Last fall, KOOP was selected to participate in Knowbility\'s Accessibility Internet Rally in which nonprofits and other mission-based initiatives are paired with web development teams to create brand-new websites focused on accessibility and digital inclusion. Local web designers Monkee-Boy created the beautiful new site you see today, and our volunteer-powered web team has worked behind the scenes to ready it for launch.
Some of the additions we\'re most excited about are the "now playing" feature on the home page, playlists on each show page, and the general look & feel of our new layout. We\'ll be adding new content and new features in the coming weeks, so please explore and let us know any questions/concerns/comments you might have. We have kept our old site active for a limited time here.
