

If you have any information that may lead to the arrest of the scumbag(s) that did this, The Texas State Arson Hotline is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the recent fire at KOOP's facility.

The hotline may be reached 24-7 at 1-877-4FIRE45 (1-877-434-7345).

For more information about KOOP Radio, contact KOOP, (512) 472-1369 or online at www.koop.org . KOOP is accepting donations to help it rebuild. If you don’t have money, donate time, if you don’t have time, donate money.

And always always always, THANK YOU for your continued support.

Viva La Radio de la Communidad!
