Heather Ross is excited to co-host the Austin Artists Show and hosts The Sex Ed Show on 91.7 Tuesdays at 1:30 pm.  As a local Austin Artist she loves to build community and share resources. Heather got her degree in theatre performance and production with a minor in creative writing at TSU.  Since then she’s worked in the theatre, film, gaming, audio, music and tech industries.  She’s the VP of the Board of Directors for KOOP, a seasoned activist with a hat in the Smithsonian when she was a delegate for Obama, actor, writer, director, producer, singer, musician, avid gardener, and pet owner of 2 dogs, 3 cats and 3 fish.

Julie Rysenga is a lifelong music lover. She has traveled to many international locations throughout her life and truly appreciates the many sounds from around the world. When in India, she fell in love with the eclectic music offered there. Upon moving back to Austin in 2018, after having lived here previously for over 20 years, she was excited that KOOP still had some of her favorite programs. She noticed though that music from India was missing from the FM airwaves and felt the Austin community was missing out on some great artists. With that in mind, she got involved in KOOP in 2019 and created Passport to India. She also hosts Austin Artists where she loves talking to local artists and arts organizations.

Ever since I decided that music is what I wanted to do, it has been about my gut instincts, finding my own way of being me, helping others and surrounding myself with like minded people.
