About

Reflections Of Community Outreach, ROCO, is an award-winning News and Public Affairs program created and sponsored by the KOOP Community Council to give voice to non-profits that are KOOP Community Organization Members and other local individuals and organizations who are doing good in our community.  ROCO is a Community Outreach effort offering informative dialogue with local organizations working to make a difference especially within the underserved community.  This faithfully follows KOOP’s mission statement as a community radio station and KOOP’s Community Council’s specific role to reach out into the community.  The program is currently administered, produced and hosted by a Collective who rotate each week to bring as many perspectives to the shows in an attempt to reach the widest range of listeners.

The Collective is currently made up of six members:

Pedro Gatos - Collective founding member, Programmer of Record and Community Council Chair.

Quinten Rhea - 1st Mondays of the Month

Michael A. Brown - 2nd Mondays of the Month

April Sullivan - 3rd Mondays of the Month

Gilka Cespedes - 4th Mondays of the Month

Undercover Greg - 5th Mondays of the Month and ROCO Liaison to the Community Council

They can be contacted at [email protected].

During the year ROCO presents special Celebration Event shows as part of the Community Council's efforts to promote Cultural Sensitivity and Diversity.  Recognizing these events evidences KOOP’s commitment to cultural sensitivity, diversity, and inclusion, as well promoting an appreciation of significant historical events and their local connections.  The 2017 Celebration Events follow, including the name of the Community Council Liaison responsible for facilitating each Event:

ROCO also schedules quarterly programs, through a joint venture with RecognizeGood, featuring guests whom they have vetted and recognized for their significant contributions to the community.  Otherwise topic selection, securing guests and production are left to the responsible Collective member.  For instance Michael A. Brown, after producing a month-long series on Veterans’ issues, has designated his 2nd Monday programs “Boots On the Air” throughout the year.  

All KOOP Volunteers, Programmers and listeners are welcome to suggest a guest or topic and Co-Host ROCO as part of our diversity goal.  ROCO is a show for and by the community we serve and through the largess of KOOP’s Programming Committee is empowered to include this extraordinary participation from the community.  KOOP continuously seeks and accepts input for regularly scheduled shows, special topic series and Celebration Events.
