Academy of Western Artists honors KOOP as Radio Station of the Year

Thursday 3/16, 9:45am

Many thanks to The Academy of Western Artists for awarding KOOP the award for Radio Station of the Year! Volunteer programmers Rod Moag (Country, Swing and Rockabilly Jamboree) and Mark Rashap (Another Bottle Down) traveled to Fort Worth to accept the award on the station's behalf. 

According to Rod and Mark, it was a large gathering of people from all over the country, with many awards given out in non-music categories like saddlemaker of the year, engraver of the year, bootmaker of the year, etc. in addition to musical categories like Western Swing, Pure Country and Western Music. Many of the winners cited KOOP in their speeches and came over to meet the legendary Rod Moag in person. For a complete list of the categories and honorees, visit the AWA website
