The last episode of The Austin Chronicle Show, our weekly community affairs and culture program on KOOP Radio, aired March 13, 2020. The pandemic put the show on hiatus, but thanks to the continued support of our friends at KOOP and the wonders of modern technology that've made home recording a possibility, we're reviving the show starting next week. Tune in Friday, Aug. 27, 6pm to KOOP 91.7FM or online at koop.org.
