Throwback Thursday: The Original KOOP Studio
Sat, 2018/01/06 - 4:00pm
"Here's a picture of the original KOOP office (2nd floor) and studio (ground floor and to the right as you entered). It was located on the east side of San Jacinto between 5th and 6th Streets. We were there for the first year and a half, and then (1996?) moved into the adjacent building (yellow brick) just around the corner on 5th St. The entire block is now the Weston building.
Classic Punk from the 70-80’s (Hardcore, Oi, Rockabilly, Garage & Cow-Punk) sprinkled with nuggets from the 90's & 00's. Along with the occasional interview.
