On this week’s The Austin Chronicle Show on 91.7 FM, Kevin Curtin and Julian Towers discuss Julian’s cover story about instrumental hip hop BoomBaptist and his clever, canny forays in self-marketing.

In the second half of the program, Culture Editor Richard Whittaker and I trade recommendations for newer, less-watched holiday movies to add to your seasonal viewing queue.
