Abstract: The Texas-Oxford (TexOx) Cluster (TOC) Survey has found more than 10 previously unknown galaxy clusters and cluster candidates in the first of three fields that it is surveying. These clusters form a unique sample of ``radio-active" clusters: clusters rich in powerful radio sources. Searches for radio-rich clusters in known clusters reveal that roughly 3-4% of the intermediate redshift galaxy cluster population are radio-active. A higher fraction (19%) of Butcher-Oemler clusters are radio-active.
