undercover gregPrior to Volunteering at KOOP I was a Volunteer at WPFW, the Pacifica affiliate in Washington DC.  My work there was behind the scenes for the most part but with the same purpose that I volunteer at KOOP; to provide a greater voice for the disenfranchised.  Since starting with a cover music show at KOOP I have moved into News and Public Affairs programming through Reflections of Community Outreach, ROCO, and the Community Pilot Shows.
