THE SKINNY ON AROUND THE TOWN SOUNDS - Digging deeper into Austin music - Since its inception some dozen years ago, this three-time winner of KOOP's Silver Mic Award for "Most Austin" Show has spanned the full breadth of work by Austin area musicians past and present, exposing during this period more genres, artists, and fields of musical endeavor from the Austin area than any other weekly radio show anywhere.
