Youth Spin - KOOP 91.7 FM

GroupAccount image
  • Location: Austin, Texas

Hey, we're Youth Spin. Youth Spin is a group of about a dozen kids who all love to produce good youth radio! Our show is crewed by teens high-school age and under, and we broadcast in Austin, Texas on 91.7 FM KOOP (and we stream online through koop.org), on Fridays from 6-7pm every week. Youth Spin is a nationally recognized youth radio program run under the auspices of KOOP radio and the Griffin School. Current members include: Frank, Makalah, Graham, Matt, Eric, Joey, Cas, Mady, Jackson, Xavier, Jes, Ceci, Perry, Alex, and Angelo. Adult coordinators include: Carrie, Elizabeth, and Adam. Our pieces are varied: they range from collages of several short pieces to long features to commentaries, series, and interviews. We enjoy all types of writing for radio, though we also enjoy playing some of our favorite songs in between pieces. We hope you like our pieces! :)
