DJ Sunil & DJV DJV (djv@koop.org) – I’ve had a passion for radio since I was a child.  It was always on growing up  My dad used to play me old records that featured recordings of old rock and roll DJs.  The patter and cadence of these folks fascinated me.  I used to do impressions of radio DJs to entertain my parents.  I discovered KOOP shortly after I moved to Austin in 1997.  It quickly became my favorite station due to the variety of the programming. After an unfortunate event kicked the station off the air in 2006, I attended a volunteer orientation because I wanted to give back to my favorite radio station,  At that meeting, we were invited to participate in training to become a KOOP Programmer.  I jumped at the opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream to become a radio DJ.  I am so grateful to KOOP for allowing me this opportunity and look forward to the future of this radio station.

DJ AsuraSunil (asurasunil@koop.org) – With a DJ career spanning radio, club residencies, and regular guest DJ sets in Toronto, Ont., Washington DC, and now Austin, TX, I’ve been playing other people’s music for about 30 years… I discovered KOOP shortly after moving to Austin, and finally answered the call to volunteer in the summer of 2010. Since then, I have been one of the hosts of Darkest Before Dawn on KOOP 91.7FM.
