Who are The Lonesome Strangers?

Latest show:More shows can be found on Mixcloud.

Lonesome & strange, Yance-man has been a KOOP DJ since 2016 cutting his teeth as part of Love on the Dole, starting his own freeform show Channel Surfing Fridays at 11 AM, and spending time as a member of Fresh from the Underground. He believes Hank Williams is king, loves cover songs, and hopes to do KOOP’s legacy of country & roots programming proud.

Claude Hopper made his way to KOOP via the open road and his twin, Rocky, brings you classic rock and psychedelia over at Le Chateau Daddy-o at 4:30 on Tuesdays.

Dillon Minacci brings the outlaw and honky-tonk to the Lonesome Stranger Mix. You can also find him on his koop.org streaming show The Double Head Variety Hour Tuesdays at 8.

Melinda Bee grew up with Hee Haw, 1970’s AM country radio, and most importantly open ears that follow the music. She may be a little obsessed with Tennessee Ernie Ford. She loves mid-century, roots, lounge, and cosmic country, with an appreciation for the weird or just plain silly. You can also find her on Fridays at the helm of The Africa Express.
